Leave a Gift in Your Will

Planned Giving

A donation in your will to The Mississauga Food Bank is a wonderful way to use your legacy to help ensure no one goes hungry in Mississauga for years to come. Leaving a donation to charity in your will is NOT just for the “wealthy”. You can leave any amount – either a fixed amount or percentage of your estate – to The Mississauga Food Bank.

A proper financial advisor is the key to making an effective estate plan that fulfills your wishes, takes care of those you love and ensures your affairs are concluded in a fair and agreeable manner.

Tribute Giving

It is also important to recognize the power of tribute giving as part of your end-of-life plans. Family members are often too distraught to consider the wishes of the deceased and don’t choose any charity at all when printing an obituary or memorial service program. By including your wish to have gifts made to The Mississauga Food Bank in your memory or in lieu of flowers, it could see food provided to those who are hungry in our community all in your memory!
