Charitable Will Bequests

Making a Charitable Will Bequest to the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria is a wonderful way to leave a gift that will bring art to life for generations to come.

Will Bequests provide the opportunity to make a significant charitable gift, which may not always be possible during one’s lifetime.

What are the Advantages of making a Bequest?

  • Reduced Taxes - A charitable gift is an effective method to reduce taxes. A tax receipt will be issued for the full value of your bequest. This receipt can then be used to reduce the tax payable on your final tax return.
  • Flexible and Revocable - A charitable bequest can be made for any amount. It is revocable at any time should your financial situation change.
  • Private - Your will is not filed or made public until death.
  • Does Not Affect Current Income - A bequest will not affect your assets or your cash flow while you are alive.
