Why Gifts in Wills Matter

Jennison Asuncion smilingYour loved ones come first, always. But after you’ve taken care of your family, we hope that you’ll consider using your will to make a lasting difference in the lives of Canadians who are working to overcome the challenges of vision loss – with a special legacy gift to CNIB. 

It could be one of the most powerful decisions you ever make. 

A promise of hope

CNIB relies on gifts in wills for a large portion of our funding each year. In fact, we couldn’t continue to do the work that we do without them.

That’s because gifts in wills enable Canadians to be more generous than they ever could in their lifetime – and more of your money can go directly to supporting Canadians who are blind or partially sighted. 

What your gift can do 

  • Create a brighter future for kids, with one-on-one children’s services covering everything from literacy to social interaction.

  • Open doors to employment, through practical training in things like how to use a computer, write a résumé and track down job leads.

  • Give the opportunity for a full, active life, with programs that promote physical and emotional wellbeing.
  • Help make prevention a priority, through projects that raise awareness about vision health and help prevent Canadians from losing their sight.

  • Fund research for a better world, designed to improve understanding of eye health and the needs of people who are blind or partially sighted.

  • Enable independence in everyday life, with practical support in everything from cooking to walking with a white cane.
