Legacy Giving

Imagine creating a legacy that says you helped stop Crohn's and colitis?

What do you want for the future? Today 270,000 Canadians are living with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, and pediatric cases are on the rise. Crohn's and Colitis Canada is committed to finding the cures for these diseases and improving the lives of kids and adults living with inflammatory bowel disease – both today and in the future.

Imagine having your legacy gift contribute to stopping Crohn's and colitis? To stop the unrelenting pain, the multiple surgeries, the missed moments and lost opportunities. What a future to leave to your family and all Canadians living with Crohn's and colitis!

The most common type of Legacy Gift is a charitable bequest made in your will; however, you may also consider a gift of securities or life insurance.

Together, with your support, we can create a future free from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
