WILLS & BEQUESTS

It's not something anyone really wants to think about. What will happen to your assets after your death. If helping wildlife is important to you, consider a bequest to Zoocheck Canada. It's one of the most effective ways to ensure that your voice will continue to be heard for years to come.

It's Your Decision
Your will is an important document. In fact, it may be one of the most important documents you ever prepare. It gives you a chance to decide where your assets will go after your death. If you prepare a will, those causes that were important to you during your lifetime will continue to receive your support. A properly prepared will is a legal document that will ensure that your wishes are respected.

If you plan to include Zoocheck in your will, the correct legal name for the organization is Zoocheck Canada Inc. and our address is 2646 St. Clair Ave East, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M4B 3M1

Below is some suggested wording that you can use in your will:

For a Fixed Amount:

"I will give to Zoocheck Canada Inc. of 788 1/2 O'Connor Drive, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M4B 2S6, the sum of $ ____________ to be used in such a manner as the Board of Directors of Zoocheck Canada Inc. shall, at its discretion, determine."

For a Percentage of the Estate:

"I will give to Zoocheck Canada Inc. of 788 1/2 O'Connor Drive, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M4B 2S6, ________% of my estate to be used in such a manner as the Board of Directors of Zoocheck Canada Inc. shall, at its discretion, determine."

For the Residue of the Estate:

"I will give to Zoocheck Canada Inc. of 788 1/2 O'Connor Drive, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M4B 2S6, the rest and residue of my estate to be used in such a manner as the Board of Directors of Zoocheck Canada Inc. shall, at its discretion, determine."

Thank you for considering Zoocheck for inclusion in your will. If you'd like additional information, please contact the Zoocheck office.

CHARITY LIFE INSURANCE PROGRAM

CharityLife logo

The Charity Life Insurance Program allows you to provide for a larger legacy tomorrow with a smaller commitment today. Although charities are always looking to fund immediate needs, they also recognize that their future needs are growing and must plan now for the future.

It Benefits both You and Your Charity

You will receive a receipt for the entire amount of the life insurance premiums you donate each year. When the life insurance proceeds are transferred to your charity, there is no tax receipt generated, but the funds are received by the charity, tax-free.

Itís Easy

With the Charity Life Insurance Program, your commitment is only for three or five years, at which time the program is paid-up.

Itís Flexible

If for some reason you cannot continue with the payment of your annual premiums after the first year on a 3-year plan; or after the second year on a 5-year plan, a percentage of your coverage will automatically become paid-up. This ensures that your favourite charity will receive a future gift from you.

  • The gift is immediate, which also gives you immediate tax deductions.
  • Your confidentiality is assured, as life insurance is not a matter of public record.
  • A gift of life insurance is flexible and can be designed to meet your gifting desires.

Plan Details

  • Available for ages 18 to 75
  • Available coverage of $15,000 to $50,000
