Bequests are gifts that are made as part of a will or trust. A bequest can be to a person, or it can be a charitable bequest to a nonprofit organization, trust or foundation. Anyone can make a bequest—in any amount—to an individual or charity. Please remember us in your legacy.
If our services have inspired you or a loved one to include the Near North Palliative Care Network in a will, we are humbled to be considered by such generosity. Any amount helps the NNPCN serve its clients, but please keep the following in mind when listing the NNPCN as a recipient:
- The legal name of the NNPCN is the Near North Palliative Care Network (Nipissing-Parry Sound) .
- The NNPCN will not accept gifts involving property, such as a house.
- If conditions of the bequest involve specific ways in which it will be spent, please reach out to us beforehand to inquire in order to make sure the gift is not declined.
- Have a lawyer handle the bequest! Bequests can be very complicated, so having a lawyer handle it’s planning and delivery will help the bequest be clear, valid, acceptable, and kept track of.
Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns with including the NNPCN in you or a loved one’s will.
