PLANNED GIVING AND BEQUESTS

By arranging for a bequest or gift of life insurance and telling us now, you can help us plan today for the critical conservation work essential to conserving and protecting our province's fish, wildlife and habitat resources for future generations.

What is a Bequest?

A bequest is a gift made in your will - and a highly effective way of carrying on your support for the people and causes that mattered most to you during your lifetime.

How do I include a gift in my will?

Whether or not you already have a will, the easiest way to include a gift in your will is to get professional help from a legal advisor experienced in preparing wills.  If you need help finding a suitable legal advisor or financial planner, we would be happy to assist you.

Sample Bequest Wording

"My estate trustees shall pay the sum of $_______ (or transfer assets with an equal value) to B.C. Wildlife Federation, Surrey, BC (charitable registration number 11880 1315 RR0001) for the purpose of supporting the highest priority conservation projects as determined by the Federation."

"My estate trustees shall pay ______% of the residue of my estate to B.C. Wildlife Federation, Surrey, BC (charitable registration number 11880 1315 RR0001) for the purpose of supporting the highest priority conservation projects as determined by the Federation."

Bequest Confirmation

When you have completed your will and included a provision for the B.C. Wildlife Federation, please let us know through our Bequest Confirmation Form so we can express our thanks.  With your permission, we will also list your name among the growing number of those who have provided legacy gifts to the B.C. Wildlife Federation.  Public acknowledgement of your commitment may inspire others to take that important next step in creating a legacy.

GIFTS OF SECURITIES

 

The BCWF welcomes support through donations of publicly listed securities (shares), whether they have increased or decreased in value. Thanks to tax law changes in 2006, Canadians who donate appreciated securities (including stocks, bonds and mutual funds) to a registered charity eliminate capital gains tax on the investment.  By doing this, donors can make a significant contribution to support the province-wide conservation efforts of the B.C. Wildlife Federation.  For more information, please contact Development Coordinator, at 1-888-881-2293 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

TRIBUTE GIVING

Honour a special celebration or the memory of a loved one by making a donation in their name to the B.C. Wildlife Federation.  Simply print off, complete, and return the Tribute Giving Donation Form together with your gift to the Federation.

WORKPLACE GIVING

Why not encourage your employer to establish a charity fund administered through a payroll deductions plan?  Or perhaps consider designating the B.C. Wildlife Federation as your Charity of Choice for your office fundraising activities?  The possibilities are endless!  For more information or assistance with your workplace fundraising initiatives, please contact Development Coordinator, at 1-888-881-2293 ext. 223 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

FUNDRAISER

Turn any occasion into a B.C. Wildlife Federation fundraising activity - and let your imagination run wild!  Why not organize a garage sale, bottle drive or raffle and donate the proceeds to the Federation.  We can assist you by providing promotional materials about our various conservation programs, projects and initiatives throughout the province.  Need help?  Contact Development Coordinator, at 1-888-881-2293 ext. 223 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
