Gifts of Bequest


A charitable bequest in a Will is the easiest way to leave a lasting legacy.

How it Works

A bequest can be as simple as a sentence or two naming the CJCS Foundation in your Will or adding a codicil to your existing Will. We can provide you with sample wording.

You can designate a specific dollar amount, a particular asset or a fixed percentage of your estate to our Foundation. 

The designated amount will be used to help our centre where the need is greatest, or you can direct your bequest towards a particular purpose or program.


Reduced taxes

The CJCS Foundation will issue an official receipt for the full value of the bequest. This receipt can then be used to reduce the tax payable on your final return.

Flexible and revocable

A charitable gift can be made for any amount and is revocable at any time should your financial situation change.

Leave a lasting legacy

Your charitable gift will make a real difference to our seniors, leaving a lasting legacy for you and your family.
