Welcome to LEAVE A LEGACY™ Nova Scotia


You have a cause close to your heart but how can you support your favourite charity not only today, but in the future?

LEAVE A LEGACY™ Nova Scotia promotes the importance and financial benefits of leaving a charitable gift in your will to provide future support to the causes that mean the most to you.

LEAVE A LEGACY™ is a public awareness initiative that aims to bring together professionals and planners to help people become knowledgeable about the many benefits of leaving a gift to a charity through their estate planning process.

Leave Your Legacy

When choosing to leave a gift in your will, you are providing critical financial support to benefit future generations. While realizing tax savings, you can also feel good knowing your gift will have an enormous impact on your community today and tomorrow. Leaving a gift in your will may be one of the most fulfilling decisions you will ever make and it’s easier than you think.

The aim of LEAVE A LEGACY™ is two-fold:

Ensure every adult in Canada has an up-to-date will

Encourage individuals to leave a gift for their favourite registered charity in their will.

The vision of LEAVE A LEGACY™ Nova Scotia is to ensure every Nova Scotian is aware of the personal and financial benefits of leaving a gift for their charities of choice in their will. Preparing an estate plan that includes a charitable gift provides tremendous personal satisfaction and significant tax benefits for donors.

Everyone benefits from LEAVE A LEGACY™ – the individual, the family and the community. Whatever your reasons, your gift makes a difference!
