When you are updating your will, or your life insurance coverage, leave a legacy by including Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada in your will as a beneficiary. Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada holds a special place in the hearts of many. Legacy gifts will outlast your lifetime and touch the lives of future generations.
Leaving a legacy is an element of estate planning, which is important to everyone. The importance of estate planning is explored in this article courtesy of volunteer and financial planner, Ryan Fraser. Ryan has also provided another article: 'How to make a transformational gift by "disinheriting" the taxman'.
The decision to leave a bequest to Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is a very personal one. Below are some of the powerful stories of those who have chosen to make legacy gifts.
Your legacy will make a difference in the lives of people making the journey with a brain tumour and their families. You will bring hope that in the future, brain tumour research will continue to forge new treatments.
Your gift for tomorrow will ensure that the support and information so critical to patients and their families will continue to be provided.
In many cases, legacy gifts can help you enjoy significant tax benefits.
Richard Seewald's beautiful Tree of Life photograph symbolizes the hope Legacy and Tribute gifts bring to those affected by a brain tumour, like his son Ben.
It is recommended that you consult your own tax and legal advisors as well as your family when doing your tax or estate planning.

Each person volunteers in a different way and for different reasons. For Liz, giving back to Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada as a volunteer was a “no brainer”.
