Benefits for Charities
The Canadian Free Wills Network is a unique service like no other in Canada, targeted to reach your warmest legacy supporters. As a dedicated fundraiser, you will appreciate an astounding statistic. We know that the ‘natural’ occurrence of leaving gifts in Wills in Canada is about 7%. But if they are prompted to consider a legacy at the crucial moment – when they’re writing their Will – that proportion multiplies up to sevenfold.
