As a caring member of our community, you can create your indelible legacy by putting your hands in the hands of bereaved children. You will be creating opportunities that will give them hope and comfort well beyond your lifetime.

When you leave a gift in your Will to Seasons Centre, you will join a special group of donors in our Legacy of Hope Giving Society. Your gift will ensure we can be there for future children and families when they go through one of the toughest times of their lives.  

Leaving a gift in your Will can offer many benefits including:

  • Your income today is not affected.
  • Peace of mind knowing your estate is arranged and your heirs are taken care of first.
  • Ensuring your values live on and that you are creating a legacy that will make a lasting difference to the causes you believe in

1 in 14 children will experience the death of a sibling or caregiver by the time they turn 18. Grief can be a very isolating experience for children and youth. Studies show that when they receive support to work through the grief process, they are better equipped to cope with the big feelings throughout their journey and to participate more positively in society.  

Your legacy will aid our mission to ensure no child grieves alone.

How to Join Seasons Centre’s Legacy of Hope Giving Society:

At Seasons Centre for Grieving Children, we can help you set up a gift in your Will in the most tax-efficient way. We encourage you to seek independent counsel before making a legacy gift.

We are here to help with your legacy giving questions including our new Legacy of Hope Giving Society. Please contact Lisa Spinks, Development Director, at 705.721.5437 ext. 303 or [email protected] for more information.
