Ways to Donate

Your Impact

Just a few decades ago, if you were diagnosed with MS, your doctor’s only advice was to go home and rest. Today, living with MS looks very different than it did 20 years ago. Powerful support from donors has led to amazing improvements in the diagnosis and management of MS.

But too many people still face uncertainty. With 11 Canadians being diagnosed with MS each day, we need a cure more than ever.

A world free of MS is possible. It’s worth fighting for. And it’s a future you can help build – a legacy you can leave behind – with a gift in your will to the MS Society of Canada.

Leave A Legacy

With a gift in your will, you can fund powerful MS research, strengthen caring MS communities, and drive forward vital MS advocacy. Your gift will extend a lifetime of MS support into the future – and the best part is that anyone can make this kind of charitable gift.

Support MS In Your Will

Donate Securities, Life Insurance and RRIFs/RRSPs

  • What are gifts of securities? When such stocks, bonds or mutual funds are converted to cash the realized capital gain is taxable. You can decrease the financial impact this will have by donating your publicly listed security directly to a charitable organization. In May 2006, the Federal government eliminated the capital gains tax on gifts of securities to registered charitable organizations.
  • What are gifts of life insurance? Gifts of life insurance are a practical way to leave a legacy in support of Canadians living with MS. Gifts of life insurance are one of our most popular legacy giving options, second only to gifts in a will.
  • What are gifts of RRSPs and RRIFs? You can name the MS Society as a direct beneficiary for your RRSP, RRIF, or Canada Pension assets and receive tax benefits as a result.
