Leave a Gift in Your Will

Supporting students through a gift in your will

Your will is not just a legal means to distribute your personal assets; it can be a powerful tool for social change. And, it’s not an either/or proposition – you can leave a gift in your Will to charity while still taking care of those you love.

When you make a legacy donation through your will to Niagara College, your gift has the power to transform lives, and an endowed gift can benefit students for generations to come.

Your legacy gift to Niagara College could:

Support students in achieving a postsecondary education by funding scholarships or bursaries. Completing a college education opens up the doors to many rewarding careers and financial security, but we know that, for many students, the financial challenge is the greatest barrier to college success.

Help fund the ongoing need for instructional equipment. College graduates are the backbone of many occupations, skills and trades that are crucial to a strong economy. Providing the opportunity to train on the latest advancements and technology is the cornerstone of successful applied education, enabling students to ‘hit the ground running’ upon graduation.

There are several options to make a donation through your Will. You may choose to donate a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, or the residue of your estate. Download sample bequest language to share with your legal advisor.
