Willfora is thrilled to announce our partnership with Nature Canada, one of the oldest national nature conservation charities in Canada. We are so proud to be supporting this charity on their mission to protect nature and wildlife in Canada for years to come. For over 80+ years, Nature Canada has helped protect over 110 million acres of parks and wildlife areas, and we’re excited to join them to secure legacy gifts that will ensure the continued protection of wildlands and wildlife!
Leaving a legacy with Nature Canada
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 gift or as a portion of your estate called a residual gift. Nature Canada relies on legacy gifts to contribute to the future of their conservation work - helping them protect endangered species and Canada’s habitats for future generations.
How can legacy gifts help Nature Canada 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. Since Willfora launched, we’re proud to announce that we’ve raised nearly $50 million in future gifts, and your legacy gift will ensure that Nature Canada continues to protect Canada’s parks and wildlife. Charities love to plan for the future and legacy gifts are an important way for them to predictably grow and provide a greater impact for their cause.
How can you leave a legacy with Nature Canada?
Since Willfora is a free service made possible by the support of charities like Nature Canada, we hope you will consider supporting a charity of your choosing with a gift in your Will.
You can leave a legacy with Nature Canada through two ways. The easiest place to start and learn more about the impact of legacy gifts is on their Legacy 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 Nature Canada simply by searching for them in the dropdown menu on the “Leave a Legacy” section of your free Will.
We also encourage Legacy donors to opt in to sharing their gift with the charities they’ve chosen to leave a legacy with, since it helps provide them with meaningful information to plan for a more predictable future.
