We know that volunteering is more than activity for people. It is a value. Whether you are a volunteer, have been helped by volunteers, or you work or live with volunteers, you have witnesses the power of volunteerism.
If volunteers matter to you have you ever thought about leaving Volunteer Victoria a gift in your will?
When the time is right and you have taken care of your loved ones you may decide to gift a specific dollar amount or a percentage of assets in your will. You might even consider using assets for your charitable gift. These include (but are not limited to) cash, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, term deposits, real estate, jewelry or insurance. Such gifts may provide you with tax savings.
You have options, you could:
- Name Volunteer Victoria as beneficiary of your RRSP, RRIF or pension,

- Remember your loved ones with a memorial gift
Volunteer Victoria is able to help you find expert advice so that you can make the right choice for you, your loved ones, and for the causes, ideas, and spaces that matter to you.
