bequest

Leaving a legacy gift to Covenant House in your will is a simple and powerful way to make a significant impact on the future of our kids while offering financial benefits to you and your family.

To make a lasting and meaningful gift to the kids at Covenant House, you only need to name Covenant House Toronto as beneficiary in your will. You can leave a percentage of your estate, the residue or a specific cash donation, a paid-up life insurance policy, securities or property. Your lawyer can contact us for any legal information that is required.

A bequest offers flexibility. You retain complete control during your lifetime and it provides your heirs with tax relief.

White Dove Society

Please contact us to let us know that you've left a gift for Covenant House in your will. When you let us know that you’ve made a bequest in your will, you become a member of our White Dove Society. As a way of honouring legacy gifts, a white dove with your name will be placed on our White Dove Society Wall. It serves as a constant reminder to the young people who live here that they are not forgotten.
