After a full and hot summer, Niagara Community Foundation is gearing up for the fall. To kick things off, I am delighted to tell you that for the second year in a row, 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? Common Myths that Get in the Way of Your Will Power:
In short, yes. By leaving a gift to the Niagara Community Foundation in your Will you can make a bigger contribution than you ever thought possible to supporting the charitable sector right here in Niagara.
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. Wondering how your future gift would be used? Find out about how we use donations here.
Take a look at the free resources and tools on the Will Power website to learn about the common myths surrounding gifts in Wills, the potential tax benefits, and more.
