Legacy Giving Thunder Bay was formed by local charities who strongly believes that together, each organization plays a role in building a stronger community.
With this in mind, the group collaborated to promote and educate our community and region on what Legacy Giving is and to encourage individuals to include a gift to a Charity in their Will.
