Legacy Giving

Leave a gift of hope

Leave your legacy. Leave a gift in your Will

A meaningful way to show your care for children and families is to leave a gift in your will. You can make a gift to Canuck Place, in support of pediatric palliative care as part of your legacy.

We share heartfelt thanks with all supporters who decide to make this special gift, which is a way to make an impact beyond their lifetimes. Legacy donations support vital care for children and families from across BC and the Yukon.
