Gift in Your Will
For Environment. For Education. For Ever.
CBEEN is partnering with the Will Power campaign, an initiative that is bringing together more than 400 charities, financial advisors and lawyers from across Canada to educate Canadians on how they can leave a legacy to a cause they care about and take care of the ones they love through a gift in their Will.

The will is the cornerstone of estate planning and it is crucial that you have a legally valid one to ensure that your assets will be distributed according to your exact wishes. Gifts in a will truly reflect your values and beliefs.
Benefits to leaving a gift in your will
- You have the use of your assets during your lifetime.
- A bequest is a tax-effective way to leave a gift as it reduces your final estate taxes allowing you to leave a gift to conserve nature.
- You may change your will at any time.
If you already have a will, ask your legal advisor about the simple process of adding a codicil.
Have you already included a gift to CBEEN in your will? If so we would appreciate you letting us know. Informing us of your gift provides the opportunity to properly thank you, recognize your support, and include you in our annual summer Donor Nature Excursion.
