In Your Will

Once you’ve taken care of your loved ones, we hope you’ll consider a gift to DUC in your will.

Called a charitable bequest, your gift will help us conserve our water, wildlife and environment for future generations. You’ll have peace of mind ensuring that your family and financial matters are looked after.

Is a charitable bequest right for me?

Making a bequest can be as simple as inserting a few sentences into your will. Our planned giving team are happy to walk you through it. You don’t need deep pockets to make have an impact on the future. You are also free to alter your bequest at anytime.

What are the tax savings?

With your planned gift, you can eliminate up to 100 per cent of tax on your estate. Any remaining tax credit can be applied to the previous years’  taxes.

How do I get started?

Your legal advisor will likely be helping you prepare or amend your will. DUC offers a free will kit which provides an estate-planning guide and samples of important forms you may require when going over your will with your attorney.
