Bequests

Bequests are an important part of your personal legacy, representing your life and values. They are relatively easy to establish and maintain, and provide an ideal opportunity to create a lasting gift to Wellspring. Your bequest can be for a specific amount or a percentage of your estate.

Benefits of Making a Bequest

  • A bequest is a cost-effective way to establish a substantial gift to Wellspring while maintaining financial security.
  • You can make a commitment to support Wellspring now but retain your funds during your lifetime.
  • A bequest is a tax-effective means of supporting Wellspring: Your estate may claim gifts in the year of death equal to 100% of your net income in that year and the preceding year.
  • A bequest is revocable and can be changed if your financial situation changes.
  • It is a great way to leave a lasting testimony and fulfill your personal wishes for Wellspring.

Establishing a Bequest

  • Please use Wellspring’s full registered name "Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation" in your bequest clause. Wellspring’s charitable registration number is 89272 8940 RR0001.
  • Wellspring would be pleased to assist you and your legal counsel by providing sample wording to ensure that Wellspring can accept your gift as you intend.
