A different way of ensuring the availability of our services:
Did you know that you can enjoy attractive tax benefits while still supporting the Alzheimer Society of Montreal? This is one significant advantage of planned giving.
Planned giving can be:
A major donation of stocks or other assets made now, but that takes effect at a later date.
Before making a planned gift, you should consult a financial planner, lawyer, notary or your accountant.
Planned gifts provide different tax advantages according to the type of gift made, which can be, for example:
- Bequests in a will
- Life insurance policy

“While I can, I am planning a bequest to the Alzheimer Society of Montreal”
“Finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, as well as methods of prevention and ways to improve treatment is of paramount importance.
That’s why I decided to take action while I can. I have added a clause to my will, only about 20 words long, naming the Alzheimer Society of Montreal as the beneficiary of a bequest after I pass away.”
Do you work in the Public Service or for a federal or provincial agency or department?
Are you and your coworkers interested in preventative health care? You are, of course, mindful of the health of your children, but are you also concerned about the health of your parents who are less and less autonomous?
Each fall, HealthPartners conducts its yearly Entraide campaign. This united fundraising effort involves 16 national charitable organizations in the health care sector, notably the Federation of Quebec Alzheimer Societies (FQAS) of which the Alzheimer Society of Montreal is a member.
The success of the HealthPartners campaign depends in no small part on its volunteer spokespeople who generously give of their time to spearhead the initiative. In only a few minutes, they deliver touching accounts of their experiences to small groups of employees in different work environments.
Ron Hughes, Alzheimer Society of Montreal ambassador
Ron Hughes has been part of this team of a dozen ambassadors for several years due to his knowledge of the disease, his interpersonal skills and his natural public speaking ability.
During a recent meeting with twenty Service Canada employees at the Guy-Favreau Complex, Ron was proud to explain the difference that a donation or simple payroll deduction can make to people living with dementia and their families. Whether over 26 or 52 pay periods, even a small payroll deduction becomes a considerable donation at the end of the year and, what’s more, it cuts down on administrative costs.
Ron is also concerned about the social cost of the Alzheimer boom forecast a generation hence. It is a challenge to raise public awareness about the disease, especially now that it affects more and more individuals in the workforce.
