If you were to witness a fire, a flood, a famine, or a disaster, what would you do? Your first instinct is likely to help. That powerful human instinct – helping people in crisis – is at the very heart of the Canadian Red Cross.

There will always be situations where the Red Cross is needed, but we can only be there with your support. We cannot stop famines or floods, but as long as there are people like you who are prepared to help, our humanitarian spirit can endure. One individual can make a difference. You can leave a lasting legacy by including a gift to the Canadian Red Cross in your will. Your gift will help the Canadian Red Cross endure and continue to represent you – the very best of humanity – at the very worst of times.

The Canadian Red Cross has a nationwide team of over 30,000 dedicated volunteers who provide valuable services when and where they are needed. They help communities facing disaster and teach people how to be safe from abuse and violence through RespectED programs. The Canadian Red Cross provides critical First Aid training and over one million Canadians take their swimming and water safety programs. We are part of your community.

A will ensures that your wishes are carried out exactly as you planned and helps to avoid unnecessary legal expenses and taxes. A will that includes Red Cross allows you to make a significant and lasting legacy to humanity. Charitable gift annuities, life insurance, gifts of property, listed securities or investments and charitable remainder trusts are other options available to make a legacy gift to the Canadian Red Cross and mobilize the power of humanity.

The work of the Canadian Red Cross is made possible with the generosity and compassion of people like you. To find a Planned Giving Representative and learn more about how your gift can benefit humanity, visit
