My mother’s gift to CNIB Guide Dogs has taught me and my siblings the grace in giving. CNIB has shown appreciation for my mother’s [charitable] gift, and a puppy is about to have a life of service and purpose.
What information do I need so that I can include CNIB in my will?
When making a gift in your will to CNIB, you will need the following information:
- CNIB’s legal name: The Canadian National Institute for the Blind
- Registered Charity Number: 119219459 RR0003
- CNIB’s address: 1929 Bayview Avenue, Toronto, Ontario, M4G 3E8
- Then get in touch with us to let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-563-2642
Knowing I’m able to make a difference and leave a legacy fills me with a wonderful sense of satisfaction.
Make a Gift in your Will
Leaving a gift to a charity in your will is known as a “bequest.” Bequests allow you to leave a lasting legacy of generosity in support of causes you care about.
A bequest can be a dollar amount, a specific asset, a percentage of your estate, or the residual amount of your estate.
Create an endowment for lasting impact
An endowment is a permanent fund held by CNIB where a portion of the interest generated each year supports our work in perpetuity. This means that your gift will create impact for people who are blind, partially sighted, or Deafblind for generations to come.
You can choose to create an endowment during your lifetime, or you can choose to create an endowment through a gift in your will.
