Hamilton Conservation Foundation has joined with more than 80 charities, financial advisors and legal services from across the Hamilton-Oakville-Niagara Region to show Canadians the power they have to create positive change through a gift in their Will to charity. Will Power™ is a public education effort aimed at empowering more Canadians to leave a charitable gift in their Will, which could raise as much as $40 billion dollars to advance the causes Canadians care about. Imagine the impact we could all make!
Wills are more than a legal means to distribute your personal assets; they are powerful tools for social change. And it’s not an either/or proposition – you can leave a gift in your Will to charity while still taking care of those you love.
The gift you make in your will can fund a specific program area or support the Foundation’s highest-priority needs at the time your gift comes to fruition. This can include acquiring, protecting, and restoring natural areas; connecting future generations with nature and educating them about the importance of conservation; or maintaining and improving the trails that provide public access to our area’s most spectacular natural spaces, all tasks that are not funded by government funds.
Regardless of the size of your legacy gift, it can be made as an outright gift for immediate impact, or endowed to allow for annual contributions. We welcome an opportunity to discuss the many ways you can leave a legacy and encourage you to contact us to learn how your future gift will make a difference at Hamilton Conservation Foundation.
