Commit to supporting programs that help adults remain healthy and active in the London community.

Today, more than ever, individuals are including their charity of choice in their wills and estate plans. Did you know that May is Leave a Legacy month? When you include the Canadian Centre for Activity and Aging (CCAA) in your financial planning, you are supporting programs and services that helped you and other older adults in the London community remain healthy and active throughout their retirement years.

An article published in The Globe and Mail recently stated that giving to charity is rewarding on many fronts. Donors commonly say “making a difference” is their primary motivator, and that tax savings rarely top the list of their reasons to give. However, the tax benefits can be significant depending on the size of the gift and the giver’s income. Read the full article on The Globe and Mail website.
