A gift of life insurance

A gift of life insurance is a wonderful way to leave a lasting legacy to Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Designating Muscular Dystrophy Canada as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy provides a valuable tax savings to you today while making a significant impact on the quality of life for persons affected by neuromuscular disorders in the future.

A gift of retirement funds – RRSP or RRIF

A gift of retirement funds (RRSP/RRIF) to Muscular Dystrophy Canada is an effective way to transfer your assets to support persons affected by neuromuscular disorders. When Muscular Dystrophy Canada is designated as a beneficiary of a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF), it is an effective way to offset taxes at the time of your death. This ensures your savings are directed to beneficiaries most important to you. UNDER QUOTE

Receiving the lift chair from MDC has helped me in a lot of ways. Before getting the lift chair, the way I would stand up from sitting would cause pain and injure my back. Now that I have the lift chair, I am able to get up on my own without injuring my back. I received the lift chair when I was pregnant and this chair was so helpful not only while I was pregnant but after I had my baby. As well, I also received a lift to enter my home from MDC and now I don’t have to worry about falling or how I will get up the stairs when I am very tired. Now that I have my baby, this outdoor lift has helped tremendously not only for myself but to help me in raising my family. I never imagined there would be equipment out there that would help me like this until I received these items, I really love it. Thank you.
