Thank you for considering a legacy gift to MCC!
There are several ways to establish your legacy through MCC by planning a gift in your will. You can arrange gifts of cash, life insurance, securities or property. Once you decide that legacy giving through MCC aligns with your values and life plan, leaving a gift will require a few additional considerations, such as:
- Type of gift and amount: We encourage you to discuss your intentions with your legal or financial advisor to help you choose which is the most suitable gift option for you.
- General or specific designation: Is there a particular need or impact you would like your legacy gift to address? Or would you prefer MCC use your gift in a more general way, to support our work where it is needed most? MCC staff can help you with these discussions to ensure your values are met.
- Update or creation of your will: When describing your gift, you will require legal information to clearly identify MCC, such as the charitable registration number, legal address and legal contact.
- Share your story: We would love to hear about why you or your loved ones have blessed MCC with a legacy gift!
There are other giving options in addition to those outlined in our Legacy Giving package, such as life income gifts. These gifts allow you to give assets to MCC while still providing income for yourself and others during your lifetime. More information regarding life income gifts can be found on our website, although we recommend you consult with your financial or legal advisor for more details. If you do not have an advisor, MCC recommends Abundance Canada (formerly Mennonite Foundation of Canada) or connect with your MCC office to discuss other options.
We are happy to support you along your giving journey or, if you prefer, we can work with financial advisors, legal counsel and any additional foundations working for you.
Thank you for considering a planned future gift to MCC! Leaving a legacy. It’s your story to tell.
