Legacy & Planned Gifts

Transform someone’s life today

Make a Transformative Gift

Making a charitable gift doesn’t always mean writing a cheque –  You can include Wesley in your personal legacy by leaving a gift in your will, making a planned gift, or giving a gift of securities.   You can choose to give to a specific area of our work, such as children’s programs, homelessness outreach and prevention, or newcomers or another program of your choice or simply allow us to respond to the community need that’s most urgent.  By making a planned or legacy gift,  you can make a transformative impact in the lives of vulnerable individuals, children and families in our community.

Are you interested in learning more? Please reach out to us by emailing or call 905-528-5629 x 234 to learn more about this type of giving and how it can impact our work.

Wesley’s Legacy Circle 

When you advise Wesley about your legacy or planned gift, we welcome you to join Wesley’s Legacy Circle.  You’ll receive regular communication from us on upcoming initiatives, and be invited to an annual luncheon where we will celebrate your commitment. 

About Will Power

We’ve joined more than 80 charities, financial advisors and legal services to show that you don’t have to choose between loved ones and the causes you care about when planning your will.   Visit to access informative tools, articles and information about legacy giving . 


Mary’s planning her transformative gift. Will you join her?
Mary is a long-time volunteer and Wesley supporter, and she wants to make that part of her legacy.  She was a teacher for 32 years and knows how impactful Wesley’s work is to economically disadvantaged children living within inner city neighbourhoods of Hamilton. Mary’s working out a plan that not only takes care of her and her family’s needs, but also supports Wesley’s work with children in a significant way.  We’re honoured to have this partnership with Mary and to be a part of her legacy.
