What will your legacy be?

Has a charity impacted your life or the life of someone you care about? You can make a difference by remembering that charity or charities in your Will.

Gifts made through Wills are vital for charities to continue their important work. In fact, many charities wouldn’t exist without them. Every gift, no matter the size, has a lasting impact on charities.

After you have provided for family and loved ones, when you choose to leave a gift to charity in your Will, you are providing financial support to benefit future generations. While realizing tax savings, you can also feel good knowing your gift will have an enormous impact for your community today and tomorrow.

Leaving a gift in your Will may be one of the most  important decisions you will ever make and it’s easier than you think...

Take some time to explore this website. Find information to get you started under the Make a Difference  tab. Should you have any questions, you are encouraged to contact your favourite charities which can be found at Choose your Charities or a  Professional Advisor.
