The choice that you face with a portion of your estate is between giving it to the government and giving it to God. The reality is that all estates incur taxes when they are probated. Depending on the size and makeup of the estate, that tax burden can be significant. By making a gift to a charity such as CBM, that tax burden can be substantially reduced or even eliminated altogether, and with little reduction in what is ultimately available for distribution to your loved ones. The following are assets that can be used to make a planned gift to CBM:
- Stocks, bonds and mutual funds
- RRSPs and RIFs
- Property (home, cottage, condo, art work, etc)
- Life insurance policy
To find out more about leaving a gift to CBM in your will or about establishing a trust fund, please contact Blair Clark at CBM by e-mail or by phone at 905.821.3533.
Wills and Estate Planning
Legacy for Ministry is a program that offers Will and Estate Planning workshops for Canadian Baptists through local churches, providing information to help in the important task of making a will.

This program is offered to our Canadian Baptist constituency in partnership with Canadian Baptist Ministries, Canadian Baptists of Western Canada, Baptist Convention of Ontario and Quebec, Baptist Women of Ontario and Quebec and Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches.
