Leave a Legacy
Plan today for a gift that will provide a lasting impact. By providing the Saskatchewan Environmental Society with a legacy gift, you will help us work towards our goal of building a sustainable future for all. A gift in your will no matter how small will perpetuate the work you believe in and make an impact on the future.
Ways to leave a legacy with SES:
- Wills & Bequests
In addition to providing provisions for the financial security of your family, property distribution, and funeral instructions, you can bequest financial gifts to your favourite charity to ensure the work you supported in your life will continue. Leaving a gift to the Saskatchewan Environmental Society in your will can be as simply as adding a few sentences. Click here for suggested wording in wills or contact your lawyer for assistance.
- Life Insurance
Naming the Saskatchewan Environmental Society as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy can provide a combination of immediate and long-term tax benefits and affordability. Gifts of life insurance can benefit both your estate and your favourite charity. The amount of the gift is guaranteed and is not reduced due to taxes, probate, or administrative costs. Premium payments are eligible for tax receipts. We recommend working with an experienced actuary and underwriter.
- Stocks & Securities
Donating stock securities or mutual fund shares to the Saskatchewan Environmental Society benefits you and your family while supporting sustainability in your community for a lifetime. Your security of mutual fund donation means a larger donation for your favourite charity, and it means a larger charitable tax receipt for you. All donated securities are sold upon receipt, and the amount of your charitable gift is determined by the closing price on the day SES receives the securities into our account.

These and other gifting strategies require appropriate planning. We encourage our donors and supporters to seek the advice of qualified professionals prior to making any planned legacy gift.
