Donations in Memory

To honour the memory of a loved one, people chose to make a donation in memory of that special person. The Foundation will send a sympathy card in your name to the grieving family.

Bequest to the Foundation

Even if we constantly put it off, making a will is the best way to ensure that our final wishes are respected. Without specific instructions, your estate will be liquidated in accordance with the Civil Code. By making a will, you ensure that all reasonable provisions will be taken with regard to your dependants. Gifts by will or bequests allow you to maintain your financial security while leaving a lasting legacy to the Foundation of the Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal

The donation could be a specific bequest (an amount of money or a fixed percentage of your estate, real estate, a work of art, shares in a company, etc.) or a residuary bequest of your assets (a percentage of what is left of your estate: any change in the value of your estate will have an effect on the actual value of the bequest). A conditional bequest is also possible (that is, you bequest a part of your estate only if one or more of your heirs is deceased). 

For more information on this type of donation, please contact the Foundation.

Designation of the Foundation of the Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal as the Beneficiary of your Life Insurance Policy

If you donate a life insurance policy, your gift will be more important than you think.

You can:

Purchase a new life insurance policy and designate the Foundation as the owner and non-revocable beneficiary. You would then benefit from the tax credits arising from the donation in an amount that is equal to the annual premiums paid to keep the policy in force. The Foundation would receive the death benefit.  

Donate an existing life insurance policy that you no longer require by designating the Foundation as the owner and non-revocable beneficiary. You would then receive a tax receipt for the cash surrender value of the policy.

Designate a second beneficiary in case that the first beneficiary passes away before you do. You would ensure that the death benefit is not forfeited while investing at the same time in a cause that you hold at heart.

The donation of a life insurance policy is a simple way to make an important donation while reducing your tax obligations right away. This will not reduce the value of the estate that you will leave to your loved ones. For more information on this type of donation, please contact the Foundation.

Recognition Program

The Foundation will express its recognition in accordance with the amount of the donation and wishes of the generous donor. This could be done in one of the following ways:

  • Inclusion in the honour roll
  • Naming of a wing or a room, etc.
  • Publication of information on the donation
  • Publication on the Web site
