Is Leaving a Gift in Your Will for You?

Creating a better world for generations to come is possible and leaving a charitable gift in your Will may be the first step to do so. Not only can you make a bigger contribution to Daily Bread Food Bank, but your gift will make an impact well into the future.

The best part? You don’t have to choose between supporting our mission to end hunger and the loved ones included in your Will. Check out the easy-to-use legacy calculator on our Will Power page to see how you can support both:

If all this is new to you, here are the most common questions we get about giving in this way: 

  1. If I leave a charitable gift in my Will, can I still take care of family? Yes, you can do both. A donation of as little as 1% of your estate can be a truly powerful gift, while still leaving 99% for family and friends.
  1. I’m not wealthy, I don’t have much to give. Most charitable bequests are left by Canadians of modest means. You may be surprised to find that when all of your assets are realized, you too will have a tidy sum to support both the people and causes you care about.
  1. I want to know how my gift will be used. You can learn about how Daily Bread would use your gift here. Or contact me to discuss how you’d like your gift to take shape.
