Tribute Giving

  • Special Occasion: A Special Occasion Gift is a unique opportunity to let family members, friends or colleagues know that you are thinking of them on a birthday, anniversary, graduation, retirement or other memorable occasion. We will gladly send a card to the individual(s) being honoured, acknowledging their special occasion and your thoughtfulness.

  • In Memoriam: An In Memoriam Gift is a caring way to express sympathy and to honour someone's memory. We would be happy to send an acknowledgement to the family.

    If you are making arrangements for a loved one, we would be happy to provide In Memoriam cards to the funeral home. Please call the office at the number noted above.

Planned Giving

  • A legacy or planned gift is a charitable gift made from your estate and a commitment to the future. These deferred gifts can help you make the most of your assets while, at the same time, sustain your passion for Guiding by making a powerful impact on the lives of girls and young women for future generations.

    A planned gift comes in many forms and is primarily pledged as a gift through a will. Examples of planned gifts include:
  • A bequest is a gift made through your will. Your gift to GGC-British Columbia Council through your estate planning will make a lasting contribution to the Guiding Movement in British Columbia. A bequest can be a specific amount or a percentage of your estate and it can reduce the tax payable on your final tax return.
  • A gift of stocks may also be made through your will. All stock donations are converted to cash upon receipt by GGC-British Columbia Council.
  • A gift of life insurance allows you the opportunity to make a significant contribution to Guiding for a fairly small annual payment. You can transfer ownership of a policy to GGC-British Columbia Council and receive a full tax receipt for the accumulated cash value. You could also designate GGC-British Columbia Council as the beneficiary of an insurance policy while retaining ownership of the policy, offering your estate tax benefits.

Girl Guides of Canada - British Columbia Council encourages all donors who are planning a significant gift to seek independent legal and/or financial planning advice.
