Codicils and Amendments

If you don’t want to rewrite your existing Will, you can still support JDRF Canada’s work by making a bequest using a codicil to your Will or an amendment to your trust. Usually the cost of adding a codicil or an amendment is significantly lower than writing a new will or trust.
 

All donors are encouraged to seek independent financial and legal counsel when executing wills, trusts, contracts and other agreements.

Independent Counsel

JDRF Canada will provide you with information and assistance to make a bequest in your Will. However, the ultimate responsibility regarding evaluations, tax deductibility, and/or similar legal local, provincial or federal compliance issues rests with you and/or your counsel.
 

Recognizing Your Gift

If you choose to inform us of your bequest, we will welcome you to our Beta Society and thank you for your generous gift.

The Beta Society honours visionary individuals who have made a lasting commitment to JDRF to help provide present and future financial support needed for T1D research.
