LEAVE A LEGACY™ is a nationally recognized program to raise awareness of the importance of thoughtful, well-planned, tax-preferred gifts and their impact on the quality of life for everyone in our communities. As a public awareness program, we provide a unified message to enhance knowledge of and interest in estate and legacy planning, with the goal of increasing the number of planned gifts to charitable organizations in the province.

LEAVE A LEGACY™ Nova Scotia is promoted through volunteer efforts and through the support of charities, non-profits, financial and legal advisors. LEAVE A LEGACY™ marketing opportunities are now the sole responsibility of the Canadian Association of Gift Planners  (CAGP-ACPDP™) provincial chapters.

As a LEAVE A LEGACY partner, your organization will be recognized in our annual LEAVE A LEGACY™ magazine distributed throughout the province through the Chronicle Herald. In addition, your organization will have a listing on the LEAVE A LEGACY™ NS website. New marketing opportunities are currently being explored, including social media, PSAs and alternate advertising opportunities such as the Senior Supplement and Cineplex pre-show ads which were included in the 2015-16 partner marketing campaign.

LEAVE A LEGACY™ Nova Scotia strives to provide a valuable source of information to the general public on giving options with the assistance of our valued partners. Our goal is to ensure every Nova Scotian is aware of the personal and financial benefits of arranging a gift to their charity of choice.
