Calculating the Potential of Your Philanthropic Legacy

We will need some information to develop a profile of your estate. All data fields require an entry and all entries should be in Canadian dollars. Some of the questions may not be applicable to your circumstances and in those cases you must enter zero into the data box. This data is not kept by JCFC and will disappear at the end of the session unless you choose to print or save a copy for your records.
