Egale Planned Giving: Leave a gift through a will or estate.

Have you considered leaving behind a legacy?

Legacy gifts contribute to our vision of a Canada, and ultimately a world, without homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, and all other forms of oppression so that every person can achieve their full potential, free from hatred and bias. 

You can support 2SLGBTQI communities in Canada, and around the world, even after your lifetime, by making a gift in your Will. A bequest is a future gift that doesn’t cost you anything during your lifetime. To leave a gift to Egale Canada, you either need to create a Will, or add a simple addition to your Will – called a codicil. 

And thanks to our partnership with Willfora, experts in online Will-writing services, leaving a gift in your Will can be made easier than ever. This confidential, safe and secure FREE online tool makes it easy to create your Will from the comfort of your home in 20 minutes or less. 

A gift in your Will of even 1% after your loved ones have been looked after, will bring new momentum to our cause. This gift may ease the burden of probate fees (fees paid to the government when establishing your Will) and can also provide you with a tax benefit. 

The benefits

  • A gift in your will is an effective way to reduce estate taxes. 
  • Egale Canada will issue an official receipt for the full value of the bequest. 
  • Your gift can be made for any amount. 
  • You can choose to make changes to your Will at any time. 

Ways to leave a gift in your will

  • Leave a percentage of your estate. 
  • Leave a specific dollar amount. 
  • Leave a residual bequest – share of the remainder of your estate after other needs are met. 
  • Or, leave a contingent bequest – a share of your estate after your other beneficiaries have passed on.
