Donation Options:

Set up a monthly donation to Galiano Conservancy. Making a pre-authorized monthly gift to the Conservancy from your bank account provides a steady, reliable source of conservation funds that will be put to immediate use. Contact us to make arrangements.This is a great option for those who don’t have a lot of ready cash, but still want to help us secure the purchase of these properties by paying off our loans – for as little as a dollar a day.

2- Make a Charitable Donation:

Donations can be specified for certain projects or areas of preferred. You can donate by cash, cheque, or via CanadaHelps online (through our website).

As a registered charitable organization, the Conservancy provides tax receipts for donations. We encourage all donations over $20 to be made by cheque, if possible, as there is a percentage-based processing fee for online donations.

Our Charitable Registration number is: BN886092998 RR0001

If you prefer, you can donate online through Canada Help’s service by clicking Donate Now.

3- Give a gift of securities:

Ask about making a gift of securities rather than cash/cheque to receive very favourable tax incentives.

4- Give Assets

Give assets, including non-ecological land, to the Conservancy. The fair market value of the gift will be determined, the gift sold, and the funds used by the Conservancy for its programs. Note that gifts of ecological land will be considered differently and may be eligible for tax advantages through the Ecological Gifts program.

5- Make a Legacy Gift

  • Create a legacy gift, such as a bequest, and/or gift of securities, life insurance or land.
  • see our information on legacy gift options.

6- Give in honor of a loved one or special time

Have you thought of honouring someone or commemorating a loved one? When a commemorative donation is made, a card goes to the family, next of kin, or recipient you wish to recognize.

Snapshot Story: When Kate and Keith were getting married in 2007, they decided that instead of gifts they would invite friends to make a donation to the Great Beaver Swamp project. More than $10,000 was donated towards the campaign to buy one of Galiano’s most precious areas. Thank you Kate & Keith! 
(For details see the “In the News” article.)
