Making a gift to last forever
If you’d like to improve the environment for long-term, you can. By making a gift through your will, you can help plant lots of trees, teach hundreds of children about the environment or help protect important natural lands.
As part of your decision to leave a gift in your will to Conservation Halton Foundation, you’ll likely want to discuss opportunities with your family and your financial advisor.
Once you’re happy that you’ve taken care of your family and saved some taxes on your estate, there are some easy ways to add a charitable gift in your will.
The easiest way to do this is to add a simple bequest. Actually, over 90% of the gifts in wills made to charities in Canada are done this way.
Here is a sample of some language that you can review with your family and financial advisors if you’d like to leave a gift to the Conservation Halton Foundation:
I give, devise and bequeath to the Conservation Halton Foundation (Business Number 1331 43099 RR0001) the sum of $________ to be used for any purpose(s) approved by the Board of Directors of the Conservation Halton Foundation.
What could you achieve with your gift? An undesignated gift of $20,000 in your will could help:
Buy 4 acres of important forest habitat
An endowed gift of $20,000 would generate annual income of about $900 per year. Over the next 50 years, your gift could help:
Buy 9 acres of important forest habitat
