Bequests and other planned giving

A planned gift to the Montreal SPCA is an excellent way to honour your lifelong love of animals and to help our organization pursue its crucial mission.

There are several types of planned gifts; here are some examples:

  • Bequests (see below)
  • Securities
  • Retirement savings plans
  • Life insurance

Each of these forming of giving has specific tax benefits for you and your estate. Your advisor (notary or lawyer, accountant or financial planner) can help you choose which best suits you and prepare a will that meets your personal requirements and respects your wishes.

For more information,
please contact our major and planned gifts manager.

Bequests are one of the greatest and most sustainable ways of helping the Montreal SPCA to fulfill its mission of caring for thousands of animals in need.

Bequests are very simple to include in your will. They are a form of pre-planned giving that may reduce the tax burden on your estate. An official receipt will be issued and may help reduce the taxes payable after your death. Thanks to your generosity, our team will be able to continue going above and beyond to protect and care for animals in need.

A very tangible way to perpetuate the love you have for animals.

Every dollar counts! Whatever the amount of your bequest, it will play a decisive role in the lives of animals in need of care.


“I wish to make a bequest to the Montreal SPCA because cats have given me so much affection, comfort and love in my lifetime.”



“I have chosen to leave part of my assets to the Montreal SPCA to perpetuate all the good that animals have done me and all that they have given me.”
