A GIFT IN YOUR WILL

       Legacy giving is planning for a future gift to a cause that you believe in.

Wills and Bequests

Bequests may come in the form of a percentage of your estate, specific cash amount, property, securities or other assets. A charitable bequest has no effect on you financially in your lifetime and is one of the simplest and most flexible ways to create a lasting legacy.

A bequest is a lasting gift from the heart with practical benefits to your surviving heirs. Your estate receives a tax receipt for the full amount of the donation, which may offset capital gains or other taxes due. You may designate the gift to specific programs, or allow Nelson Community Services to put it to work where most needed at the time.

Leaving a bequest to Nelson Community Services will help to maintain services to families, youth and individuals in the Nelson community. Providing a variety of services for youth enables them to advance to an enriched adulthood; providing family support programs to strengthen parents’ ability ensures the health and safety of their children.

Please consider becoming a
Nelson Community Services Legacy Partner
as an essential part of your estate planning strategy.

If you have completed your will and left a provision for NCS, please let us know through our NCS bequests so we can express our thanks and properly plan for your future gift.

                        It’s easier than you may think

All it takes is a simple clause in your will to leave a gift of hope to Nelson Community Services – and continue transforming lives long after you’ve gone.  Your lawyer can include a simple clause naming NCS as a beneficiary.

Naming Nelson Community Services in your will is an ideal way to build a legacy.
You’ll make a significant and meaningful difference in your community
without feeling any financial impact in your lifetime
