Leave a Legacy

By making a planned gift to the MAB-Mackay Foundation, you can make the most of your assets while helping us to build a better future for so many in our community with sensory or physical impairments. 

“My late husband Jerzy and I came from Poland many years ago with nothing, and built a life for ourselves here in Canada. When his sight began to deteriorate and he was unable to read or write, we both coped with his depression and loss of autonomy. The MAB-Mackay stepped in and made a meaningful and positive difference in our lives. It made me feel happy and gave me peace of mind to leave a legacy to such a worthy cause as the MAB-Mackay. It is my way to give back and to say thank you.”

-Dr. Jolanta Gutkowska 


About the MAB-Mackay Legacy Society
A planned gift is a charitable donation whose benefit can be felt immediately or at a later date of your choosing. It is a simple act of generosity that will help the MAB-Mackay to develop its vision while allowing you to provide your estate with important tax and income benefits.

Perhaps the simplest way to make a planned gift is to name the MAB-Mackay Foundation in your Will. Gifts can be a specific amount or a percentage or residue of your estate or any other asset. The fiscal advantages that follow can dramatically reduce the taxes to be paid out by the estate.

Life Insurance
This type of giving allows you to make a significant impact through a small annual payment. Several options are available, including designating the MAB-Mackay Foundation as the full or partial beneficiary of your policy. You can also transfer ownership of an existing policy and benefit from significant tax savings.

Charitable Remainder Trusts
This approach allows you to make a substantial contribution that also guarantees you personal income for your lifetime that is tax-free. The trust manages the allocated capital until the time of death, at which time the remaining assets will be transferred to the MAB-Mackay Foundation.


Endowment Funds
This form of planned giving allows you to make a significant gift that is also a lasting legacy in honor or in memory of a loved one. You can specify where the funds will be directed as well as the name of the fund; the MAB-Mackay Foundation will benefit from the income generated on the capital transferred.

Please consult your independent financial or legal advisor before arranging your planned gift. Members of the MAB-Mackay Foundation Legacy Society’s advisory committee are also available to provide professional, confidential advice or assistance upon request.

Organize an Event

Each year, we are approached by a variety of people who organize events in order to raise funds and awareness for the MAB-Mackay Foundation. They undertake special projects to help us because of their personal experience at the Centre, the inspiration of family and friends, or simply because they care about the visually, hearing and physically impaired clients that come through our doors.

You too can help our special clients by organizing an event with your school, your friends or your family:  a bake sale, a benefit breakfast or barbeque, a dance or any other activity that you can think of! Please contact us at the Foundation, and we will help you!
