(Leave a gift to CPAR in your will)

There are many ways to leave a gift in your will to CPAR:

  • A percentage of your estate
  • Specific dollar amount
  • A share of your estate after your loved one’s needs have been met (residual bequest)
  • A share of your estate after your other beneficiaries have passed on (contingent request)
  • Gifts of real property, bonds, specific mutual funds or life insurance

We are happy to provide you with examples of wording that best expresses your wishes in your bequest to CPAR.

CPAR is also pleased to provide a complimentary guide to help you get started.

This handy guide will help you gather all of the information you will need and will also identify decisions you will have to make before you visit your lawyer to draft and finalize your will.

The guide is in printable format. Please call us if you wish to receive a copy of the complimentary Will Planning Guide in the mail.

If you already have a will and wish to leave a gift to CPAR, you can add the bequest through a properly drafted and executed “codicil” (a simple addendum to your will).

You can also make a gift of life insurance or retirement funds by making Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief the “beneficiary” of your insurance policy and/or your retirement funds.

If a gift of RRSP or Life Insurance is the right approach for you, please contact your insurance provider or the company holding your retirement funds to discuss and request a “change of beneficiary” form.
