Why do our regional parks need your support?

Your support is needed to meet these challenges:

  • Urban sprawl and intensification of urban development
  • Increased population pressure
  • Dramatic rise in number of visitors annually
  • Invasive species of plants and animals
  • Threats of fires, vandalism etc.

Our tax dollars only go so far. Just as with hospitals and universities, there’s a gap between the services we want and what the government can provide. That’s where community support and the Pacific Parklands Foundation comes in. Join us and together we can bridge this gap in funding and help turn good parks into GREAT parks.

We have so many things to do in our regional parks

Our relationship with Metro Vancouver and how we use your donations

Our long-time, committed friends at Metro Vancouver Regional Parks are a vital fund raising resource for Pacific Parklands Foundation. A portion of our annual budget comes from a generous annual contribution from Metro Vancouver while the remainder is raised through the generosity of individuals and corporate donors. PPF is incredibly grateful for this ongoing support and as a result we have some of the lowest administration costs in the charitable sector – virtually all of your donation goes directly to support and enhance your regional parks.

Members of our Metro Vancouver family serve as volunteers on our Board and sit on committees working alongside other members in our community. In addition to volunteering their time, Metro Vancouver staff help Pacific Parklands Foundation deliver their mission by supporting events and fundraising initiatives.

Give today and protect these treasures for the future.

Pacific Parklands Foundation Support Us Other Ways to Give

Other Ways to Give

Gifts in Kind

We gratefully accept gifts in kind that can be used within the Metro Vancouver Regional Parks. These might include real estate, equipment, artifacts and other tangible items. You will receive a tax receipt for the appraised fair market value of the gift, and, if you wish, you’ll be recognized in our donor list, our annual reports and our website.

Future Interest in Real Estate

If you give Pacific Parklands Foundation a future interest in real estate that you own, you can continue to own and enjoy your property as you always have for a specific period or for the rest of your life. Upon your passing or at the end of the agreed-upon period, the Foundation automatically becomes full owner of the property.

Life Insurance

Are you at a stage in your life where you don’t need all the life insurance you bought when you were raising a family or had other significant costs to cover? You could consider putting the extra life insurance to work for the Pacific Parklands Foundation. You can transfer ownership and beneficiary status of an existing or new life insurance policy and choose which park or project your gift will support and you’ll receive a tax receipt equal to the cash surrender value of the policy and the premiums.

Charitable Remainder Trusts and RRSP/RRIF Funds

We will be happy to help you work out the details of any type of donation, including a charitable remainder trust. You can apply your tax receipt against current and future income and you’ll continue to receive the income earned by the capital during your lifetime. Or, designate the Pacific Parklands Foundation as the direct beneficiary on an RRSP or RRIF form for an easy deferred gift with many benefits.

Annuities

When you purchase a charitable insured annuity, a portion of your annuity income will be used to fund an insurance policy with Pacific Parklands Foundation as its named owner and beneficiary. With a charitable gift annuity, a portion of your gift is used to purchase an annuity for you while the rest goes directly to Pacific Parklands Foundation as a gift.
