  • It has tax advantages: A gift in your Will is a highly effective way to reduce taxes on your estate after death.
  • It has a lasting impact: Leaving a charitable gift in your Will gives you the satisfaction that the areas you felt strongly about in your lifetime will continue to receive support, even after you’re gone.
