Leave Your Mark through Charitable Giving

What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?

There are many ways you can make a difference, one of the most powerful being through a donation to charity. A contribution to a registered Canadian charity can put food on the table for families in need, give underprivileged children new opportunities and help those with disabilities lead a richer life. Whatever your inspiration, charitable giving is about taking action to have a meaningful impact.

Establishing an organized personal charitable giving program is a wonderful way to ensure you have a lasting impact in your community. Programs such as the Mackenzie Charitable Giving Program are simple and convenient solutions to support your favourite charities now and into the future. They also enable you to maximize your current donations and take advantage of potentially immediate tax benefits.

According to a recent Leger survey, 32% of Canadians say they are likely to leave a charitable donation in their will, but only 6% have talked about it with an advisor. 

Contact your advisor to set up your own charitable giving program.
