The Horse Protection Society of BC benefits through endowments already set up with Vancouver Foundation.
1. The Horse Protection Society Endowment Fund is a permanent fund with annual income going directly to the Society. The capital in this fund can never be accessed and the fund cannot be broken. This is a very conservative way to donate to the support of the horses.
2. The Guild Fund for Horses is a non-permanent fund that provides limited access to the fund when necessary. This is an excellent way to ensure that the Society has a financial safety net at all times.
Donation may be made to either or both funds at any time including, but not limited to, legacy gifts such as wills, life insurance, investments/shares or other planned gifts.
Vancouver Foundation is available to support planned giving efforts with access to a range of estate services and expertise from their professional and knowledgeable staff. They will answer questions on planned giving, explain the various legacy gift options, meet with HPS and our donors, and assist with stewardship efforts. . These services are offered at no cost to the donor or to HPS.
