PhilanthroPlan offers a range of legacy gift planning services to donors and prospective donors across Canada.

Many Canadians don't know where to turn for charitable estate planning help that they can trust.

They may receive unhelpful or incomplete advice and pay fees without gaining enough value in return. They put things off until next year, then the year after and so on creating an ongoing, expensive cycle of worry, frustration and lost opportunity. 

We understand this and are here to help so you can relax! Peace of mind is a valuable, yet elusive outcome. 

For a complimentary, no obligation chat, contact us at 1.888.613.6910. We believe you'll be glad you did.
