Wills & Bequests:

A bequest can be in many different forms:

  1. Charitable Bequests – can take many forms and often consist of cash, real property and/or securities like stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
  2. Residual Bequests – name the Dr. Jay Children’s Grief Centre as the beneficiary of all, or a percentage of your estate after all debts, taxes, administrative expenses and specific/legacies bequests have been paid. Because this type of gift leaves a percentage rather than a fixed amount to the Centre, inflation will not reduce the value of your gift.
  3. Specific/Legacy Bequests – designate an exact dollar amount, percentage or particular asset, such as the stock of a certain company, to be donated to the Dr. Jay Children’s Grief Centre.
  4. Contingent Bequests – take effect when you name the Dr. Jay Children’s Grief Centre as an alternate beneficiary. Your gift is given to the Centre only if other beneficiaries in your Will die before you.

Sample Wording:

“My estate trustees shall pay ______% of the residue of my estate to the Dr. Jay Children’s Grief Centre, Toronto, ON, for the purpose of supporting the highest priority needs as determined by the Centre.”

“My estate trustees shall pay the sum of $ ______ (or transfer assets with an equal value) to the Dr. Jay Children’s Grief Centre, Toronto, ON, for the purpose of supporting the highest priority needs as determined by the Centre.”
