Legacy Giving
Leaving a gift in your Will to AURA is a simple and meaningful way to be remembered. It’s a way for you to express your values and beliefs about refugees and refugee sponsorship long after you are gone. Refugees will experience your care and concern as your legacy gift helps them find a safe place to live in Canada, and supports them in the transition to their new lives here. Your far-sighted investment ensures that AURA will be here to train, support and guide a robust network of sponsorship volunteers, who carry out the work of ensuring refugees are well supported as they create new lives. Putting your values down in your Will by planning a gift to AURA can feel wonderful!
