Matching Gifts

To double the impact of your gift, check with your Human Resources department to find out if your company has a Matching Gift Program.  

Workplace Giving

To provide ongoing support, consider setting up a regular deduction direct from your paycheque. If you select this option, we recommend you permit your employer to share your contact information with the Bill 7 Award Trust so we can keep in touch with you and let you know how your donation is creating opportunities for LGBTQ students.

Planned Giving & Bequests

A planned gift or bequest in your will may allow for a more significant gift than would otherwise be possible, without affecting your current income. Planned gifts may also result in immediate or deferred tax benefits.

A legacy gift of any size can be directed either to increase the Bill 7 Award trust fund, to provide scholarships to LGBTQ students, or to be handled at the discretion of the trustees.

Regardless of how your wishes are stipulated, leaving a gift to The Bill 7 Award Trust will create a lasting legacy to support current and future generations of LGBTQ students. Please note that when making a new will or changing your existing will, you should consult with an independent professional advisor such as a lawyer, financial planner or accountant.
