HCCEF Joins Charities and Advisors to Change Charitable Giving

Published September 2, 2020

HCCEF JOINS EFFORT TO INSPIRE CANADIANS TO THINK DIFFERENTLY ABOUT CHARITABLE GIVING 

HCCEF has joined with more than 80 charities, financial advisors and legal services from across the Hamilton-Oakville-Niagara Region to show Canadians the power they have to create positive change through a gift in their Will to charity. Will Power™ is a public education effort aimed at empowering more Canadians to leave a charitable gift in their Will, which could raise as much as $40 billion dollars to advance the causes Canadians care about. Imagine the impact we could all make!

We at HCCEF know that Canadians are committed to helping. We see this every day through our work helping students overcome financial barriers to learning, and in conversation with our dedicated network of volunteers and donors. We believe it is important that more Canadians are aware that a charitable gift in a Will is another way to make a big difference.

Wills are not just a legal means to distribute your personal assets; they are powerful tools for social change. And it’s not an either/or proposition – you can leave a gift in your Will to charity while still taking care of those you love.

The Will Power™ campaign has launched a website designed to make it easier for Canadians to plan their legacy giving. Here you can calculate the impact of your legacy gift while still taking care of loved ones, and connect with advisors to take your next steps.

As always, we encourage you to contact us to learn how your future gift will make a difference at HCCEF.
