CPAWS-BC works hard to maximize the proportion of revenue spent on work to protect land, ocean and wildlife. Our goal is a sustainable financial foundation for conservation efforts, and the sustained protection of BC’s land and seascapes.
When you make a gift of securities to CPAWS, you are joining the fight to protect biodiversity across British Columbia. When publicly traded securities are transferred to a registered charity, the tax on capital gains is eliminated, and you may receive a tax receipt for the full amount of your gift. We encourage you to speak to a financial adviser to determine the details of your donation.
Divest and Donate for Nature
In the face of a global climate crisis, it is no longer possible to deny the need to embrace renewable energy and a carbon neutral future. Powerful investors like New York City, the Republic of Ireland, and numerous universities and foundations have already stepped away from dirty investments like fossil-fuel extraction. You can divest assets such as stocks and mutual funds by donating them to CPAWS, and put your money to good use: defending clean water, fresh air, and the spectacular land and seascape that make British Columbia beautiful.
For more information on gifts of securities, please contact Sarah McNeil, Development Manager at email@example.com or 604-685-7445 ext 33.
When it comes to protecting nature and providing refuge for wildlife, timelines are measured in years, decades, or even longer. Parks and protected areas are a legacy for future generations, one that you can be a part of.
Leaving a bequest or planned gift to CPAWS for work in British Columbia means that you are remembered as a protector of nature without impacting your financial security today. Making a bequest can be as simple as including a single phrase in your will or estate plan, or a more nuanced approach involving property or other assets. We recommend contacting your financial planner or lawyer to find a path that works best for you and your loved ones.
Sample wording: I give the sum of $________ (or an amount equal to ____%) of my estate to the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society for its work in British Columbia.
