Legacy Gift and Estate Planning

Planning a legacy gift is a way to honour and celebrate the charitable work, the people, and the causes you have come to care about in your lifetime. The most common legacy gift is a gift in your Will, naming KidsAbility as a beneficiary. As part of estate planning, a gift in your Will helps ensure that KidsAbility continues to be a place of hope for children and families for generations to come. Help make brighter futures happen by considering a legacy gift today!

Our legal name and address as well as our Foundation charitable registration number should be cited when making a gift by Will:

KidsAbility Centre for Child Development Foundation* (Legal Name*)
500 Hallmark Drive
Waterloo ON Canada, N2K 3P5

Charitable Business Number: 89094 3673 RR0001

Other common ways to create a legacy gift:

By completing a Letter of Intention you are informing us of your intent to include KidsAbility in your Will. This information provides us the opportunity to discuss your wishes and how your gift will impact the future of KidsAbility. If you wish to designate your gift to a specific area of KidsAbility, we welcome the opportunity to discuss your intentions. Most of all we would like to thank you for your generosity and ask you to consider joining our Legacy Society.

We invite all questions and ideas about legacy gift options to KidsAbility and recommend speaking with your family and your professional advisors about your decision. It would be our honour to help you create your lasting legacy and ensure your wishes are realized in years to come. All inquiries and communication with us will be met with the utmost confidentiality. 

We welcome you to meet the Way family to find out how their commitment to KidsAbility will help ensure that children and youth with special needs realize their true talents, gifts and abilities.
