Deferred and legacy giving supports the students of tomorrow and often allows you to have a bigger impact. With your gift, you can be a part of a powerful experience for future students, enhancing their capacity to make a difference in the world.
Real Estate and Personal Property
UNBC may be able to receive donations of real property, art work or other items of personal value. Pre-approved gifts are eligible for a charitable receipt for the fair market value of the donation. Inquire with us regarding any gifts-in-kind such as books, equipment, or other items that can support teaching and research at UNBC.
Gifts of Securities (Shares)
Gifts of publicly traded securities can be received by UNBC. These gifts provide the additional benefit of being exempt from capital gains tax. You will receive a charitable tax receipt for the closing price of the day securities are received in UNBC’s account.
Planned or Legacy Giving
Planning today for a gift tomorrow will provide a meaningful and lasting impact that honours you and your family. Your gift has the potential to impact the future of the UNBC community and our students.
A planned gift can reduce tax obligations from your estate, leaving a greater legacy for your family and other charities. There are many ways to plan a gift:
• A bequest is a transfer of property through a will and can ensure your estate provides a specific contribution or a portion of its overall value to UNBC.
• You can name UNBC as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy, or name UNBC as the owner of a policy. When you pay premiums for a policy owned by the university, you will receive a charitable tax receipt from us.
• Consider naming UNBC as a beneficiary of any pension plans or registered assets you may have.
All donors of planned or deferred gifts will be recognized in the UNBC Heritage Circle. You will be invited to our annual Donor Appreciation Evening and receive our This Is UNBC magazine twice a year to keep you informed.
