Why Do I Want to Leave a Legacy Gift?


Since becoming a volunteer at Covenant House, I have witnessed firsthand the dedication and sincerity of the staff as they interact with the youth at the drop-in centre. The staff is totally COMMITTED to transforming the lives of these homeless kids.

The entire organization is so impressive and has a professional team of counsellors, case/outreach workers, development/fundraising personnel, administration staff and, of course, a wonderful volunteer coordinator! They all work tirelessly to ensure that Covenant House remains a sanctuary for hundreds of street kids.

And, of course, I am very grateful to Sister Nancy Brown, whose heartwarming letters of hope and transformation inspired me to become a volunteer.

By leaving a legacy gift in my will, I know, in a small way, that I can continue to support this wonderful organization and give these deserving young people a chance for a healthy and productive life!

The Clark Wilson LLP Wealth Preservation Group and Leave a Legacy Vancouver program of the Canadian Association of Gift Planners worked closely to help build awareness for Make a Will Week (MAWW), a Ministry of Justice campaign that encourages people to create and maintain an up-to-date will. An up-to-date will ensures that the people, charities and organizations you care about most receive the benefit of your estate.
