A bequest through a will is simple and straightforward. By including United Way in your will, you can create a lasting legacy to perpetuate your tradition of annual gifts to support your community. Gifts of a specific cash amount or asset or a percentage of the remaining estate are popular bequest choices. Your estate receives a donation receipt for the value of your gift, providing a tax credit to reduce tax otherwise payable on your final tax return.

Unless otherwise directed by the donors, United Way BC places all gifts received by bequests where it is needed the most.
