Be a visionary leader for a just and sustainable future
Passionate CCPA supporters in BC have stepped forward and expressed their vision for the future by making a deeply meaningful gift to the CCPA in their estate plans.
What is legacy giving?
A legacy gift is a charitable donation that you arrange now that will benefit the CCPA in the future. Your legacy represents the values meaningful to you during your lifetime. Whether your estate is large or small, a gift to the CCPA in your will can leave a lasting impact. Gifts may take the form of bequests, trusts, life insurance policies, stocks, real estate or retirement plans.
How will the CCPA use my gift?
We will use your gift to help make our vision of a socially, economically and environmentally just future a reality. We aim to make progressive ideas the driving force behind mainstream thinking, and to offer a new and hopeful vision to meet the key challenges of our time.
Long-involved in progressive social causes, Carole
Christopher and Rick Pollay joined The Visionaries to
make “a contribution to the future well-being
of our society and planet.”
With your gift, we will provide bold, innovative and accessible public policy analysis and solutions for British Columbians. We will publish research, play a high-profile role in public policy debates, build the capacity of social change movements, create alliances, engage diverse communities in progressive policy development, and mentor the next generation of public intellectuals.
How does it work?
We encourage you to support the future work of the CCPA both nationally and in BC. To ensure the BC Office receives a portion of a legacy gift, you must specifically name the CCPA-BC Office as a beneficiary, for example:
I give to the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, charitable registration number 12414 6473 RR 0001, _______% of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate to be used for the following if applicable at the time the gift is received: _______ % to the BC Office and _______ % to the National Office.
I give to the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, charitable registration number 12414 6473 RR 0001, $______ of my estate to be used for the following if applicable at the time the gift is received: _______% to the BC Office and _______% to the National Office.
We would be grateful to know if you have planned a legacy gift to the CCPA. This will help us continue to build our community of progressive Visionaries, and will allow us to send you special updates and invitations to social gatherings.
How are donors recognized?
People who make a planned gift become members of a special group of supporters called The Visionaries who have made economic, social, and environmental justice a part of their personal vision and legacy. Visionaries can choose to be publicly recognized for their contribution or keep their legacy gift anonymous.
