4-H is considered by some to be Canada's premier youth development organization. Now, more than ever, it is vital that we provide accessibility to programming that connects young people with agriculture and food production, and helps them to maintain a strong sense of our rural roots. A legacy gift to 4-H BC Foundation is a gift to the future leaders of the communities in which we live, work and play. Legacy giving can also deliver significant advantages to you and your heirs including:
Satisfaction - Knowing that you are giving back to an organization that holds special significance for you.
Control - Reducing the risk that your wishes will be hindered by circumstances beyond your control.
Peace of Mind - Ensuring that family and financial matters are resolved privately.
Convenience - Putting your investment in the hands of professional managers, so you don't have to worry about ongoing decisions.
Security - Finalizing your charitable choices now, instead of later - or never. Too many people postpone their wishes or never realize them.
Financial - Lowering your current taxes and/or lowering the taxes your estate will be required to pay by making donations to a registered charitable organization such as the 4-H BC Foundation. These decisions should be discussed with an accountant, lawyer or financial advisor prior to proceeding with any major donations.
