LEAVE A LEGACYTM Quebec is an awareness program which aims to promote planned gifts, in particular charitable bequests. It is supported by the Round Tables of Quebec of the Canadian Association of Gift Planners (CAGP-ACPDPTM).

The program informs Quebeckers on planned giving: a type of donation which can be fiscally advantageous and accessible to all. LEAVE A LEGACYTM Quebec groups together a large number of charitable organizations and carries out awareness campaigns in their name in selected media throughout Quebec.

By increasing its visibility, the program aims to inform the Quebec population on planned giving and encourage them to plan such a gift, whatever the amount, with the help of a professional (notary, lawyer, accountant or financial planner).

Planned giving is a long-term source of financing for charitable organizations.
