Estate Planning and Legacy Giving
Creating Your Legacy of Love, Hope and Belonging
When creating or updating your will, once you’ve looked after your loved ones, including a gift to Our Place Society would create a heartfelt legacy of love for those we serve.
A gift in your will, also known as a bequest, is paid out through your estate – so you don’t have to give up any of your income or savings during your lifetime. And, it will generate a charitable tax receipt which can reduce income tax payable by your estate.
And, if you choose to let us know about your future gift, you could join our Legacy of Love Circle.
Leaving a gift to Our Place Society in your will is an important decision requiring careful consideration. You can read how we will respect your decision (and privacy) both now and in the future in this document: Our Place Legacy Charter.
Your legacy gift can honour a loved one (here’s a story about an Our Place donor who did just that), or recognize your own life journey by making a compassionate commitment to care for others in our community – after you’re gone.
