• A legacy of possibility

    After providing for your loved ones, a bequest to Taralye provides a gift of empowerment for children who are deaf or hearing impaired that is life-long — the same education and employment opportunities as hearing children.

    Naming Taralye in your will is a simple yet incredibly profound act of generosity.

    Different ways you can support Taralye

    Leaving a gift in your will can be done in a number of ways. The actual gift take may take many forms, including:

    • a specific dollar amount
    • a  specific percentage of your Estate
    • the residual of your estate or a percentage of the residual (after your other bequests have been distributed)
    • real estate, shares, art and/or other capital assets
    • life insurance policies or annuities


    All bequests, whether large or small, will make a difference. You can include Taralye in your will in the following ways:

    • general purpose bequest to be used in an area of most need at the time
    • specific purpose bequest that decides which service or program receives your support and how
    • endowment fund, named in your honour, where the capital value of your bequest is invested and the interest it earns is used for specific or general purposes

    Let us know when you have included Taralye in your will so we can thank you in your lifetime.
