Perhaps one of the simplest ways to make a Planned Gift is through a bequest.

Naming the Co-operative Development Foundation of Canada as a beneficiary in your Will allows you to make a larger gift than you thought possible in your lifetime. Additionally, a bequest provides charitable tax credits for your estate so that your loved ones can receive the inheritance you intended. Remember, it is always a good idea to consult with your lawyer or trust company when preparing or making changes to your Will.

We encourage you to let us know if you have left CDF in your Will. Please rest assured that your intention will be held in strictest confidence if this is your wish.
