Planned Giving is often descirbed as “leaving a legacy” because planned gifts are created to make an impact for future generations.  

It is surprisingly easy to arrange a planned gift and we are happy to help answer answer any questions you may have. Though more sophisticated gifts will require more care, many methods are quite straightforward. Whatever the method, you can plan your gift to maximise your objectives. A Planned Gift can:

  • give you a tax advantage (often the tax benefits are quite substantial)
  • fit appropriately with your estate plans and concerns for heirs
  • compliment your lifestyle goals
  • match your wish to leave a legacy to the cause you care about.

Planned Gifts can be made easily and securely through the Community Foundation of the the North Okanagan or, through Canada Helps.
