Create Your Legacy of Love

by leaving a gift in your will

Would you like to extend your compassion and amplify your ability to help others in the future? Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

As well as taking care of your loved ones, please consider a gift in your will to help vulnerable community members at Our Place Society. Your thoughtfulness will make a real difference to those experiencing poverty, homelessness, physical and mental health issues, and addictions. The meals, shelter, and services that you provide will help Our Place family members most in need of a hand up. We would be honored to be part of your beautiful legacy of love.

A gift in your will, known as a bequest, is paid out through your estate. You won’t have to give up any of your income or savings during your lifetime. The charitable tax receipt issued to your estate will help save, or could even eliminate, income tax that would otherwise be payable. Our legal name is Our Place Society, and the charitable registration number is 82709 8344 RR0001. Please click the buttons below for more information. We suggest that you share this with your legal and financial advisors, and please let us know if you or they would like any further information whatsoever.

Our Place Society cannot begin to thank its legacy donors enough for the vital role that they play in ensuring that the community’s greatest needs are met. We encourage you to let us know your intentions, so that we can thank you and invite you to join Our Place Society’s Legacy of Love group — a group of supporters who share your commitment to the present and future work of Our Place Society.
