DO YOU SOMETIMES WISH YOU COULD DO MORE?
Many of us feel that our capacity to make a significant gift today is restrained by the reality of living on a fixed income, or the fact that our biggest assets are tied up in our homes and our retirement plans.
A gift in your will is a way to have an impact on the future without affecting the quality of life you have today. It’s also a way to ensure the sustainability of a cause that’s close to your heart.
Our vision at Habilitas Foundation of creating a world where disabilities are no longer disabling, is a long term one. Remembering us by putting a gift in your Will is a simple way to achieve this. It’s also a way to make a bigger gift than may be possible today.
IMAGINE THE DIFFERENCE YOU WILL MAKE TO THE GENERATIONS THAT WILL FOLLOW YOU – THE POTENTIAL YOU HAVE TO CHANGE THE WORLD!
As one of Habilitas Foundation’s cherished partners, the Montreal Association for the Blind (the MAB, now part of the Lethbridge-Layton-Mackay Rehabilitation Centre), has been assisting people in the Montreal community living with visual impairments since 1908; helping children and adults develop the life skills that empower them to regain their independence and quality of life. Joan’s mother benefitted from many of the centre’s services. “The caring staff at the centre provided her with support and tools , including a walking cane, giving her the ability to maneuver at home and outdoors. These little things allowed Mom to live alone and feel a sense of independence,” says Joan.
In appreciation, I decided to leave a gift in my will to the MAB-Mackay. It feels great to know that I can help ensure that others facing vision loss will receive the same incredible level of care and support my mom and I did.”
