The Benefits

  • Reduced taxes – CFTC will issue an official receipt for the full value of the Will bequest. This receipt can then be used to reduce the tax payable on your final return.
  • Flexible and revocable – A charitable gift can be made for any amount and is revocable at any time should your financial situation change.
  • Leave a lasting legacy – Your charitable gift will make a real difference to children and communities affected by poverty, leaving a lasting legacy for you, your family or anyone you wish to honour.

How it works

  • 1 A Will bequest can be as simple as a sentence or two naming Canadian Feed The Children in your Will or adding a codicil to your existing Will. You will find sample wording in the free guide below.
  • 2You can designate a specific dollar amount, a particular asset or a fixed percentage of your estate to CFTC. You can also request that the principal of your charitable bequest be held in an endowment.
  • 3The designated amount will be donated to Canadian Feed The Children’s most urgent needs or you can direct your bequest towards a particular purpose or program.
