We are blessed to live in this environmentally rich part of the world. Since 1979, the Wildlife Rescue Association of British Columbia has been committed to saving the lives of injured or orphaned wild animals and expanding public awareness for living compatibly with our nature neighbours. Intentional gift planning has ensured the professional care of over 140,000 animals.
More than 32,000 calls from the community come into Wildlife Rescue’s Support Centre every year seeking assistance for wildlife at risk. As a result, we have become an international leader as the busiest wildlife centre in Western Canada.
Your legacy gift enables our team to respond to the increasing demand for wildlife impacted by humans encroaching on native habitats. Your support makes it possible to continue providing exceptional care by giving wildlife a second chance to live their natural lives.
Does the health and wellbeing of local wildlife align with your core values? If so, we are here to support your gift planning for your community’s wildlife.
Here are some benefits of including Wildlife Rescue in your gift planning:
By including Wildlife Rescue in your gift planning, you continue to help save injured or orphaned animals today and forever. Without a Will, your property and finances are settled according to federal and provincial laws which may not coincide with your wishes and values. Everyone can leave a charitable gift from their estate, regardless of its size. Every gift helps to provide injured or orphaned wildlife a second chance.
We recommend that you speak with your financial advisor, and work with a lawyer or notary to take you through the gift planning process to support the right decisions for you and your family. These professionals can also talk to you about the tax benefits of these gifts that would mean so much to wildlife.
If you are considering a legacy gift to Wildlife Rescue and are uncertain how to begin, we are here to support you. We can provide basic guidance, review opportunities, and help you align your values with helping wildlife.
While Wildlife Rescue does not provide specific advice on how to make legacy gifts, we can provide you with gift planning opportunities and information you will need.
