You have the power to make the world a better place.
Adding a charity to your will is a powerful way to honour what’s important to you.
After family, many people choose to leave a bequest to a charity that aligns with their personal values and impacts issues they are passionate about.
Best of all, you can make a difference without losing access to your funds or assets during your lifetime.
It’s your vision and your legacy. Decide how you want to change the world – then make it happen!

How Your Gift Will Be Used
Our deep roots in our community mean that your legacy gift can help us proactively design and deliver programs that address complex care needs across Halton.
When we saw the need for more dementia care, we decided to build a new dementia care centre.
When we realized families were hurting after the death of a loved one, we introduced a bereavement support program.
Legacy gifts fuel these important and innovative steps forward.
