How to Help

Overview

Your gift to the Central Okanagan Land Trust will be a lasting legacy – through it you are supporting important conservation work and, at the same time, you are inspiring others to follow your leadership. Every gift is important to us at the Central Okanagan Land Trust, and there are a number of ways you can designate or assign your gift:

  • You may choose to designate your gift by identifying one of our priority projects.
  • You may wish to give your gift in memory of a loved one and we will notify the next of kin of your generous donation.
  • You can also give a donation in honour of a birthday, an anniversary, or an event such as a wedding and we will send a note letting them know about your donation.
  • You may wish to leave your gift undesignated and we will use your dollars where the need is greatest.

Gifts may be made and processed immediately, or it can be arranged for the Central Okanagan Land Trust to receive your gift at a future date. By selecting the right type of gift, you can maximize your tax advantage and the estate planning benefits of your donation. All eligible gifts as per Canada Revenue Agency guidelines are tax receipted.

Many gifts are simple to make; for some gifts however, we recommend that you seek advice from your professional legal and/or accounting advisor. We invite you to meet with a COLT Board member who will be pleased to discuss how we can meet your wishes.
