Plan for the Future

Planned gifts to The Society for Manitobans with Disabilities Foundation Inc. (SMD Foundation) are about planning for the future: your future and the future of individuals with disabilities.

The incidence of disability is increasing as more children are being born with multiple disabilities, our population is aging and disabling accidents in the home and at work continue to occur. Currently, one in six Manitobans – over 200,000 people – have one or more disabilities.

Make A Significant Impact

SMD Foundation/Easter Seals™ Manitoba exist to generate contributions and foster philanthropy to support programs, services and information resources for our community to access.

Making a planned gift to SMD Foundation is a flexible and simple way to combine philanthropy with financial planning. Your gift will have a significant impact for individuals with disabilities. Planned gifts may include gifts of bequests, retirement funds, stocks and securities, gifts-in-kind, charitable remainder trusts, gifts of residual interest, annuities and life insurance.

Your Legacy

SMD Foundation/Easter Seals™ Manitoba is committed to working with you, your family and your advisors to ensure that your philanthropic and financial goals are met. After all, your legacy is not just a reflection of the past, but a path for the future – one capable of making a true difference in the world.
