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. 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 email@example.com.
To assist you, here is some additional information and some sample clauses which you may wish to consider including in your will:
1. A "General Bequest" is a gift which you make in your will and which is paid from the value of your estate to the LPF as follows: "To Last Post Fund, I give the amount of $________ to be used by Last Post Fund as its Board of Directors may determine from time to time."
2. A "Residual Bequest" is a gift which you make in your will and which is paid from the remaining portion of your estate to Last Post Fund after all other terms of your will have been satisfied, as follows: "To Last Post Fund, I leave the whole of the residue of my estate to be used by Last Post Fund as its Board of Directors may determine from time to time"
The sample clauses set out above are examples only, and you may wish to discuss them and your plan to remember the Last Post Fund in your will with the Executive Director of Last Post Fund. All information will be held strictly in confidence. Canadian Charity Registration Number: 11900 9181 RR0002
