Help Canadians Affected by Osteoporosis by Leaving a Gift in Your Will

When you leave a gift to Osteoporosis Canada in your Will, you can feel confident that you’ve made a difference in the lives of those affected by osteoporosis. You can ensure that your legacy of giving will go to help educate, empower and support individuals and communities on bone health and in the risk-reduction and treatment of osteoporosis.

Planned Giving 4With over 2 million Canadians affected by osteoporosis and fewer than 20% of fracture patients in Canada currently undergoing diagnosis or adequate treatment for osteoporosis – there is more work to be done and we need ongoing support to continue our work to help make women and men unbreakable. You can make a difference – by leaving a gift to the Osteoporosis Canada in your Will.

With your help, we teach Canadians how to improve their bone health so osteoporosis can never take hold. We support those already diagnosed, and work to improve their quality of life. And we pursue research and treatment breakthroughs that keep more people healthy. Together, we will make Canadians unbreakable.

Planned Giving

People often worry that leaving a legacy gift means that there will be less to give to their loved ones. The truth is, you can make a legacy gift without taking away from the gifts left to your family and friends.

The Canadian government has created valuable tax incentives to encourage Canadians to leave legacy gifts. When you leave a legacy gift, your estate receives a tax credit for the full value of the gift, which adds a tax credit to your final income tax return.

This can help to maximize the value of your residual estate for your beneficiaries.

Making A Will 101

No one likes to think about emergency planning but 57% of Canadian adults don’t have a will, and that number goes up to 89% among millennials. Having a solid estate plan in place is a key part of “adulting” – just like getting insurance or an RRSP. Wills can be confusing though: who needs one, what are they, and what do I need to know to get one in place? In this webinar Willful will guide you through will basics, bust some myths, and up your estate planning knowledge. We’ll also highlight legacy giving basics.
