Group encourages legacies for charities

NANAIMO – An event will be held in May for information on donating legacies to charity.

A group of local charities has joined forces to spread awareness of a national program to highlight the importance of keeping an up-to-date will and to encourage people to leave a gift to a charity or non-profit organization.

Nanaimo’s new Leave a Legacy committee is the local branch of   the Canadian Association of Gift Planners.
