Leave A Gift In Your Will

Gender based violence is deeply rooted in gender-discrimination and gender-inequality. You can support our vision of a world without gender-based violence or gender discrimination by naming Surrey Women’s Centre in your will.

What is a gift in your will?

A gift made in your will, also known as a bequest, is one of the simplest ways to make a significant contribution to Surrey Women’s Centre. Bequests can be designated to a certain program or left flexible for the Centre to use as it sees fit to advance it’s cause.

Benefits of giving in your will

You can give a percentage of your estate to Surrey Women’s Centre and distribute your money to loved ones with great flexibility.

A gift in your will can significantly reduce tax liability upon death – helping you leave more for your family and loved ones, while supporting charity.

You are in full control and can change you will anytime.
