GHS Estates & Planned Giving Seminar, in partnership with RLB

November 18 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

November is Prepare Your Will Month.
This session invites people who are interested in learning how to prepare estate and planned gifts.

About this event

Learn more about making a planned or estate gift to a charity, with information from a professional accountant and Guelph Humane Society staff.

This free event is planning to have an in person opportunity at our new building at 190 Hanlon Creek Blvd. (max 20 people), as well as streaming online. The date and set up of this event is pending COVID-19 restrictions & registrations.

In partnership with RLB Chartered Professional Accountants. The RLB speaker is Alex Di Lello (CPA, CA), Senior Manager from the Estates team.

Alex will discuss the tax advantages of planned gifts and donations, stocks & securities during your lifetime and in your Will. Every gift makes a real difference in the lives of animals today, and in the decades to come.

Have you planned for your own pet’s future?

The Guelph Humane Society’s Executive Director Adrienne McBride will also be speaking on Pet Stewardship, and how to plan for your pet should they outlive you.

Please note: Visitors must show proof of full vaccination status & photo ID to attend in person. Those with a valid medical note are exempt from this requirement.
