The Coastal Foundation for the Performing Arts allows donors to create a stable fund for art and artists in British Columbia, while also providing longer-term stability for its parent Society. In an era of major changes in the industry, static public funding, and a challenging environment for corporate dollars and risk capital, establishing and growing the Foundation is critical to the Society’s responsibilities to the community, and to the unforeseen needs of the community the Foundation may address with its contributors beyond the Society itself.
You can be a part of this growth in stability, by becoming part of the long-term legacy of the Foundation. The Foundation welcomes gifts of cash, stock, securities, and other investments. Restricted fund opportunities are available within the Foundation for larger gifts, enabling the donor to create a legacy for themselves and their families.
The Foundation will work with you and your financial advisor to discuss your interests and personal tax planning needs and requirements, while also ensuring your wishes with regard to your gift are respected and treasured.
