Gifts That Cost You Nothing Now
Gifts in a Will or by beneficiary nomination are two easy ways to provide comprehensive support for those facing multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions for years to come — and they don’t cost anything now.
If you have already included a gift in your estate plans to benefit the future of MS Plus, be sure to let us know so that we may best honour your wishes.
A gift in your Will is one of the easiest ways to create your legacy and offers the following benefits:
Your gift will create your legacy of love for those living with neurological conditions like MS.
You can alter your gift or change your mind at any time and for any reason.
Costs you nothing now to give in this way.
Five simple, “no-cost-now” ways to give in your Will
A residual gift in a Will leaves MS Plus the remainder of your estate after other gifts, debts and expenses have been fulfilled.
A specific gift in a Will leaves MS Plus a specific dollar amount or stated percentage of your estate or a specific gift in kind, such as collections, art, books and jewelry.
Family first gift
A family first gift in a Will leaves MS Plus a stated share of your estate, only if a spouse, family member, or other beneficiary does not survive you.
Contingent property-use gift
A contingent property-use gift in a Will allows for a person to continue to reside in the property for a set period of time or under certain conditions. This is also known as a right to occupy.
Life interest gift
A life interest gift in a Will allows for a spouse or other person to use your real estate property and receive any or all income derived from it during their lifetime. When they pass, the title in the real estate property can then be given to MS Plus.
Gifts by Beneficiary Nomination
It’s easy to put your superannuation benefit and insurance entitlements into your Will and instruct your Trustee to act on your wishes to direct to us in helping those facing MS live life to the fullest — and it costs you nothing now.
By naming MS Plus as a beneficiary of these benefits, you can power our mission for years to come and establish your personal legacy of compassion for people living with neurological conditions.
Potential benefits of gifts by beneficiary nomination:
Help reduce tax and ensure your wishes are honoured
Change your beneficiaries at any time
No cost to you now to give
Create your legacy with MS Plus
Types of Gifts
Superannuation fund residuals
Simply instruct your Superannuation Trustee to act on your wishes to ensure your superannuation is directed to us.
You can name MS Plus as a beneficiary of all or a portion of your insurance plan. With this gift arrangement, MS Plus will receive the proceeds of your plan after your lifetime. You can change your beneficiary at any time and may reduce your taxes.
Private ancillary fund residuals
A private ancillary fund is a charitable trust that allows you to create your own personalised giving program. It is a private fund through which you make tax-deductible donations to support MS Plus, rather than making one-off donations. The donations you make are invested, managed, and distributed to support people with multiple sclerosis for years to come. The final distribution of contributions remaining in your private ancillary fund is governed by the contract you completed when you created your fund. We hope you will consider naming MS Plus as the successor for a portion of the account value, leaving the remaining portion for your heirs to continue your philanthropic legacy.
