DONATING TO NELSON COMMUNITY SERVICES

While 90% of NCS’ programs and services are provided under contracts with BC Government ministries, we rely heavily on the generosity of foundations, trusts, and the people of our community to support the balance of our work. Your donation allow us to reach so many more families, individuals and youth and offer them real life enhancing (and sometimes lifesaving) supports. You may want to consider making a financial or security donation or a Legacy Gift by leaving a bequest in someone’s name. We are very happy to speak with you more about how to do that.

We have made it easy for you to donate to NCS — come in to our office and write us a cheque (or give us cash), or through Canada Helps, a safe, secure, online service.

We are a registered charity under the federal Charities Act. All donations and bequests will be formally acknowledged in writing to the donor, and all donations over $20.00 will be officially tax receipted.

Leaving a Legacy…
is very simple, as simple as planning to make a gift.

Planned gifts are generally funded from accumulated resources or assets, rather than income.
The most common Planned Gift received by the NCS is a Bequest.
The tax benefit from a Bequest accrues to the donor’s estate.

You can designate your Legacy Gift to our three noted funds that encompass all the various programs and expenses of Nelson Community Services —
the possibilities are abundant and rich with the excitement of giving!
