Leaving a Legacy

You can leave a legacy that brings God’s Word to those who need it most, with a planned gift to the Canadian Bible Society.

Giving through your will

By including the Canadian Bible Society in your will, you’ll have the opportunity to continue your legacy of furthering God’s Kingdom, while still providing for your family.

To include the Canadian Bible Society in your will, you may wish to use the wording from one of our sample bequest statements.
