Leave a legacy

Legacy giving triggers charitable tax credits which, depending on the structure of your gift, can benefit you now or reduce the taxes owed by your estate in the future. Your gift can be structured to minimize or even eliminate the taxable impact on your beneficiaries, allowing more of your money to go to your loved ones.

Learn about simple and beneficial ways to leave a lasting legacy of compassion. Some options available to you include:

  • A specific or residual gift in your Will
  • A gift of registered funds such as RRSPs, RRIFs or TFSAs
  • A gift of life insurance
  • A gift of real property
  • A charitable gift annuity

When exploring opportunities for your legacy gift, we recommend you speak with your financial advisor or lawyer to determine which option is most suitable for you.

For additional information please call 250-339-5533.

Donate securities

Donating securities or other assets to Comox Valley Hospice Society is a giving strategy that suits your needs and maximizes tax advantages.

If you own securities that have appreciated in value, selling them will incur capital gains taxes. But, by gifting your securities, you avoid these taxes and receive a charitable tax receipt for the value of the shares on the date that ownership is transferred to Comox Valley Hospice. The shares will then be liquidated, and the proceeds of the sale used to fund Comox Valley Hospice Society’s programs and services.

This form of giving can be used for gifts you wish to make now or for legacy gifts by designating specific shares or a percentage of your portfolio to be donated to Comox Valley Hospice Society in your Will.

Contact 250-339-5533 and we can provide your broker with all the information they need to transfer the shares for you.

Corporate matching gifts

Many donors work for companies with matching gift programs. If you think you might be interested check first with your human resources department and ask if your company matches employee donations.

If your company does have a match program, request the matching gift form or download it from your workplace intranet.

Be sure to review the program guidelines and confirm that Comox Valley Hospice Society is eligible for corporate matching gifts.

Complete the necessary form and mail it to:

Comox Valley Hospice Society
102- 1509 Cliffe Avenue,
Courtenay, BC V9N 2K6

Your company will arrange to send its matching donation directly to Comox Valley Hospice Society and we will handle the rest.

For additional information please call 250-339-5533.
