What Is LEAVE A LEGACY™

Almost everyone has a favourite charity. The reasons why a charity is close to your heart are as varied as the charities themselves. LEAVE A LEGACY™ is a public awareness campaign that promotes the benefits of leaving a bequest in your will to help your favourite charitable organization.

The LEAVE A LEGACY™ program provides information on how you can support charities through estate planning. This program is a partnership between registered charities, professional advisors, the media and the public. Leave a Legacy has recently been adopted as the national program of the Canadian Association of Gift Planners (CAGP™).

The aim of LEAVE A LEGACY™ is two-fold:

  1. Ensure every adult in Canada has an up-to-date will; and
  2. Encourage individuals to leave a gift for their favourite registered charity in their will.

The vision of LEAVE A LEGACY™ is to ensure every Nova Scotian is aware of the personal and financial benefits of leaving a gift for their charities of choice in their will. Preparing an estate plan that includes a charitable gift provides tremendous personal satisfaction and significant tax benefits for donors.

Everyone benefits from LEAVE A LEGACY™ – the individual, the family and the community. Whatever your reasons, your gift makes a difference!
