Planned giving

A planned or legacy gift is a gift you commit to today that is realized in the future. Legacy gifts are easy to arrange and can offer many attractive benefits such as:

  • Fulfilling your charitable goals and achieving the best tax savings possible
  • Strengthening the long-term financial security of the OMF, and providing support for future medical professionals
  • Allowing you to make a larger contribution through your estate than you might not have otherwise been able to give in your lifetime

Other ways to give

  • Wills and bequests
  • Life insurance
  • RRSPs and RRIFs
  • Charitable trusts
  • Property
  • Securities

We recommend working directly with your lawyer or financial adviser to arrange a bequest. Please contact us if you would like an OMF representative to participate in setting up a bequest.

“Bursaries such as this one truly touch the lives of all recipients. I hope that this bursary continues to receive engagement and support years into the future. In addition, I hope we see increasing numbers of Black medical students in future cohorts that will thus be eligible to apply for such support.”  – 2020-2021 named bursary recipient
