Like many Canadians, you want to help make the world a better place, and create a legacy that reflects your personal values, beliefs and convictions. It is more than charitable giving, which is intended to provide relief to a situation. Philanthropy is a long-term activity, aimed at getting to the root causes of a problem in order to have a lasting impact.



HOW WE HELP


We’ll help you put a philanthropic structure in place to create a lasting legacy that can make a difference in your community.

GIVING THROUGH A PRIVATE FOUNDATION

A private foundation is the most highly structured and personal form of long-term giving, and the best suited for strategic philanthropy
