Leave a Legacy

The Mosaic Legacy Circle helps to create a stronger Canada and a more peaceful world for future generations to come. If you are considering arranging a legacy gift to the Mosaic Institute, the following provides a brief overview on how to do this.

What is a legacy gift?

A legacy gift is a gift you plan now that will benefit the Mosaic Institute in the future. Legacy gifts are not just for the wealthy or the elderly. Legacy gifts are an incredible way to boost your capacity to support charities of choice because they allow you to potentially contribute more than at any other time in your life.

The two most popular legacy options are setting up a gift in your will (a bequest) and life insurance. Legacy gifts can be in any amount and can also take the form of real estate, appreciated securities, retirement plans, art or trusts.

When arranging a gift to the Mosaic Institute in your will, the most important thing is to use our proper legal name: The Mosaic Institute for Harnessing Diversity and our charitable registration number: 85627-9617-RR0001.

We are grateful for unrestricted gifts that will support the Institute’s work across Canada.

We recommend that you discuss these matters with your legal counsel but if you would like more information about how your Legacy gift will make an impact for the Mosaic Institute, please contact:
