Legacy giving

Your legacy can include protecting the lands, waters, and wildlife of coastal British Columbia by leaving a bequest to Raincoast Conservation Foundation. Legacy giving, no matter the size, makes a tremendous difference to our work and could support our long-term initiatives in a number of ways such as Safeguarding Coastal Carnivores of the Great Bear Rainforest, supporting long-term coastal research, or creating an endowment for lasting habitat protection,restoration, and monitoring in globally rare forests.

There are two types of legacy gifts.

1. A residual gift

You can give all or a percentage of what is left of your estate to Raincoast, after all other gifts have been made to your loved ones. For example:

“I give to Raincoast Conservation Foundation, charitable number 889643565RR0001 ____ per cent of the residue of my estate.”

2. A specific gift 

You can donate a specific dollar amount or specific assets, such as a home or securities to Raincoast. For example: 

“I give to Raincoast Conservation Foundation, charitable number 889643565RR0001 the sum of $_______.
