Giving | Ways to Give - Bequests


Estate gifts or bequests have always been an important and valued source of funding for the Kidney Foundation.

In 2011, the Kidney Foundation of Canada established a new Legacy Giving Society to recognize and honour individuals who have included the Kidney Foundation in their estate plans.

Making a planned gift to a charity you believe in is an extremely personal decision - and one that can have tremendous impact.

“We simply have to ensure that advances continue. That is why I intend to include The Kidney Foundation of Canada in my Will. My bequest is a simple, yet immensely powerful way to extend my life’s work far beyond my own career.”
John B. Dossetor, OC, BM BCh (Oxon:), FRCPC, Ph D. (McGill)
Professor Emeritus (Medicine/Bioethics, U/Alberta) and Founding member of The Kidney Foundation’s Legacy Giving Society
