Planned Giving

Your thoughtful gift through your will or as part of your financial plans helps Muscular Dystrophy Canada invest in excellent research and better support for individuals living with neuromuscular disorders. A well planned gift can also provide very attractive tax benefits. Your financial advisor can help you choose a vehicle that is right for you and your personal financial goals.

Planning a gift involves deliberation, as you take into consideration the needs of family as well as a meaningful gift to a cause you believe in. Planning a gift could mean leaving a gift to Muscular Dystrophy Canada in a will or making Muscular Dystrophy Canada a beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Other ideas include giving a gift of art or real estate, a gift of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds, or a gift to a specific fund named after yourself or someone you wish to honour.

We understand that these decisions are not made lightly. When you are ready to proceed, we are here to help you to fulfill your wishes. For more information, you may also download our Guide to Planned Giving.



The 1954 Society

What is The 1954 Society?

The 1954 Society expresses our appreciation for your commitment and support. The 1954 Society recognizes those individuals who have made — or have pledged (such as in a will) – a planned gift to Muscular Dystrophy Canada. In the same way that the founders of Muscular Dystrophy Canada established a lasting legacy by creating the organization in 1954, the members of The 1954 Society establish a legacy of hope for tomorrow through their planned gifts.

For information on how to be recognized in The 1954 Society, or to have a conversation about a planned gift, please contact us.
