A gift in your will or bequest is the simplest and most popular way to leave a legacy to the Archdiocese of Vancouver or your parish. To make a gift in your will to the Archdiocese of Vancouver or your parish, your lawyer or notary simply prepares a new will or adds a codicil to an existing will. A gift in your will to the Archdiocese of Vancouver or your parish can be made for a specific amount, for a percentage of your estate, or for all or a portion of what is left after you have made gifts to your family.
