Options to Consider

When deciding how to incorporate the Bruce Trail Conservancy in your will, you may wish to consider a percentage of the residue of the estate once your loved ones are looked after, or a specific bequest

Gifting a share of your assets

A “residual gift” allows you to leave a percentage of what is left of your estate or assets once all debts have been paid.

Sample wording:
My estate trustees shall pay or transfer to The Bruce Trail Conservancy all (or %) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate to be used for the general purposes of The Bruce Trail Conservancy.

Gifting a specific amount

This allows you to leave a specific amount to the Bruce Trail Conservancy.

Sample wording:
My estate trustees shall pay or transfer to The Bruce Trail Conservancy the sum of $________ to be used for the general purposes of The Bruce Trail Conservancy.

Adding a codicil

If you already have a will in place, you may wish to speak to your legal advisor about the simple process of adding a codicil to your will.
