Planned Giving

The Laurel Foundation has a Planned Giving Program in place to generate funds and / or endowments necessary to ensure long-term continuity of support for a person’s lifetime. Through financial planning and arrangements defined by the provisions of an estate, families will be able to rely on the Foundation to create an endowment after they are deceased to provide the appropriate care and support needed.

We welcome enquiries and suggestions as to how the Laurel Foundation can improve its services to persons with autism spectrum and mental health disorders, and how you can Leave a Legacy for Mental Health.

The Laurel Foundation’s Planned Giving Program is for those donors and supporters who wish to leave a legacy in their name to benefit persons with mental health or behavioural challenges who require ongoing support.

A present or future charitable gift is not only a testament to your generosity and concern for members of your family, friends, or others in need, but also has important tax advantages. Current allowable deductions, or future donations through a designated life insurance policy, a Charitable Remainder Trust, or a bequest in your will can be of considerable personal benefit and impact on your estate. Your financial adviser, accountant or lawyer can assist you in developing such a contribution, and explore other options for your consideration.

Charitable donations trigger Charitable Gift Receipts at the time of the donation, which could have significant advantages through tax benefits for you and your estate.

The Laurel Foundation would be pleased to provide further information on these, or other options, on a confidential basis.

Please contact The Laurel Foundation’s Executive Director to examine the benefits of an ongoing gift, that will recognize your legacy of caring.
