Leave a Charitable Gift in your Will

You have more power to make a difference than you realize. By giving even a small portion of your estate to charity, you can make a significant impact in Regional Parks, and still support those you love. We’ve partnered with Will Power, a national public education campaign designed to inspire Canadians to think differently about charitable giving, and empower them to create positive change through their Wills.

3 million+ Canadians are now leaving a gift in their Will to charity. These are ordinary people using the power of their Wills to make a difference in this world.

“Ethical Wills” have surged in the past few years. Here’s why:

  1. You can make a major contribution to Regional Parks.
  2. You don’t use any money you need now.
  3. You’ll can still support loved ones in the future.

It’s pretty amazing what even 1% of your estate can do. See for yourself using Will Power’s legacy calculator.

Change the world with a charitable gift in your Will, while still supporting those you love.

Create a Legacy

You don’t have to be wealthy to create a legacy for the future of our regional parks. After you have cared for your loved ones, your gift – regardless of size – will help protect and preserve our regional parks for years to come.

Leaving a gift that helps to build a better world is the power of Legacy Giving and it is much easier than you think. Choosing what legacy you want to leave is a unique opportunity for you to express your values and to make a significant mark upon the future.

Moreover, legacy gifts have the added benefit of reducing income tax during your lifetime or through your estate. One of the simplest ways to create a powerful legacy is through a bequest in your will to Metro Vancouver Regional Parks Foundation.
