Legacy Giving

Do you wish you could make a significant gift to support the animals at the Toronto Humane Society? By making a planned gift, such as a bequest in your will, you can help the animals without affecting your current income.

We are always looking for new ways to help more animals as well as expand on our current programs, and legacy gifts allow the Toronto Humane Society to help animals today, and to plan for tomorrow.

Making A Legacy Gift

Your legacy is a footprint you will leave behind...through a planned gift to the Toronto Humane Society, you can continue to touch the hearts of animals in need, into the future.

By making a legacy gift, such as a bequest in your will, you can help the animals without affecting your current income. Apart from a gift in your will, there are a few other ways to leave a legacy gift, which include adding the Toronto Humane Society as a beneficiary of your Life Insurance, RRSP, RRIF or Securities - whichever option you choose, you can feel good that your gift will be helping mistreated, abandoned and neglected animals.

Getting Started

The first step is planning and you may wish to work with a lawyer and or financial advisor to develop an estate plan to ensure your wishes are carried out as intended. If you have an existing will, it can be updated and changed at any time to reflect your current wishes and plans.

You can also prepare your will today using our lawyer approved and simple step-by-step online service!
