You have many options available to you as you create your nature legacy through Wildlands League. Your generous action today will protect nature for all the children in your life, to appreciate long into the future.

Stocks and Securities

When you donate a gift of stocks, you receive a tax receipt for the value of your gift. You will not have to pay tax on the realized capital gain. The receipt value will reflect the closing price on the transfer date. The standard capital gain inclusion rate of 50 percent on selling shares is eliminated. Donating stocks and securities is a way to protect the planet for the future. Learn more.

In Memory

Express your love, admiration, and gratitude for someone special. Donate a gift in your will to honour your loved one, pay tribute to them, share your passion to protect nature. Making a gift in will in honour of someone special to you will stand as your legacy and your loved one’s legacy for generations to come. Learn more.

Donor Advised Funds

Donor-advised funds (DAFs) are like a personal charitable savings account. They allow you to make a charitable contribution (into your DAF account) today, receive an immediate tax deduction and then make grants over time to charities like Wildlands League. Then, in your will, you can leave a legacy gift by naming Wildlands League as the beneficiary of the DAF account balance. Already have a DAF? For information on how to name Wildlands as a beneficiary or make a donation from your DAF account now, contact: Jennifer Berney, Donor Specialist. If not, contact your financial advisor to find out more.

Life Insurance

One way to leave a gift of life insurance for nature is to assign Wildlands League as the beneficiary of your policy or the life insurance policy from your employer. Your estate will receive a tax receipt equal to the direct benefit to Wildlands League. You create a legacy and your heirs benefit through a significant tax reduction.


The second option is to purchase a new policy, name Wildlands League as owner and receive tax receipts, during your lifetime, for any premiums paid after the date of transfer. Contact us for more information.

Gifts in Will

Remember nature with a gift in your Will, name Wildlands League as a beneficiary and make a lasting contribution to the planet. You can take care of your family first and still take care of nature with a give in will to Wildlands League. Give a percentage or residual that keeps in line with inflation and does not lose value over time. Learn more.
