Unless you keep close track of obscure holidays and observances, you probably didn’t know that August is “What Will Be Your Legacy?" Month. Still, you might want to use this particular month as a useful reminder to take action on what could be one of your most important financial goals: leaving a meaningful legacy.A legacy isn’t simply a document or a bunch of numbers — it’s what you will be remembered for, and what you have left behind that will be remembered. It’s essentially your chance to contribute positively to the future, whether that means providing financial resources for the next generation, helping those charitable organizations whose work you support, or a combination of both.

Darren Major is a graduate of Notre Dame College School and currently in his first year of the Masters of Journalism program at Carleton University. It was timely that the 40th Annual Notre Dame Pilgrimage took place while he was home in the local area during his reading work. The event became an ideal topic for an audio assignment that forms part of his course requirements at Carlton.
