Your legacy can support a future where wildlife and wild spaces can once again thrive. By creating a planned gift, like a gift in your Will, you’ll help fund essential programs, research and education that can help change the futures of so many animals facing extinction.

How can I make a planned gift?

Planned gifts can be tailored to your personal and financial circumstances. A growing number of Canadians are realizing the benefits of giving through methods such as:

  • Charitable Bequests in a Will
  • Gifts of life insurance policies
  • Charitable gift annuities
  • Charitable remainder trusts

Planned gifts allow you to:

  • Gain valuable credits on your final estate income tax return;
  • Enjoy current tax savings and secure a lifetime income for yourself and/or your spouse;
  • Establish a memorial fund in the name of a loved one;
  • Provide a significant legacy with a small current contribution;
  • Leave something truly meaningful for people to remember you by.
