Wills and Bequest
Make a specific bequest that designates a certain amount of cash or a specific item or asset you own at the time of your death. Or you can make a residual bequest that gifts part or all of your remaining estate to the ALS Society of BC after the debts have been cleared and specific provisions have been made for family and friends.
Tax Benefits: A bequest to the ALS Society of BC is eligible for a gift receipt that can be used for a tax credit against final income tax payable, both in the year of death and in the previous year, up to a limit of 100% of your taxable income.
To include a bequest to the ALS Society of BC in your will, you should consult with a lawyer or notary experienced in estate planning. They can help you prepare a will or add a codicil to your existing will.
