Leave a Gift

Naming the Lung Association as a beneficiary in your will is a meaningful way for you to make a difference in the world beyond your lifetime.  Your gift can help fund important programs to support people who want to breathe easier. 

Getting the wording correct is important.  If you choose to leave a specific amount in your will to The Lung Association, AB & NWT, here is the wording:

“I direct my Trustees to pay or transfer the sum of $_____ to the Alberta Lung Association (and NWT) to be used for the Alberta Lung Association’s general purposes as its directors see fit.  The charitable registration number for The Alberta Lung Association is BN 13031-8041-RR0001.”

OR, if you would like to leave a portion of your estate to the Alberta Lung Association (and NWT) after all debts and specific bequests to loved ones are made, here is the wording:

“I direct my Trustees to pay or transfer all (or a stated percentage) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate to the Alberta Lung Association to be used for the Alberta Lung Association’s general purposes as its directors see fit.  The charitable registration number for The Alberta Lung Association is BN 13031-8041-RR0001.” 

There are several different ways to leave a gift to The Lung Association they are:

  • Trust gifts
  • Securities
  • Residual interest
  • Life Insurance
