Gift & Estate Planning

Help us unlock the mysteries of Parkinson’s disease

What you do today could help unlock the mysteries of Parkinson’s disease. Your future gift could be the key to improve the diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s disease, bringing us closer to a cure. Your donation will provide education, support services and help advocate for Canadians living with Parkinson’s disease, and fund research into the causes, progression, and treatment of Parkinson's.

Your Will – a crucial document

After providing for the financial needs of your family and heirs, your Will allows you to help others. Each year, thousands of Canadians designate a bequest to benefit their favourite charity. Gifts by Will are becoming an important source of support because they enable individuals to make significant gifts that they may not have been able to make during their lifetime. A planned gift is a way to support people with Parkinson’s while helping you achieve the peace of mind that comes with completing your Will.

Ways to Give

Gift to Charity in Your Will - A simple, meaningful way to reduce your taxes while helping people with Parkinson’s disease.

Gifts of Stocks & Securities - If you donate securities to charity, you pay no capital gains tax, and receive a charitable tax receipt that entitles you to additional tax savings.

Gift of Life Insurance - When you name Parkinson Canada as beneficiary and/or owner of your life insurance policy, you could benefit from tax savings in your lifetime or tax savings for your estate.

Registered Assets (RRSP & RRIF) - Donating all or part of an RRSP or RRIF to Parkinson Canada is an effective way to reduce the taxes payable by your estate.

Charitable Gift Annuity - Allows you to take care of your own financial needs. In return for making a gift to Parkinson Canada, you receive guaranteed income for life.

Charitable Remainder Trust - A way of giving assets such as stocks, bonds, securities, mutual funds or real estate to Parkinson Canada through a trust agreement.
