Enhance Your Legacy - Help Others Breathe with Ease
Many of us question the purpose of our lives. What are we here to do? How will we be remembered? Many people want to leave a mark on the world that speaks positively of your time here. Naming the Manitoba Lung Association as a beneficiary in your will is a meaningful way for you to make a difference in the world beyond your lifetime. Your gift will help fund important programs to support people who want to breathe easier.
How to Make a Legacy Gift:
- Engage the advice of professionals, i.e. a lawyer and an accountant. These people will ensure that your Will truly reflects your wishes, is accurate and legally binding.
- Choose an Executor of your Will – someone you trust and rely on to carry out your wishes.
- Make a list of your assets.
- Decide how you would like to divide your assets. Consider your heirs first; charity second.
- Decide on the type of gifts you would like to leave.
- Keep your Will in a safe place.
We would love to talk with you about your legacy planning. We would welcome sharing what we do at the Manitoba Lung Association, what opportunities are available and how your gift will change the course of lung disease in Manitoba. Most importantly we’d like to share with you today what your generosity will make possible tomorrow.
Getting the wording correct is important.
If you choose to leave a specific amount in your will to the Manitoba Lung Association, here is the wording:
“I direct my Trustees to pay or transfer the sum of $_____ to the Manitoba Lung Association (a division of the Sanatorium Board of Manitoba) to be used for the Manitoba Lung Association’s general purposes as its directors see fit. The charitable registration number for The Manitoba Lung Association is 107952798 RR0001.”
Another option is...
If you would like to leave a portion of your estate to the Manitoba Lung Association after all debts and specific bequests to loved ones are made, here is the wording:
“I direct my Trustees to pay or transfer all (or a stated percentage) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate the Manitoba Lung Association (a division of the Sanatorium Board of Manitoba) to be used for the Manitoba Lung Association’s general purposes as its directors see fit. The charitable registration number for The Manitoba Lung Association is 107952798 RR0001.”
