Your Legacy will help transform mental health and addiction care for everyone.

Information for Making a Charitable Gift in your Will

 

Supporting Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care by leaving a gift in your Will provides you an opportunity to support Waypoint’s vision of changing lives by leading the advancement and delivery of compassionate care. Your legacy will help transform mental health and addiction care for everyone.

 

The following is suggested wording for you and your lawyer or estate planner to consider. Please remember to seek appropriate advice on any legal and financial matter from your family, lawyer, estate planner and financial advisor.

 

In general Waypoint can best utilize unrestricted gifts to ensure the highest priorities can be met through a future gift. You may wish to designate a specific program, area or project for your donation to be utilized. Before designating a gift, we encourage you to contact us about potential use of the gift and to ensure the gift can be appropriately applied.
