Planned Giving

Gift Planning helps you achieve your financial goals while also supporting the meaningful work of the Vancouver Maritime Museum.

Planning a gift for the future will bring you benefits immediately.

You can create your own legacy by contributing to something that has personal meaning and brings lasting memories for generations. Gift Planning helps you achieve your financial goals while also supporting the meaningful work of the Vancouver Maritime Museum.

The museum relies on donations to support both its collections and its many programs.  Not only are you supporting the museum by creating a meaningful and lasting legacy, but a planned gift can also help you to:

  • Reduce Taxes on your Estate
  • Provide Income for Life
  • Eliminate Tax on Capital Gains
  • Commemorate a Loved One  

We strongly recommend that donors seek professional advice from their legal and financial advisors when considering making a planned gift. Your lawyer will craft the Will clause language to meet your needs, and your financial advisor will be able to advise you as to the most tax effective way to make this gift.  The museum has partnered with ZLC Financial Group and we are happy to meet with you and explore options.

The Vancouver Maritime Museum will recognize your gift in a way that meets your individual needs and will go to the program of your choice or the programs of greatest need which gives our team the flexibility to advance in new directions and pursue promising exhibits.

If you are considering making a planned gift to the museum or would like more information please contact:
