Planned giving

When you leave a gift to CPAWS you’ll be helping to conserve our country’s magnificent wilderness forever. You’ll be ensuring that tomorrow’s children will still hear the call of the loon and the white-throated sparrow in our forests.

Planned gifts help ensure that generations to come will enjoy the magnificent wilderness and wildlife that Canada has to offer.

Once you have decided how much you can afford to give, you may wish to consider one of the following types of planned gifts:

  • Life insurance
  • Charitable gift annuity
  • Charitable remainder trust
  • Bequest

To make a planned gift, please contact us.

Gift of Securities

A gift of securities to a charity benefits both the donor and the charity. Listed Securities include stocks, bonds, bills, warrants and futures traded on approved stock exchanges in Canada and certain other countries. They also include mutual funds.
