The Fondation Charles-Bruneau attaches great importance to planned donations, which are indispensable for planning its development, as they allow the Fondation to count on resources in the medium and long term.
In order to realize the dream cherished by Charles – “When I grow up, I will be cured!” – throughout Quebec, the Fondation needs support today so that it can better plan its future.
A planned donation is a form of charitable donation, and it is an integral part of sound financial and estate planning. It consists of giving part of the assets accumulated in the course of your lifetime, while alive or at the time of your death, based on your personal, family or fiscal situation.
Message from Pierre Bruneau
When my son was diagnosed in 1979, children were given a 35% chance of beating cancer. Today, thanks to investments in research, that figure has risen to 80 %. After all these years serving as spokesman for the Fondation, I continue to believe that one day, all children with cancer will fulfil the dream cherished by Charles: “When I grow up, I will be cured!” will become a reality. We must continue to support research, therefore, as well as improve the day-to-day lives of children with cancer. A planned donation is a particularly interesting way to make a significant gesture. It is important for me to ensure the continuity of this cause which I hold dear. I find comfort in the knowledge that people are prepared to support the Fondation in the long term – and that support lets me see a future for children with cancer.
