Leave your Legacy

Share your enjoyment of the outdoors, your appreciation for wildlife and your concern for the health of our environment.

Express your passion and give future generations the opportunity to share precious memories like yours: the pride of handing down tradition, the simple moments cherished with loved ones or the humility experienced in the presence of nature. Your legacy has a lot to offer.

Unfortunately, half of adult Canadians don’t have a will. For your loved ones, one of the greatest things you can do is have your affairs in order. Having an up-to-date will is the only way to ensure your assets will be dispersed according to your wishes. It’s important to us that all supporters in our DUC family have prepared a will. Please consider your legacy and loved ones and have a will made.

Our planned giving program offers a simple way to leave a lasting gift that will conserve wetlands into the future. We celebrate your generosity with membership to our international Feather Society, a group of conservation-minded individuals who understand the importance of wetlands for our future.

The conservation spirit lives in you. If now feels like the right time to begin planning your legacy, we encourage you to discuss your interests with Aaron Everingham, our national planned giving manager. Aaron will help you plan your gift to suit your wishes and your personal, financial and tax circumstances.
