Leave A Legacy

Giving to the charitable causes that matter most to you during your lifetime is a meaningful and powerful way for you to express your personal values and priorities. Remembering your most cherished causes in your estate plan is a way for you to ensure that the support you gave during your lifetime can continue and that future generations will benefit from your generosity.

One of the easiest ways to ensure your vision of a strong community is by naming the Inter-Cultural Association as a beneficiary in your will or living trust. Here is sample language you can use:

“I give, devise, and bequeath to the Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria, the sum of $________(or a percentage of your estate).

Other ways you can leave a legacy for immigrants and refugees:

  • Gifts, real estate or other property you own;
  • Naming ICA as a beneficiary of your retirement or insurance plans;
  • Making ICA the beneficiary of bank accounts using the Payable on Death or Transferable on Death designations; or
  • Donate assets such as art, jewelry or real estate

Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria is a registered nonprofit.

Our Charitable Tax Registration Number is 107509838RR0001.

We encourage you to consult your professional advisor on the best way to ensure your wishes are clarified and any possible tax or legal advantages are made possible.

Let Us Know

While it is not always necessary, if you have already named the Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria in your estate plans, we would be grateful to know.
