May is Leave a Legacy month in Canada.
Leaving a gift in your will to an organization close to your heart is an easy yet deeply profound way to create a legacy that lives on through the people your gift will serve.
Donors who support YSB through issuing a legacy gift give vital help through programs and services to youth for years to come.
You can give in many ways. You can donate cash, securities, or a percentage of your estate. Even 1% will have a lasting impact. You can also donate the residue of your estate – that is, the amount that remains once your bequests are fulfilled.
Imagine helping a struggling youth in the future get the support they need.
Imagine helping young people you are yet to even meet, completely change their lives.
It’s a powerful way to change young lives for years to come. It’s easy to do and fully in your control.
