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.”

Legacy Giving makes saying, "thank you" last longer than a lifetime; it is remembering your community in a way that it will remember you.

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. This allows them to continue their support for a charity that has touched them or a loved one.

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.

Why do people leave a Legacy Gift in their Will?

People choose to leave a Legacy Gift for a variety of reasons. For some it is a way to ensure their loved ones’ memory lives on, for many it is a way to ensure their favourite charity is able to continue its important work for future generations, and for others it is a way to facilitate tax saving strategies for their estate.
