Make March of Dimes Canada part of your Legacy

Open up a future of possibilities with a legacy gift. Through a planned gift to March of Dimes Canada, you can leave your own mark and change lives for children and adults with physical disabilities so that they can become more indpendent and mobile.

The Benefits of Legacy Giving

  • A bequest gift is a way to do even more for people with disabilities in a cost-effective and meaningful way.

  • You can retain the use of your assets and keep your cash flow today, while making a more substantial gift than you may have been able to otherwise.

  • Your gift helps you reduce estate taxes on your final tax return, increasing inheritances to loved ones.

  • Setting up a legacy gift in your Will is very simple, and you can make changes at any time.

  Need a current Will? We can help!
An opportunity to have your Will done for free by a local lawyer. 
If you are 55 years or older and haven't made up a Will or need to update your existing Will, we can help!

March of Dimes Canada has partnered with Canadian Free Wills Network© to enable you to have your Will written or updated free of charge through a local lawyer. A vital part of March of Dimes Canada’s funding comes from gifts that generous supporters leave in their Will. We wouldn’t be able to maintain our range of programs and services without these gifts. 

Having an up to date Will gives you peace of mind. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to include a gift in your Will to March of Dimes Canada — though there’s no obligation to do so. 

FAQ about the program: 

  1. Does the charity get a copy of each Will?
    No. The only information that is sent to the charity is what you share on a confidential declaration form. 

  2. What happens if I want other legal work done?
    Canadian Free Wills Network© covers the writing or/and updating of ‘simple’ Wills as defined by the lawyer concerned. More complex Wills and other legal work can also be addressed by the lawyer.
