Planned & Legacy Giving


The gift you leave to the Canadian Medical Foundation (CMF) is an investment in the future of Canada’s health care system and the physicians from coast-to-coast-to-coast that are at its core.

What Does Your Gift Mean to the Canadian Medical Foundation?

Like any other investment, a planned gift made to the CMF will bring you satisfaction in the knowledge that you have helped the CMF fulfill its primary Mission of keeping Canada’s physicians healthy.  With the provision and promotion of physician health and well-being, all of Canada is made a healthier place in which to live and thrive.  Your gift will also help to promote medical education with, among other things, the provision of bursaries to medical students in Canada.

Planned Giving Options:

  • Bequests
  • Annuities
  • Shares
  • Life Insurance
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts

Evaluate Your Goals and Objectives

A professional financial advisor may be solely motivated to minimize your tax payable, without being concerned with or even aware of your philanthropic goals.  Financial planners may be interested in maximizing commissions or in amassing assets that they have under their administration.  Neither of these types of advisors may be aware of your charitable interests.

When instructed to consider your philanthropic alternatives, your financial and legal advisors become better counsel because they are more fully informed.  However, before your counsel can best offer their informed advice, you must first evaluate your own goals and objectives and take the step of advising them.  Armed with that knowledge, your advisors can properly advise you in the various alternatives to meet your charitable goals while minimizing tax payable.  An informed professional at the Canadian Medical Foundation can assist you to elucidate these philanthropic goals.
