Your legacy gift supports health, security, and dignity in old age.


Help the world’s most vulnerable older people by leaving a legacy gift to HelpAge Canada through a will, trust or beneficiary designation. You can name your estate gift in memory or honor of a parent, grandparent or anyone else as an enduring remembrance and tribute.


A gift in your will.

You can name a specific or actual dollar amount or a percentage of what is left after you leave specific gifts for family and friends.
