Give a gift that matters, even after you’re gone

There are several ways to leave a gift in your will:

  • Leave a specific dollar amount
  • Leave a residual request by sharing the remainder of your estate after other payments have occurred
  • Leave a contingent bequest by sharing a part of your estate after your other beneficiaries have passed

 

What are the benefits of leaving a bequest?

  • The gift doesn’t cost you anything now
  • Support Action Against Hunger Canada into the future
  • There is the possibility for an estate tax reduction
  • You can make changes to your will at any time

 

A note on restricted gifts 

Today’s needs might not be the same as tomorrow’s. By leaving an unrestricted bequest, you ensure that your gift will be used where needs are the greatest at a given time, and reach those that need it most without delay. If you wish to support a specific geographic area or program, please contact us to discuss your options.
