Pledging Give over time.

Looking for a more long-term option? Why not make a pledge - a promise to donate a specified amount and make payments towards it over a period of time (of up to five years). Payments may be made using cash, credit cards, securities, or other assets. Pledges, through interest and time, often become greater than the sum of its parts. It's a great way to increase your impact and start building a lasting legacy. 

Contact the foundation@langara.ca to learn more about making a pledge.

Tribute Giving Recognize special people and milestones in your life.

Want to recognize someone special  and/or celebrate a major milestones? Why not make a gift in honour of or in memoriam.

In Kind Giving Make non-cash donations.

Do you have a valuable collection of books or memorabilia? Are you able to donate equipment or other supplies that Langara could use? If so, you could make a gift-in-kind donation. A gift-in-kind is a non-cash donation and includes items such as personal effects, artwork and real estate. Langara will gladly accept any gifts-in-kind for which there is a use on campus. Once the gift is appraised, a donation receipt will be issued for the fair market value of the gift.  For more info:

Planned Giving Create a lasting legacy through wills, trusts, insurance, RRSP/RRIP, pensions, and securities.

Planned giving is a wonderful way to ensure that your long-term philanthropic goals are met. Planned gifts come all shapes and sizes. Here are a few easy and effective ways to create a lasting legacy:

Wills and Trusts

Making provisions in your estate plans is a very personal and forward thinking way to support Langara. The process of leaving a gift to Langara in your will  or trust is established by specific clauses drafted by your legal council. We would be happy to work with you and your advisors to develop a gift plan that is personally meaningful but also brings maximum benefit to Langara. Langara has established some sample clauses to assist you in your planning. 

View sample clauses for your gifts to Langara

Gift of Insurance

There are three ways in which to give life insurance can be used to support Langara: naming Langara as a beneficiary or donating a new or existing policy to Langara. Naming Langara College Foundation as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy provides your estate with tax benefits. If you designate Langara College Foundation as the owner and beneficiary of your policy, tax benefits may also be realized today.

View sample clauses for your gifts to Langara.

RRSP/ RRIP and Pension Plans

Naming Langara as a beneficiary of your RRSP, RRIF or pension plan means all or a portion of these assets can be left directly to the College upon your death without having to pass through your estate. This arrangement means that no probate fees are payable on these assets. Donations of this type are a great way to reduce the substantial deferred tax burden that many RRSP and RRIF plans carry.

Gifts of Securities

Many people hold various securities, including shares, bonds, mutual funds and stock options. When people choose to directly donate such funds from publicly trades securities to a registered Canadian charity (rather than selling the securities first, then donating the proceeds) there is an elimination of capital gains. The result is an immediate donation receipt for you for fair market value as of the date the Foundation receives those funds. We suggest you consult with your professional advisor before making a gift of publicly trades securities.

For more information, please contact foundation@langara.ca

Corporate Matching Take advantage of employer matching gift programs to double your impact.

Many companies (see list below) offer programs that match their employees' contributions to non-profit organizations. It's a great way to double your donation's impact. Make sure to check with your company for matching gift program policies, criteria, and processes.
