If your community has been good to you and for you, you probably want it to be equally good to and for others. You can think of it as paying back, but more accurately it’s a case of paying it forward — ensuring that those who follow enjoy some of the same opportunities, joys and advantages that you have.
DIVERSEcity exists to see that this can be so for the growing number of newcomers to Surrey, Langley, Delta and White Rock, and in fact for everyone who shares the community.
An easy way to do help us do this is by making a charitable donation as part of an estate plan. Significant tax incentives make gift planning even more attractive, particularly for gifts left in a will.
By doing so, you ensure your assets will help others into the future. Anyone can arrange to leave a charitable gift from their estate, regardless of its size. It can mean a great deal to a cause that is important to you.
Your financial planner, lawyer, accountant or insurance agent can help you leave a gift. These professionals can tell you about the tax benefits of planned gifts.
By making a charitable gift as part of an estate plan, individuals continue to help DIVERSEcity make an important difference in your community. When you leave a gift, you ensure that help continues to be there for those who need it.
As well, we’d love to talk to you about naming opportunities for gifts reaching certain thresholds. There is no better way to ensure your place in the community will be remembered than by helping to establish a program or facility that continues to make that community a better place.
