Bequests and Endowments

We all make plans for our estate, to ensure that those we love are taken care of after we are gone. I think many of us also think about our potential to make an impact, even after we are gone. If you are passionate about dermatology research, and advancing the skin health of Canadian patients for generations to come, you might consider leaving a gift to CDF in your Will.
