Many British Columbians have a personal connection to BCIT. They may be graduates of our programs, parents of BCIT grads, employers, or BCIT staff and faculty too. Whatever their connection, they share a common understanding of how a BCIT education helps students build pathways for career success – and this understanding often extends to making a gift to support BCIT.
As a donor, you can play an important role in shaping the future of BCIT and our graduates through planned giving.
Bequests – invest in the future
One of the most popular and universal ways to establish a gift is through a bequest. By designating BCIT as a beneficiary in your will, you can create a lasting legacy for the future without diminishing your assets today.
In your will, you can designate a specific amount of money, a piece of property, a percentage or portion of your estate to support BCIT, or you can leave the “residue” of your estate. Publicly traded securities—shares, bonds, mutual funds—can also be designated as your gift.
Your lawyer or advisor can ensure that you provide for your spouse or loved ones first before funds are allocated to a charitable cause. Your estate will be issued a tax receipt for the value of your gift.
