In Honour Donations are a wonderful way to express your gratitude or celebrate a special occasion while making a difference in the lives of those with developmental disabilities. To acknowledge your donation, a letter will be sent to the individual on your behalf acknowledging that you have made a gift to L'Arche Foundation of Greater Vancouver in her or his honour.

Top Ten Ways To Leave a Legacy*

  1. Prepare a Will. A Will is a document that gives you power to decide how your money is to be spent. Without a Will, you lose control over how your property is distributed.
  2. Leave a gift in your Will for the not-for-profits and charities that made a difference in your life. Unfortunately, most people have not included charities in their Wills. Imagine the positive impact on our community if we all gave even a small bequest to a favourite cause. Share this information with your family. Let them know how important it is to you.
  3. Leave a specific dollar amount to the charity of your choice.
  4. Leave a percentage of your estate to your favourite charity. A legacy does not have to be a specific dollar amount in cash. Consider giving assets such as GICs, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, art, jewellery, and vehicles.
  5. Name your favourite charity as owner and beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy.
  6. Purchase a new life insurance policy and name your favourite charity as owner and beneficiary.
  7. Name L'Arche Foundation of Greater Vancouver as a beneficiary of your RRSP or RRIF.
  8. Remember loved ones with memorial gifts.
  9. Encourage family and friends to leave gifts to favourite charities in their Wills.
  10. Ask your financial advisor how a charitable gift can be used to lower your estate tax.
