Leaving a gift to Kids Help Phone in your will (an “estate gift”) indicates your deep commitment to help support future generations of young people in Canada. You’ll be creating a meaningful personal legacy and ensuring Kids Help Phone will continue to be there for young people – today and tomorrow.
There are a number of ways to give an estate gift:
Bequest In Your Will
A bequest in your will is the most common type of estate gift. It is a commitment made to Kids Help Phone through your will to be distributed by your estate upon your death. A bequest may be a specific sum of money, a piece of property, or a portion of your estate. Most people make a bequest when their will is created or when significant life events cause a will to be updated or changed.
Gift of Life Insurance
A gift of life insurance will enable you to make a significant gift through a policy you already own or through a series of affordable premium payments. There are a number of ways to donate and plan your gift using life insurance.
RRSPs and RRIFs
It is easy to donate the proceeds of your Registered Retirement Saving Plan (RRSP) and Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) to Kids Help Phone. Simply change the beneficiary information on the plan document to Kids Help Phone and advise the institution holding your retirement account of the change.
