Planned Giving

Leave a powerful legacy in memory of your life that will impact kids for years to come. By planning a gift for the future you will be making one of the most significant and lasting gifts possible for Canadian children in hospitals and treatment centres.

Join our Legacy Club  by making a Planned Gift:

  • Bequests: Make a gift to Smilezone Foundation through your will or estate plan; leaving a percentage, remainder of wealth or property as an impactful gift.
  • Endowment Funds: Rest easy knowing the cause you care about will continue to function long into the future. Endowment funds provide assurance to the financial success of a charity and thus, allows it to keep functioning effectively. Gift an endowment and Smilezone Foundation will use the interest generated to continue our services year after year while the capital donation remains untouched.
  • Securities: A donation of securities is the most efficient way to make a difference and minimize taxes. When donating shares directly to Smilezone Foundation, CRA does not charge capital gains tax on the securities you donate. This means that you as a donor, can avoid paying tax on capital gains in addition to receiving a Charitable Tax Receipt from Smilezone!
