Estate Planning and Legacy Giving

Making a lasting impact.

Estate Planning

Many donors are not in a position to make a sizeable major gift to Furniture Bank during their lifetime. By adding a bequest in your Will you can leave a lasting legacy that honours your commitment to social justice and our mission to end furniture poverty.

Bequests, also known as ‘gifts by will’ or ‘testamentary gifts’, are revocable gifts made to a charitable beneficiary through your Will. They can be as simple as including a notation in your Will, or complex with conditions about how you would like your gift to be used – such as designating them to a specific project or fund.

In addition to the lasting social impact your gift will make, a bequest is also an effective way to reduce taxes on your estate after death.
