Leave a Legacy of Life

Personal & Estate Giving is a means in which you can support an organization that has made a significant difference in your life or the lives of others. It is a lasting gift that assists in the future which facilitates growth and supports the continuing exceptional work of Alzheimer Society Peel. It does not have to impact your current financial situation, but allow you to contribute to our organization.

Future gifts can allow you to receive tax benefits for yourself and your family, have control over where your estate or money goes, and aid other families and their children to receive help and services through their journey with the disease. Alzheimer Society Peel is thankful for all bequests, large and small, that we receive. By informing us of your intended wishes we can plan for future services and programs; as well as acknowledge you in your lifetime and have you share in our successes.
