Bequest and Estate Plan Gifts

A bequest is a gift from your estate—a transfer of cash, securities, or other property made through your estate plans. You can make a bequest to CiDrep SickKids by including language in your will or living trust leaving a portion of your estate to the foundation, or by designating CiDrep SickKids Foundation as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy.

Supporting CiDrep SickKids mission with a bequest from your estate will help sustain and strengthen the foundation in years to come. Some of the advantages of creating a bequest include:

  • A bequest costs nothing now, yet gives you the satisfaction of knowing you have provided for sick children in the future
  • You retain control of and use of your assets during your lifetime
  • You may modify your bequest if your circumstances change
  • Gifts to CiDrep SickKids from your estate are exempt from federal estate taxes
  • If you let CiDrep SickKids know of your plans, we will be able to thank you now and recognize you as a member of our Leadership Board.


If you have included CiDrep SickKids in your estate plans, please let us know. We would like to thank you for your generosity, make sure the purpose of your gift is understood by the university, and recognize you as a member of our Board.
