    When you include Vancouver Rape Relief as beneficiary
     in your will, your estate receives a tax deduction on the final income tax return;

  • Name Vancouver Rape Relief as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
    You can receive Income Tax receipts for the premiums on the policy, or you 
    mayassign fully paid life insurance policies and receive a tax benefit. Your insurance advisor and/or financial advisor will be able to make and advise you on all aspects of the use of life insurance policies for charitable giving.

  • Establish a Trust Fund
    A trust fund would pay interest, generate a tax credit and eventually benefit Vancouver Rape Relief. When you establish a Living Trust (there are several ways to do this) and make Vancouver Rape Relief the residual beneficiary, you receive the interest on your money and also receive a significant tax benefit. Your financial advisor can assist you to make and assess the value of this type of donation.
