Leaving a Legacy

A bequest is a personal gift you leave in your Will as a lasting legacy of your beliefs and values. 


Why Should I Leave a Legacy Gift?

Create a meaningful legacy – Making a legacy gift ensures that your support for the causes that are closest to your heart can continue long into the future.

Ensure Peace of Mind – Creating a Will is the only way to ensure that your loved ones are taken care of the way you intend and you may change your wishes at any time.

Convenience – A legacy gift is easy to arrange and can be made for any amount you wish.

Enjoy Tax Savings – A legacy gift offers significant tax benefits for you and your heirs.
