Legacy Giving

The Benefit of Legacy Giving

Legacy giving is a wonderful way to support the things you care about most, now and after you're gone. For many donors, it's also an important part of their estate planning and exemplifies the vision and forethought of their philanthropic beliefs. Also, by including charitable gifts in your estate planning, you may eliminate significant taxes payable upon your death.

Whatever your reason, creating a legacy gift for BC Children's Hospital Foundation provides vital funding towards patient programs, equipment purchases, research and education to benefit future generations of BC's kids.

Ways to Give

There are almost as many variations on ways to make a legacy gift as there are needs to be met.

Your donation may be outright, providing funds for immediate use, or it may be planned now for a future date.
