Legacy giving involves important and sometimes complicated decisions. MCC staff in our provincial offices have many years of experience helping our generous supporters align their deeply-held beliefs, values and priorities with the work of MCC. We‘re happy to help you explore how a planned gift to MCC can fit in with your life plan!

Assistance

Professional advisors can also help you determine the size and timing of your gift, as well as the associated tax benefits. They, along with MCC staff, can then match your wishes with your resources and the needs of MCC.

MCC staff can also speak with your financial or legal advisor.

MCC recommends the services provided by Abundance Canada, particularly when processing donations of securities. Contact your local MCC office for a referral to an Abundance Canada consultant. In Saskatchewan, MCC also recommends the services provided by Mennonite Trust Ltd.

Gift language for your will

Sample gift language for designated and undesignated gifts can be made available to ensure your legacy giving happens the way you intend.

Substantial or unusual designated gifts

MCC is privileged to receive designated or restricted gifts of substantial size or unusual designation. These donations are gifted with very specific directions on how they are to be used. If this is the type of legacy giving you have in mind, we will be happy to help you explore options and suitable gift language.

For more information, please contact your local office about our gift acceptance policy.

Anonymous legacy giving

If you'd like your legacy giving to remain anonymous during your lifetime or after your passing, MCC will make sure your wishes are respected.

Gift refusal

It is possible that MCC may refuse a gift. This can happen when there is a liability attached to a gift that would create an undesired financial burden for MCC, or if the gift or associated liability violates federal or provincial laws.

For more information, please contact your local office about our gift acceptance policy.

 

You have been a faithful part of the MCC story, and we are thankful for your generosity! MCC is built on people helping people and sharing the many blessings God has given us.

Thank you for considering leaving a legacy that reflects your passion for the work of MCC!
