Creating a Better World for Your Family and Others — And a Legacy for Yourself

Noel Xavier and Kathy Hawkesworth discuss how you can build a legacy through proper estate planning

In addition to your family, what has brought you joy during your lifetime (e.g. arts, education, nature, recreation)? Are there any issues that you would love to help solve (e.g. health condition, poverty, environment)? Have any organizations helped you or a loved one? Your will and estate plan offer you an unrivalled opportunity to create your legacy of caring for the causes and issues important to you and save significant taxes. You may have one or more favourite charities but have no idea how to support something very important to you. This presentation will address ways to make a meaningful difference while providing generously for your family. Tools will be provided to help you think through what type of legacy plan will give you a sense of satisfaction and adjust to changes over time and ways to get started.

Hosted by Noel Xavier and Kathy Hawkesworth.
