Today we are partnering with Will Power to launch a national movement to educate Canadians on the power they have to make a difference through their Wills.
Can I Really Make a Difference with My Will?
By leaving a gift to Ignatius Jesuit Centre in your Will you can make a bigger contribution to spiritual development and ecological engagement than you ever thought possible.
Many donors believe that they can’t support both their loved ones and their favourite cause with their Will. The truth is, just a small percentage of your estate left to charity can have a big impact, while still leaving the majority for loved ones. And by choosing to support your charity you can also reduce and, in some cases, even eliminate estate taxes.
Some donors think they need to be wealthy to make a gift to charity in their Will. Actually, no matter the size of your estate, you can be a part of this powerful movement for change.
The foresight and generosity of four Ignatius Jesuit Centre legacy donors these past 18 months have made it possible for this Centre to offer our accommodation wing as a pilot location for supported housing and to continue our ecological initiatives – our Old-Growth Forest Project and our community-supported farm, agricultural training and community gardens — even though we had to cancel our core revenue source – our retreats and conferencing programs. The impact of these donors’ legacy gifts has been tremendous. Yes, you can make a difference!
