About Being A Member

  1. An easy and effective way to give to your community. You can belong to the Foundation for as little as $200 per year and have the potential of giving up to $5,000 once every 3 years to any one charity in your community. You can sponsor only one registered Canadian charity per year, but you can sponsor a different charity every year!
  2. A tax-deductible contribution. An official Canadian tax receipt is issued for the full amount of the annual donation.
  3. An effective way to increase your industry profile. Recognition of members is made in the MDRT Foundation Canada Newsletter, at the MDRT Annual Meeting and on the web site: Foundation Members
  4. An opportunity to increase your public profile. If a member sponsors a charity which receives a grant, the member’s local media will cover the story. Media coverage is easier to achieve for this type of donation than for individual gifts.
  5. A meaningful way to honor friends, loved ones and professional contacts. Contributions toward a member’s total pledge can be made through our Tribute Program on special occasions; birthdays, weddings, attaining professional designations, achieving MDRT status and other happy events. Contributions can also be made to honor the memory of clients or associates. All Tribute contributions are acknowledged by a tasteful card sent by the Foundation.
  6. An excellent way to maximize the power of your donated dollars. Some companies, such as Sun Life, have a Matching Gift Program. In addition to the member’s annual personal donation, the company’s contribution is also applied to the member’s pledge.
  7. An opportunity to maximize the effectiveness of your speaking engagements. Many Foundation members who share their expertise with others by speaking to groups choose to direct their honorariums to the Foundation (and receive credit on their pledges) through our Steward Program. These contributions are also tax deductible.
  8. Through our Gift of Life Insurance Program, an opportunity for you to support worthy Canadian charities through the product you sell and service – life insurance. The Foundation’s support is increasingly sought by community organizations across the country. Your participation will touch the lives of so many people. Please contact the office to receive a membership package soon!
