Step 1: Make the decision that creating a bequest gift through your Will is the right step for you to take. Determine the type and amount of the gift you wish to make, and if you wish to have it used for the Canadian Council of the Blind’s priorities or to support a specific Council program.
Step 2: Call your lawyer and request that they include a codicil in your Will that establishes a gift for the Canadian Council of the Blind. Provide your lawyer with our legal written name, the Canadian Council of the Blind. Please see below. Your lawyer will handle the remaining details. Many lawyers will include this codicil in your Will free of charge.
