Legacy & Giving

Legacy Gifts

Make Your Mark, legacy giving for the future of the visual arts – is the Vancouver Art Gallery's new legacy giving program, an integral component of our fundraising activities. This program provides opportunities for those who are interested in making a charitable gift to the Gallery through their will or other legacy giving options. A legacy gift provides the donor with tax benefits while ensuring the Gallery's leading role in enhancing Vancouver and British Columbia's reputation as a vibrant, creative, healthy and desirable place to live, work and visit.

Legacy gift donors are encouraged to have their plans reviewed by their professional advisors and by the Gallery.

All information pertaining to donors and donations received by the Foundation is considered absolutely confidential.

Named Endowments

If you are considering a gift of $250,000 or more, you may establish a named endowment fund through the Foundation. Named endowments may be established during your lifetime or through a bequest. You may create a general endowment that will provide vital support to all areas of the Gallery, allowing the Gallery to designate support to the areas of greatest need.

Alternatively, you may establish a special-purpose endowment in consultation with Gallery staff. Donors of named endowments will be acknowledged in perpetuity on the Gallery's Donor Recognition Wall. In addition, we welcome the opportunity to work with you to develop appropriate recognition specific to your particular gift.
