Legacy Giving

Legacy giving is a generous and powerful way to ensure that your relationship with CAAIF continues in perpetuity.

A legacy gift can also lower, or even eliminate, estate taxes.

A few of the many options available to you include:

  • Bequeathing cash, publicly listed securities or other assets in your will

  • Designating CAAIF as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, RRSP, RRIF or Charitable Insured Annuity

  • Creating a Charitable Remainder Trust or a Donor-Advised Fund

We recommend consulting a licensed financial advisor, estate planner or lawyer to advise you on the bequest best suited to your circumstances.

The CAAIF team is happy to discuss these and other possibilities with you. Please contact Andrea Waserman at 647-334-2763 or for further information.

By including CAAIF in your estate planning, you can enable groundbreaking Canadian research in allergy, asthma and immunology for years to come.

Corporate Sponsorship

The prevalence of allergy and asthma in Canada is among the highest in the world, yet these diseases receive a disproportionately modest amount of research support . This gap represents a huge opportunity for the right corporate partner. 

Partnerships have always been integral to the success of CAAIF. Without them, just a fraction of the research that is supported each year would be undertaken.

With over 50% of Canadian families being affected directly or indirectly by food allergies, it’s likely that some of your employees would be grateful for your support of research in this area.

There are a number of ways for organizations of all sizes to join us in funding life-saving research in asthma, allergies and related immune diseases. Whether you are interested in creating a workplace team for our Walk/Run or sponsoring the Annual Gala and Auction, or creating an employee matching program, corporate partnerships can help you connect, engage and inspire your employees and customers, while boosting morale and productivity.

Community Fundraisers

Awareness and fundraising campaigns are crucial in creating a more understanding environment and ultimately finding a cure for allergies. CAAIF is happy to help you create fundraising pages, assist with marketing, and provide tax receipts to your donors. All monies received from your campaign will go directly towards supporting the discovery efforts of Canadian researchers.

Establishing a Memorial Award or Fund

For those interested in establishing a fund that would issue awards in the name of a loved one, esteemed colleague or other special person in your life, CAAIF will develop a named award for research or capacity building in their honour. 

CAAIF can also develop a memorial fund as a significant and meaningful way to honour a loved one. By setting up a memorial fund and encouraging your friends and family to make a donation, you are helping CAAIF fund life-saving research so that others don’t have to suffer the loss of a loved one.

To explore the opportunity to provide a memorial gift that would create a named ward or fund, please contact the office at 647-334-2763.
