Corporate relationships are important to the Last Post Fund. Every year, businesses across Canada provide us with vital funding. The Last Post Fund encourages businesses to become involved in a variety of ways. Whether it’s through financial support, equipment donations or even internal outreach efforts through corporate newsletters, we will work with you to ensure the values of your company are withheld through our commemoration efforts.
You can support the LPF through your estate. By including a legacy in your will, you will be able to make a donation to the LPF on your death which you may not have been able to make during your lifetime. Estate legacy provides an official tax receipt that offsets taxes otherwise payable by your estate, leaving more money to leave to others. Whatever the size of your legacy, by giving to the LPF in your will you will ensure an enduring contribution to Canada's Veterans.
Life insurance, stocks and retirement funds can be designated to the LPF through your will. Please ensure that you designate your legacy to "Last Post Fund". Upon receiving your bequest the LPF will issue a donation receipt to your estate for the full amount of your bequest.
Recent bequest donation funds have been directed to the National Field of Honour for the purchase of equipment and much needed repairs to the Gate of Remembrance (built in 1940). For more information about remembering the LPF in your will, please call the Executive Director of Last Post Fund at 1-800-465-7113, ext. 221, or contact the executive director by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
