Leave your gift
What it Entails
Members like you support the Ottawa Women’s Canadian Club through membership fees and luncheons. Members may also support the Club by choosing to leave a planned gift or ‘bequest’.
This charitable gift that you plan for now, through your Will, is not received by the Club until later. It is a personal statement about the values you have embraced throughout your lifetime and how you choose to support the causes and organizations that mean the most to you.
Following careful consideration of your personal and family needs, a bequest may be tailored to fit your particular circumstances and financial priorities. To ensure your wishes are honoured, this should be prepared with your lawyer or trusted advisor.
Supporting the OWCC through a bequest in your Will helps to ensure the future and sustainability of the activities we provide to our members, without diminishing your assets today.
Gifts Can Be Specifically Directed To:
- Provide scholarships or bursaries to a local college, the University of Ottawa, Carleton University, or Queen’s University.
- Thank our volunteer guest speakers with a token honorarium supporting the charity of their choice.
- Offset costs and ensure luncheons and fees remain accessible to all.
We recommend you discuss any gift arrangement with your professional advisor to make the best decision for your estate and financial plans. We also welcome the opportunity to discuss planning opportunities with you in confidence.
The OWCC recognizes and honours all gifts. If you prefer not to receive public recognition of your gift, please let us know. Your privacy and right to give anonymously will be honoured.
The OWCC graciously acknowledges the following legacy members for their generous support.
