We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Parkinson Canada.  

Parkinson Canada supports lives across Canada touched by Parkinson’s. From diagnosis to discovery, Parkinson Canada supports people living with Parkinson’s through education, services, advocacy, and research.

For every will purchased with the code PARKINSON20 for the month of October, Willful will be donating $20 to Parkinson Canada as our featured charity of the month. Plus, enjoy an additional $20 OFF any Willful plan with the code PARKINSON20.

Leave a legacy gift to Parkinson Canada

A legacy gift (or bequest) is a gift in your will left to a charity, school, or non-profit organization. It can be a piece of property, cash amount, or percentage of your estate. Over 100,000 Canadians live with Parkinson’s. By leaving a small percentage of your estate, you can take part in improving the quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s disease even long after you’re gone.

How do legacy gifts help organizations like Parkinson Canada?

An AngusReid survey commissioned by Willful found only 12% of Canadians plan to leave a gift to charity in their will. We’re working hard to increase that number!  Since our launch, we’ve enabled over 7,000 gifts left to charities in wills with over $30 million in cash gifts alone. No matter how small the legacy gift, a little goes a long way. By leaving a gift in your will, you will be helping scientific researchers, advocates, and supporters build a better future for those living with Parkinson’s, No Matter What.

How do I leave a legacy gift for Parkinson Canada?

People often expect legacy giving to be a lengthy, complicated process. With Willful, leaving a legacy gift is simple and involves just a few clicks. After the Special Gifts section where you assign property and lump sum cash gifts to beneficiaries, you will see our charitable giving section that allows you to leave a lump sum to Parkinson Canada or another charity of your choice!

If you prefer to leave a percentage of your residual estate, you can add a charity as a beneficiary in the next section. (Your residual estate is everything left after debts and taxes are paid and specific gifts are distributed).
