Leave a gift that will change people's lives:

  • Gift by will
    A simple provision in your Will to leave a gift of your assets to Sunnybrook.

  • Securities / mutual funds / flow-through shares / stock options
    A gift of publicly listed securities to Sunnybrook qualifies for special benefits with changes in income tax regulations announced in 2006.

  • Beneficiary gift (life insurance/RSP/RIF)
    Name Sunnybrook as the partial or full beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy or RSP / RRI F, and this gift will pass outside of your estate, so it is protected from probate or creditors.

  • Life insurance
    Receive an income tax receipt for the annual premium payments by naming Sunnybrook as the owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy.

  • Charitable gift annuities
    If you currently receive income from GICs, you may be interested in purchasing a charitable gift annuity. Your income is guaranteed for life, and is virtually tax-free.

  • Charitable remainder trust
    An effective way to provide you with guaranteed income for life, this is a deferred gift, so the proceeds from arranging this gift now will be realized by Sunnybrook in the future.

The decision to leave a gift to Sunnybrook in your will may take place at any stage of your life. Any time is the right time. This is when it matters most.
