Wills and Bequests
Bequests may come in the form of a percentage of your estate, specific cash amount, property, securities or other assets. A charitable bequest has no effect on you financially in your lifetime and is one of the simplest and most flexible ways to create a lasting legacy.
A bequest is a lasting gift from the heart with practical benefits to your surviving heirs. Your estate receives a tax receipt for the full amount of the donation, which may offset capital gains or other taxes due. You may designate the gift to specific programs, or allow the Crisis Centre to put it to work where most needed at the time.
Leaving a bequest to The Crisis Centre will help keep the Distress Lines open, enhance our online services for youth, and continue to provide our Community Learning and Engagement Program of Stress Management and Suicide Awareness interactive workshops to high school students. Please consider becoming a Crisis Centre Legacy Partner as an essential part of your estate planning strategy.
If you have completed your will and left a provision for the Crisis Centre, please let us know through our Bequest Confirmation Form so we can express our thanks and properly plan for your future gift.
It’s easier than you may think
All it takes is a simple clause in your will to leave a gift of hope to the Crisis Centre – and continue transforming lives long after you’ve gone. Your lawyer can include a simple clause naming the Crisis Centre as a beneficiary. Naming the Crisis Centre in your will is an ideal way to build a legacy. You’ll make a significant and meaningful difference in your community without feeling any financial impact in your lifetime.
The following are two samples of clauses you can include in your will in order to leave a legacy to the Crisis Intervention and Suicide Prevention Centre of British Columbia:
