Leave a Legacy

Include Vancouver Rape Relief in your will

When you include Vancouver Rape Relief as beneficiary in your will, your estate receives a tax deduction on the final income tax return

Name Vancouver Rape Relief as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy

Your insurance advisor and/or financial advisor will be able to make and advise you on all aspects of the use of life insurance policies for charitable giving. You can receive Income Tax receipts for the premiums on the policy, or you may assign fully paid life insurance policies and receive a tax benefit.

Establish a Trust Fund

A trust fund would pay interest, generate a tax credit and eventually benefit Vancouver Rape Relief. When you establish a Living Trust (there are several ways to do this) and make Vancouver Rape Relief the residual beneficiary, you receive the interest on your money and also receive a significant tax benefit. Your financial advisor can assist you to make and assess the value of this type of donation.

Tin Can Fundraising

One Saturday each month you will see our men and women volunteers on a street corner with their bold signs, asking for donations in their tin cans. Thank you for donating when you see these volunteers in your neighbourhood ! Contact us to get involved as a volunteer.

When you donate your car will either be recycled or sold at auction depending on its condition, age and location.
