Lasting Legacy

Why write a Will?

Creating a Will, regardless of age or net worth, brings peace of mind. It ensures your assets go to the people and causes you care about most and relieves your loved ones of any unnecessary stress in your absence.

Have you considered including Kerby Centre or Veiner Centre in your Will to support seniors through Unison Programs and Services? A Legacy Gift, regardless of estate size, provides vital support for our community's seniors, ensuring your memory lives on.

Prioritize your loved ones, then consider Unison for lasting impact. Discuss your options with family and a financial advisor for added peace of mind.A
