Your legacy can save lives
You can give the gift of better health and longer lives when you include Heart & Stroke in your Will.
Learn how you can make a difference
The most popular way to create a legacy gift is with a charitable gift in a Will, otherwise known as a bequest.
Your gift— whether large or small — will make a difference, helping to fund vital research, and provide support and care to people in Canada affected by heart disease and stroke.
You can name Heart & Stroke as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy, or transfer the ownership of your policy, to create a legacy of life-saving research and healthier lives for future generations. It’s an incredible way to give the gift of life.
Registered savings plans provide you with security and support — and they can also give future generations the chance to have long and healthy lives free from heart disease and stroke. By making Heart & Stroke the beneficiary of your registered savings, you’ll support vital research and change the lives of others with your legacy.
If you are writing a new Will, or updating an existing one, this guide can help. With tools to help you think about your wishes, make decisions for providing for your loved ones, and create your legacy for the future, the guide will give you peace of mind and a simple way forward.
You can make a healthy investment and reduce your taxes by donating shares to Heart & Stroke.
