By leaving a legacy gift to UNICEF Canada, of any size, you can help us build a better world, for every child.
THE IMPORTANCE OF LEGACY GIVING
Legacy gifts, whether through a Will, or through other options, are vital to UNICEF’s life-saving work for children. They provide secure funds that allow us to expand and develop our long-term programs with confidence. Whatever the size of your legacy gift, it will help us reach children in more than 190 countries with vaccines, clean water, education, therapeutic food and more.
You can rest assured that your legacy gift to UNICEF Canada will be used effectively and efficiently to support the essential needs of children around the world. As part of the United Nations family, we work with governments and partners to ensure that funding decisions are data-driven, results-oriented, scalable, and are supported by the communities where we work.
Together, with your legacy gift, we will ensure a profound and lasting impact on children’s lives and for future generations to come.
HOW TO LEAVE A LEGACY GIFT IN YOUR WILL
Leaving a gift in your Will (a bequest) to UNICEF Canada is easy. We have developed a free legacy giving guide to share more information to help you consider this decision in your own time. Our free guide also includes information on how to update your Will, and how your gift will help make a better world, for every child.
WHAT IF I ALREADY HAVE A WILL?
If you have already written a Will, it is a simple process to revise it to include a legacy bequest to UNICEF Canada. Depending on the changes that you would like to make, it may be possible to use a codicil to make your amendments. It is advised that you speak to your lawyer about the best course of action to take.
