Legacy giving

A legacy gift to Food Allergy Canada is a powerful and enduring personal statement to the over 3 million Canadians impacted by food allergy about your commitment to them and their future. Your legacy gift will make it possible for Canadians to live better now and for generations to come.

Ways to make a legacy gift

There are simple ways to make a legacy gift – a gift in your Will, using the proceeds of a life insurance policy or making us a beneficiary of a registered plan (RRSP, RRIF or TFSA).

Your family, lawyer and financial advisor will help in determining how to make the most effective and impactful future gift.

Please remember, even if you already have a Will, you can include a bequest to Food Allergy Canada through a simple codicil, which is a legal document that acts as a supplement to your Will.

To help you get started, you can download sample bequest language for your Will.
