Your Will Can Make a Difference

Dear supporters,
We are delighted to tell you that we have partnered with Will Power, a national movement to educate Canadians on the power they have to make a difference through their Wills.
Can I Really Make a Difference with My Will?
In short, yes. By leaving a gift to Vela Canada in your Will you can make a bigger contribution than you ever thought possible.
Many donors believe that they can’t support both their loved ones and their favourite cause with their Will. The truth is, just a small percentage of your estate left to charity can have a big impact, while still leaving the majority for loved ones. Choosing to support your charity can also reduce and, in some cases, even eliminate the taxes to be paid. A win-win! 
Some donors think they need to be wealthy to make a gift to charity in their Will. Actually, no matter the size of your estate, you can be a part of this powerful movement for change.
Take a look at the free resources and tools on the Will Power website to learn about the common myths surrounding gifts in Willsthe potential tax benefits, and more.
