May is Leave a Legacy Month; a time to reflect on how you can leave a lasting impact on the causes that matter most to you.

A legacy gift is a donation to charity in your Will. While many people may not be aware of this option, legacy gifts play a crucial role in supporting charitable organizations that are local to you. When you leave a bequest, your estate receives a tax credit for the full value of the bequest, enhancing your final income tax return. This can help maximize the value of your estate for your beneficiaries. Beyond tax benefits, there are numerous other reasons to consider leaving a legacy gift.


“Leaving a gift to charity in your will is not just about financial planning; it’s about creating a lasting legacy of compassion and generosity. By including charitable giving in your estate plans, you not only ensure your values endure beyond your lifetime but also empower organizations to continue their vital work for generations to come.” – Chris Christie, Interim Executive Director

Your contribution, no matter the size, makes a difference. Together, all gifts add up to create a significant impact.
