“I know that when people continually give to Canadian Blood Services, it means more healthy futures for other kids and families just like ours.” – Deanna, mother of blood recipient, Cole.
We know that giving is personal and choosing how your legacy lives on in the future even more so. Leaving a gift to Canadian Blood Services in your will enables your legacy to endure and sustains Canada’s Lifeline, because the need for blood and blood products never stops.
Especially for kids like Cole, who received his first blood transfusion at two months old and will require many more throughout his life. Cole is just one example of the thousands of patients who will rely on Canada’s Lifeline – now, and in the future.
Planning your legacy gift
Legacy giving through a gift in your will is one more way to make helping your fellow Canadians be part of your life story. There are several options for leaving a financial donation to Canadian Blood Services in your will and many ways to direct your gift to support lifesaving work that aligns with your unique goals and values.
Canadian Blood Services has partnered with Will Power, a national movement made up of charities, financial advisors and legal professionals across the country, working together to show Canadians they have the power to make a difference through their will. Through our partnership, we want Canadians to be assured that legacy gifts to Canada’s Lifeline help patients who rely on lifesaving blood, plasma, stem cells and organs and tissues – today and in the future.
