You can help protect the future of exploration and geographic education in Canada.
The vital work of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society provides resources to 25,000 educators and sends researchers into the depths of Canada — we can’t protect what we have until we know what’s out there. That’s why our work is so important. By leaving a gift in your will, you take a leading and lasting role to protect that future for generations to come.
We make it easy to commit to a gift that costs you nothing now.
Important information you’ll need to know, regardless of how you leave a legacy with us:
Legal name: The Royal Canadian Geographical Society
Charitable registration number: 108096371 RR 001
