Donations in Memory

To honour the memory of a loved one, people chose to make a donation in memory of that special person. The Foundation will send a sympathy card in your name to the grieving family.

Gifts in a Will

A gift in a will is the simplest and most common form of planned giving. Through a will, preferably drawn up before a notary, not only do you ensure the financial security of your loved ones, but you can support the Foundation by bequeathing part or all of your assets to it (once all the estate's debts have been paid).
In order to properly identify the Foundation as the beneficiary of your gift in your will, it is strongly recommended that you indicate the Foundation's Canada Revenue Agency registration number: 118923143RR0001.

Gift of Life Insurance

Life insurance can be an effective way to help the Foundation achieve its long-term goals.
In addition to the tax savings, a gift of life insurance offers the opportunity to choose the type of policy and the amount of premium you pay. Your gift cannot be challenged in court, as the life insurance is considered separate from the rest of your estate assets.

Gift of stock

A gift of stock, or securities, is very tax-effective. It allows you to contribute to the Foundation while exempting yourself from capital gains taxes. To do so, you must transfer your securities directly to the Foundation and a tax receipt will be issued for the full market value of your shares on the date of transfer.

Endowment Fund

An endowment fund consists of making a donation to the Foundation and designating a specific need that will benefit from the income generated by the capital. To meet Canada Revenue Agency standards, the principal of this fund remains intact in perpetuity or for a minimum of 10 years. You can choose the name of the fund yourself, for example, in memory of a loved one.


An in-kind donation is a gift of material goods to the Foundation such as property, artwork, equipment, etc. A tax receipt will be issued for the fair market value of the property.

For more information on how to make a donation, please contact the Foundation.

Recognition Program

The Foundation will express its recognition in accordance with the amount of the donation and wishes of the generous donor. This could be done in one of the following ways:

  • Inclusion in the honour roll
  • Naming of a wing or a room, etc.
  • Publication of information on the donation
  • Publication on the Web site
