Make a Gift for Conservation
With a gift to the Galiano Conservancy, you can show your support for Galiano’s natural places and for a vibrant, sustainable future for Galiano’s human and natural environment into the future.
Donations can be made for general mission support, Annual Giving Circle membership (see details below) or specified for land acquisition projects. Martine Paulin, our Development Coordinator, would be pleased to provide assistance with donations. You can contact her at 250-539-2424 or email her at email@example.com. The Conservancy provides tax receipts for donations over $10.
Charitable Registration number: 886092998 RR0001
Single or Monthly Gifts
Making a pre-authorized monthly gift to the Conservancy from your bank account or credit card provides a steady, reliable source of conservation funds that will be put to immediate use.
U.S. Donors can receive U.S. tax receipts by giving through the Friends of Vancouver Foundation program. Minimum gift of $1,000 in effect (as of Aug. 2018).
Annual Giving Circle
One of the keys to a strong foundation for any non-profit organization is a reliable source of unrestricted funding to maintain core services and address unanticipated needs and opportunities. Our Annual Giving Circle provides that strong foundation.
As a Giving Circle member, you enable the Conservancy to continue to have a significant impact and take on ambitious projects year after year.
We hope you will consider joining this special group of Conservancy supporters.
As an Annual Giving Circle member, you receive:
-An early invitation to special Conservancy events and promotions
-Free guided tours of properties of interest and Conservancy programs
-Listing of your name (or name in honour or memoriam) in Annual Report (optional)
-An invitation to our yearly supporter appreciation events
-10% discount on Conservancy merchandise, programs and workshops
-The satisfaction of knowing you are having a deep impact on the Conservancy’s core operations
The Giving Circle program is based on financial support at four levels – Salish Sea Circle ($3,000+/yr.), Arbutus Circle ($1,000-$2,999/yr.), Camas Circle ($500-$999/yr.) and Sea Blush Circle ($250-$499/yr.).
Your gift can be made through monthly installments or with a single annual contribution by cheque, cash or online. All gifts are tax deductible. For offline monthly giving, our Donation Form can be sent with a void cheque.
Leave a legacy of hope for the lands and waters of Galiano. Legacy gifts can be made in many ways. Please contact us for a free copy of our Legacy Guide to Giving, to discuss your legacy giving goals, or to join our Legacy Circle.
In Honour or Memoriam
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. Please contact us if you are interested in memorial recognition in the form of plaques, benches, naming and more. We would be pleased to work with you to find the most meaningful recognition for your loved ones’ passion for nature and love of Galiano.
For your special day, give the gift of nature for Galiano. Snapshot Story: When Kate and Keith were getting married, they decided that instead of gifts they would invite friends to donate 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!
Give a gift of securities or assets
Ask about making a gift of securities rather than cash/cheque to receive very favourable tax incentives. 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.
Support our Endowment Fund at the Vancouver Foundation
In 2008 the Galiano Conservancy Association established the Galiano Conservancy Association Endowment Fund at the Vancouver Foundation. Donations to this fund will go on giving forever. Thank you for your generosity, every gift is invaluable in supporting our work in perpetuity.
