LEAVE A LEGACY™ is a national, community-based public awareness campaign of CAGP that encourages people to leave a gift through their will or another planned giving vehicle to a charity or cause that is meaningful to them. 

LEAVE A LEGACY™ was first established in the United States by the Central Ohio Planners and licensed to CAGP in Canada. For more than 10 years, the program was generously supported by Great-West Life, London Life, and Canada Life as the LEAVE A LEGACY™ Founding National Development Sponsor. Today, the program is delivered through local CAGP Chapters.

Each local LEAVE A LEGACY™ program is distinct in its organization and delivery in order to serve the unique needs of its community while, collectively, providing an important public awareness message. Supporters of local LEAVE A LEGACY™ programs include charitable organizations, professional estate and financial organizations, financial institutions, community foundations, other local funders and the media. 

LEAVE A LEGACY™ has 6 local Canadian programs that operate under CAGP Chapters. Each program is unique in its own way, as no two communities are identical.
