Legacy Donations: Leave a gift in your Will

The Canoe Foundation is a UK wide charity, dedicated to improving places to paddle. Since 2021 the Foundation has linked closely to the Clear Access Clear Waters campaign to drive sustainable access improvements to our waterways.

If you would like to see Canoe Foundation work continue to make a difference, please consider leaving a legacy donation in your Will.

We rely on donations to be able to improve places to paddle across the UK. By leaving a gift in your Will, no matter what the size, you are enabling us to help future generations enjoy improved access to our waterways for paddling and recreational purposes.

Leaving a gift in your Will is simple. The details below should help your Solicitor when drafting up your Will. If you require any further details, please contact us.
