Leave a Legacy

You can support The Elliott Community by keeping us in mind during your estate and financial planning. The information below provides a brief overview of possible giving options. We encourage donors to always discuss plans with professional legal and financial counsel as they develop their financial and/or estate plans.

Leave a Gift in Your Will

You may make a bequest or gift through your estate by including a provision in your will or living trust, or by naming The Elliott Community as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. The amount left to The Elliott Community can be expressed as a dollar amount or as a percentage of the assets to be given. A bequest gift will create a legacy that celebrates your life, your family, or the life of a loved one that you wish to honour; while at the same time leaving a significant and lasting impact on the lives of others.

Gifts of RRSP or RRIF Plans
You can donate your Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) and Registered Retired Income Funds (RRIFs) to the Elliott Community. RRSP or RRIF funds often include family members or other significant loved ones as beneficiaries. However, if you are confident that your family is provided for, including The Elliott Community in your RRSP or RRIF plan is a greatly appreciated donation.

In-kind gifts include assets such as new program equipment, indoor and outdoor furniture. These types of gifts enable The Elliott Community to focus on providing improved healthcare programs and services that directly benefit our residents. The fair market value of the gift is assessed by a third party qualified professional. The donor will receive a charitable income tax receipt for the appraised value of the asset.
