Let your legacy be a future free of Sickle Cell Disease

LEAVE A GIFT IN YOUR WILL

A legacy gift is a gift with lasting meaning – a gift of time that awards future generations with the blessing of good health.
Many of our supporters have discovered that you don’t need to be wealthy to make a profound difference.  Legacy giving allows you to preserve your financial security for yourself and your loved ones, while giving the gift of hope for those affected by Sickle Cell Disease.

BENEFITS OF LEGACY GIVING

  • It provides you with an opportunity to make a large contribution to members of your community in a way that might otherwise be impossible during your lifetime.
  • It would be an achievement for you and your loved ones to be proud of.
  • Your estate will receive a donation receipt for the full value of your bequest gift.  The resulting tax credits will reduce taxes owing on your final tax return. This helps increase the remaining value of your estate for your beneficiaries.
  • When you include a bequest in your Will, you keep your right to change it at any time.
  • Your cash flow, savings and worldly belongings are still yours, during your lifetime.
