For three decades, Operation Smile has been dedicated to healing children’s smiles. Children who are often hidden away, unable to eat or speak properly, or never attend school. Children who represent the future of their communities. The future of our world.
Since the very beginning, we have relied on the generosity and goodwill of others to help us fulfill our mission. Through sound fiscal management and a clear growth strategy, we have been able to maximize the benefit of every gift we receive to bring new hope and new lives to children in need. Today, hundreds of thousands of volunteers and supporters share our compassion and commitment.
The impact of our work truly creates a ripple effect and helps leave a legacy that lives well beyond our medical missions. By making a planned gift to Operation Smile, you too will create a legacy — a Legacy of Smiles that will have a lasting impact on you, your family, and children we help every day.
Operation Smile offers a variety of easy and effective ways for you to make a planned gift that will help us heal more children’s smiles and transform lives around the world. We offer options that can increase your giving potential and return benefits to you and your family.
Let us help you design a planned giving strategy that meets your individual financial needs, including ways to protect your assets or continue to pay you income in your lifetime.

At Operation Smile Canada, we believe that all children deserve to live their lives with dignity. And for those suffering from cleft lip, cleft palate, or other facial deformities, dignity begins with a smile. Using our global network of credentialed medical volunteers, in as little as 45 minutes, a simple surgery repairs these smiles.
The impact of our work truly creates a ripple effect and helps leave a legacy that lives well beyond our medical missions. By making a planned gift to Operation Smile Canada, you too will create a legacy — a Legacy of Smiles that will have a lasting impact on you, your family, and the children we help together.
Operation Smile Canada Foundation (OSCF) has practical giving options that allow you to transform the lives of children without risking your financial security. By using your financial assets in the most cost-effective way, it is possible to build on your legacy and support a worthwhile cause that touches your heart.
Here are some planned giving options for you to consider. We strongly encourage you to consult with your financial advisor and/or lawyer before committing to any of these gift options. When you are ready, contact Dorothy Tam, CFRE, Director, Major & Planned Gifts at 905-470-6861 or email Dorothy.Tam@operationsmile.org.
Sometimes called a bequest, a gift by will is an easy way to contribute to the cause you supported in life and leave a lasting legacy for children born with cleft lip and cleft palate. This can include cash, securities, and other assets.
Life insurance is an affordable method of giving a significant future gift by making modest contributions today. Depending on the structure of your gift, you can receive tax relief annually during life or at death for the full value of the gift.
One of the most powerful ways to establish your legacy is to create an endowment fund through a substantial gift to OSCF. An endowment fund can be established in your name or the name of someone you love.
Donating stocks, bonds, or shares in mutual funds can be an effective way to make a significant gift that will impact the lives of children waiting for surgery.
A Charitable Gift Plus Annuity is a “life income” gift: it combines payments to you for life with a gift to charity. This gift structure allows you to make an immediate difference to children around the world, but also enjoy the annual assurance of guaranteed income payments to do the things you want — like take a vacation or provide income for retirement.
Today’s consumers expect corporations to provide quality products at fair prices and to give back to the greater community. A charitable gift to OSCF can speak to the hearts of your customers.
Many companies utilize the tax benefits of an employee giving program. Supporting your employees’ charitable priorities can improve morale and productivity.
