Enhance Your Legacy - Help Others Breathe with Ease
How will you be remembered? Leave a mark on the world that goes beyond your lifetime. Naming The Lung Association, Manitoba in your Will is a significant way for you to make a difference. Your gift will help other Manitobans who are struggling with lung health concerns by funding important programs and cutting-edge research for years to come.
How to Make a Legacy Gift:
- Engage the advice of professionals, i.e. your lawyer, financial adviser, or 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.
- Decide how you would like to divide your assets. Consider your family first; charity second.
- Decide on the type of gifts you would like to leave.
We would love to talk to you about your legacy planning. We would welcome sharing what we do at The Lung Association, Manitoba, what opportunities are available and how your gift will change the course of lung disease in Manitoba.
