  • When a gift has been received in memory of a life past, TALC will send an acknowledgement letter and a charitable tax receipt (CanadaHelps will send a tax receipt for donations made online).  A personalized card, with a list of all who donated and the total sum of gifts will be sent to the family or next of kin. Please note that amounts of individual donations are completely confidential and will not be disclosed to the family or next of kin.

  • Life Insurance – You can assign TACL to be the beneficiary on an existing policy or set up a new one.
