One out of every 166 school aged children in Saskatchewan has an autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Preparing a gift in your Will by leaving a bequest is a simple and thoughtful act that reflects
your care for others and a vision for the future. Leaving a legacy donation helps ensure that the
charity of your choice will be well supported after you are gone.
If you would like to support Autism Services in your Will, you can set aside a dollar amount
or designate a percentage of the residue of your estate (the remainder of the estate once all
designated gifts have been made and administrative expenses and taxes have been paid) for
Autism Services. You can also bequeath a specific piece of property such as a home, securities
(for instance, stocks or mutual funds), or other financial assets. The tax benefits derived from
these gifts can often be quite substantial.
If you intend to leave a gift in your Will, large or small, to Autism Treatment Services of
Saskatchewan Inc., 119141323RR0001, the process is straightforward and costs nothing during
your lifetime. It is simply a matter of preparing your Will and discussing with your lawyer what
your intentions are.
