Consider a Gift in Your Will

Elizabeth Fry Toronto is committed to ensuring supportive services, community based programs and transitional housing to help criminalized women create meaningful change in their lives for the benefit of themselves, their families and the community as a whole.

Leaving a gift to Elizabeth Fry Toronto is a wonderful way to continue to support programs that help women in conflict with the law.

Leaving a gift can also provide considerable tax relief for your estate. Elizabeth Fry Toronto will issue a charitable donation receipt for the value of your gift. This receipt can be used to offset income tax owing by your estate.


Consider a gift in the form of:

  • A percentage of your estate
  • A lump sum
  • Real estate, investments, jewelry or art

Elizabeth Fry Toronto encourages you to seek the services of a qualified and experienced estate lawyer to ensure that a gift is set up in the most appropriate way.

Sometimes the company we keep can have serious, everlasting consequences that alter the course of our life. Charlie found out the hard way that her partner did not have the best of intentions after she was arrested for holding on to his gun. Luckily, Charlie was strong enough to turn her situation around.  Charlie took full advantage of programs available when she was at Grand Valley Institute, and that hard work paid off upon her arrival to the Phyllis Haslam Residence at Elizabeth Fry Toronto. 

Upon her release, Charlie had a job lined up in a field she was passionate about, and has been working hard to save money so she can support herself when she is granted her full parole. Most importantly, Charlie has reconnected with old friends. By surrounding herself with positive influences who are as invested in her success as she is, it reminds Charlie that life always moves forward.
