What will your Legacy be?

If you don’t already have a Will, or if you do but haven’t updated it in awhile, you may be unsure about where to start. Weizmann Canada has recently launched a new Will Guide designed to help you prepare, or update, your existing will.

When we think about our Legacy it often starts with the question, “what will happen after I am gone?” Though it’s a subject we may prefer to put off into the future, death can be unexpected and can lead to situations where those left behind are uninformed or unprepared. Planning your estate means you can rest assured of what you will leave behind, what impact it will have, and how you will be remembered in the future. 

A written Will, one drawn up with the advice of a lawyer or notary (according to your province of residence) is the first step in planning for the future of your estate. It makes clear your wishes for distributing your property.  

If you don’t already have a Will, or if you do but haven’t updated it in a while, you may be unsure about where to start. Weizmann Canada has recently launched a new Will Guide designed to help you prepare, or update, your existing will. The new guide looks at things to consider when writing or reviewing your will, and the different ways to leave a Legacy gift to organizations that are dear to your heart. 

By leaving a Legacy gift to Weizmann Canada your generosity and commitment will help ensure the future of our scientists and allow them to follow their curiosity and challenge existing thinking, opening doors to breakthroughs and discoveries creating a brighter future for all of humanity. 

If you would like to know more about the guide, or about leaving a Legacy gift, please contact Lori Sussman by email at loris@weizmann.ca or by phone at 1-800-387-3894 Ext. 27.
