Planned Giving

  • Bequests: A charitable request is a simple and thoughtful way to leave a legacy. Whether it is a set amount or a percentage of your estate, you can make a difference for generations to come. You can designate your gift to the organization or specific program.  The full value of the bequest will be considered a charitable donation for estate tax purposes.
  • Life Insurance: By naming SFF BC the beneficiary of a new or existing policy, you will receive a charitable tax receipt for your annual premiums and your estate will receive a larger charitable tax receipt for the total amount of your insurance benefits. This will help offset any taxes that would otherwise be payable at death.
  • RRSP/RRIF Funds: By naming SFF BC a beneficiary of some or all of your Registered Retirement Savings Plan(RRSP) or Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF). the charitable tax receipt will help offset the tax that would otherwise be payable on your final tax return.
  • Endowments: An endowment held in perpetuity can create a legacy to continue your tradition of annual gifts directed to SFF BCs programming endeavours.
  • Tributes/Legacy gifts: Create annual awards or lump sum legacy gift on behalf of a loved one, alumni, or science lover to make science, tech and innovation accessible to all youth in BC + Yukon.
  • Publicly Traded Securities: Appreciated shares donated to SFF BC are exempt from capital gains taxes and can be a very convenient, tax-effective way to support SFF BC.
