legacy giving

build a legacy and help transform lives

The legacy you leave will make an impact for many years to come. Families will grow and become stronger, financially secure, more active and supportive members of their communities.

You can help address housing needs in the GTA now and in the future by remembering us in your will or by making another type of planned gift. Through our planned giving options, Habitat for Humanity GTA can help you achieve your financial and philanthropic goals.

Designate a fixed dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a particular piece of property. And, by applying investment principles to charitable giving, Habitat for Humanity GTA can ensure that your dollars have the greatest impact in transforming the lives of those living in need.

tribute donation

A bequest in your Will allows you to make a generous contribution to a charity that you may not have been able to afford during your lifetime. The amount of your bequest is 100% deductible against your income in the year of your death and can be credited against income in the year prior to death, thus reducing your estate’s tax burden.

sample wording for your bequest


Donate gifts of stock or marketable securities directly to Habitat for Humanity GTA, now or through your estate, and realize impressive tax savings while supporting affordable home building initiatives in the GTA.
