Why Give


Legacy giving makes saying thank you last longer than a lifetime, it is remembering your community in a way that it will remember you. We believe as Margaret Mead said “Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.

The reasons for leaving a Legacy Gift can be varied, but some include:

  • A Legacy Gift allows the donor to have full control of their finances and assets during their lifetime, and make a charitable gift through their estate to continue their support for a charity that they feel is important to them;
  • The donor can make a Legacy Gift to thank a charity for work that was done, and to ensure the continuation of this work for years to come;
  • A Legacy Gift can alleviate tax burdens on family members and a donor’s estate;
  • A Legacy Gift can provide an opportunity for a donor to be recognized and long remembered for their life and their impact on their community.

A Legacy Gift can be used to pay tribute or recognition to a loved one.


Talk with your family and friends about your Will. It is highly recommended that every donor speak to one or more professional advisors before making a Legacy Gift. Contact the charity to let them know of your gift so that they can demonstrate their appreciation in your lifetime.
