Leave a Gift in Your Will

A lasting way for you to support TRI’s mission is to leave us a gift in your will, living trust or with a codicil through a bequest. Together we will co-create a climate resilient future and reduce risk to disasters. 

A bequest is a gift from your estate. It will reduce your estate taxes. You can give as much or as little as you want and you will make a lasting difference to TRI’s work to build resilience to the impacts of climate change.

Just add a phrase about your intention using our legal name and Canadian charitable number: The Rockies Institute o/a The Resilience Institute, Canmore, Alberta, Canada, BN 816892368RR0001


Types of Bequests


There are a number of ways you can make a bequest to TRI

Specific Bequest. A specific bequest involves making a gift of a specific asset such as real estate, a car, other property or a gift for a specific dollar amount. For example, you may wish to leave your home or $10,000 to TRI.

Percentage Bequest. Another kind of specific bequest involves leaving a specific percentage of your overall estate to charity. For example, you may wish to leave 10% of your estate to TRI.

Residual Bequest. A residual bequest is made from the balance of an estate after the will or trust has given away each of the specific bequests. A common residual bequest involves leaving a percentage of the residue of the estate to charity. For example, you may wish to leave 30% of the residue of your estate to TRI.
