With Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Canada to help provide emergency medical care for people who need it most.
Willfora is thrilled to announce our partnership with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), who work to respond to humanitarian crises around the world, providing emergency care to people who need it most. We’re proud to be supporting this emergency humanitarian organization in their work to provide medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters or exclusion from healthcare. We could not be more excited to continue helping MSF fund care through their 65,000 staff in more than 70 countries.
Leaving a legacy through MSF
Legacy gifts are a powerful way to create change and carry on a legacy of hope for a better world even after your lifetime. Legacy gifts can be left through a fixed amount called a cash or specific gift, or as a portion of your estate called a residual gift. Legacy gifts are an important source of funding at MSF. You can ensure your own legacy will support MSF’s emergency medical work and recognize the right to dignity of people caught in crisis in the years to come. By planning your estate today, you can provide care for others in life-threatening situations tomorrow.
How can legacy gifts help MSF and similar organizations?
A study by the Canadian Association of Gift Planners (CAGP) found that only about 5% of Canadians currently leave a gift to charity in their Will, but just a 3.5% increase in that number will provide an additional $40 billion to Canadian charities. Your support for MSF will help provide urgently needed care, whenever and wherever it’s needed most. Leaving a legacy gift as part of that support means you will ensure MSF teams can continue to support people facing crises and save lives in the years to come.
How can you leave a legacy with MSF?
Since Willfora is a free service made possible with the support of charities like MSF, we hope you will consider supporting a charity of your choosing with a gift in your Will.
You can leave a legacy through MSF in two ways. The easiest place to start and learn more about the impact of legacy gifts is on their Planned Giving page. Once you’re ready to create your free Will, you can get started here.
If you’ve already started creating a Will with Willfora, you can find MSF simply by searching for them in the dropdown menu on the “Leave a Legacy” section of your free Will.
We also encourage you to share your intentions with the charities you’ve chosen to leave a legacy gift through. By doing this, charities can thank you for your gift and plan better for the future.
