Legacy gifts and planned giving

Providing for a future gift to the BC Civil Liberties Association is an opportunity to advance the values that have been most important to you in your life.

What is a legacy gift?

A legacy gift is a gift you plan now that will benefit the BCCLA in the future.

Legacy gifts are an incredible way to boost your capacity to support charities of choice because they allow you to potentially contribute more than at any other time in your life. Leaving a gift in your will allows people of any financial means to provide long-term support to civil liberties and human rights in Canada.

The two most popular legacy options are setting up a gift in your will (a bequest) and life insurance. Legacy gifts can be in any amount and can also take the form of real estate, appreciated securities, retirement plans, art or trusts.

When arranging a gift to the BCCLA in your will, the most important thing is to use our proper legal name and charitable registration number:

  • British Columbia Civil Liberties Association
  • 306-268 Keefer Street, Vancouver British Columbia, V6A 1X5
  • Registered charity #: 888466844RR0001

Please let us know if you have already arranged a legacy gift or if you would like to learn more about this opportunity to maximize your support of the BCCLA.
