Gift in your will

Main Content

By remembering the CNIB Foundation in your will, you’re building a legacy and providing future support to CNIB Foundation's mission and life-changing programs. Unless you choose otherwise, your donation will directly benefit people with sight loss in your own community.

You can give a legacy gift and change lives in three simple steps:

1) Get in touch.

 Considering leaving a gift in your will to the CNIB Foundation? Our legacy giving specialists can guide you through the process. Contact Ruth D'Souza at 1-800-563-2642 ext. 7006 or ruth.dsouza@cnib.ca.

2) Decide what you'd like to set aside.

 Whether you choose to give a specific sum, a small percentage or leave the remainder of your estate to the CNIB Foundation, our team is here to help.

3) Visit your lawyer.

 Work with your lawyer to legally change your will. Our team can recommend lawyers in your area who are sensitive to the challenges of sight loss.

Thank you for considering a gift in your will. Through legacy gifts from people like you, the CNIB Foundation can continue changing what it is to be blind, now and in the future.

Our promise to you: We respect your privacy. Our staff recognizes that making a gift in your will is a personal choice. The CNIB Foundation can provide guidance but it is an important decision you need to make on your own.

Recognizing your support
