Leaving a Legacy Gift for CapU

We would be happy to have the opportunity to meet with you over coffee to provide information for your consideration when making a legacy in your will to CapU.

We're here to help. There are a number of options to choose from, some of which are listed below.

Legacy gift options

Leave a remarkable impact by including a gift in your will.

Your generosity will provide vital support to future students, ensuring they have the resources they need to succeed.

Making a gift in your will, whether it's a specific, residual, or contingent gift, offers a range of meaningful benefits.

Specific gifts Such as a particular piece of property or a sum of money, allows you to leave a lasting legacy to Capilano University, ensuring our wishes are carried out precisely.
Residual gifts Permits you to allocate a percentage of your estate after other bequests and expenses, which can be flexible to accommodate any changes in your circumstances over time.
Contingent gifts Come into effect only if certain conditions are met, ensuring that your estate is distributed according to your preferences, even in unforeseen situations.

In all cases, making a gift in your will grants you a sense of control over your legacy and the opportunity to support CapU in a meaningful way, leaving a positive impact that extends beyond your lifetime.

Designating a portion of RRSPs, RRIFs, TFSAs Maximize your giving potential by designating a portion of your retirement accounts or Tax-Free Savings Accounts. This thoughtful gesture allows you to contribute to CapU while optimizing your tax benefits.
Securities Donating stocks, bonds, or mutual funds can be a strategic way to support CapU. You'll not only make a difference but also potentially enjoy tax advantages resulting from the appreciation of these assets.
