Planned Giving

We accept gifts of any size, and are grateful to be a part of your plans. A legacy gift of any amount to Music on Main represents an investment in Vancouver’s musical future.

Music on Main intends for its future to be as bright as its past. We now accept planned and estate gifts. Giving options include bequests, publicly traded securities, and naming Music on Main as a charitable beneficiary in your will or endowment. Many of these options offer significant tax advantages to you and your family.

We would be pleased to discuss these giving options in greater detail. Although regulations in British Columbia make it easy to add to your existing will, we suggest you work with your lawyer, financial planner, or accountant as you make your decision. This will help to ensure that your gift is in accord with your financial and charitable goals, and that it clearly expresses your wishes.

If you have included Music on Main in your will, please let us know so that we can recognize your generosity. We accept gifts of any size, and are grateful to be a part of your plans. A legacy gift of any size to Music on Main represents an investment in Vancouver’s musical future.

If you’re looking to make a planned gift to Music on Main, please take note of the following recommended bequest wordings to be shared with your estate and financial planners.

For more information, please contact Joseph Bardsley via email, or by phone at 604.879.9888.

Specific Bequest

You donate a specific dollar amount or piece of property, such as real estate, stocks, bonds or musical instruments. “I give the sum of (bequest amount or description of other property) to Music on Main to be used for such of the objects and purposes as the Board of Directors shall from time to time determine.”

Residual Bequest

You donate all or a portion of your estate to the beneficiary after your debts have been paid: “I give the residue of my estate (or percentage of the residue of my estate) to Music on Main to be used for such of the purposes as the Board of Directors shall from time to time determine.”

Contingent Bequest

Your gift takes effect only if the primary intention cannot be met (e.g., if the primary and alternate beneficiaries do not survive the donor): “If neither (name of primary beneficiary) nor (name of alternate beneficiary) survives me for 30 days, then I give (describe amount of cash, property, percentage of residue or other gift) to Music on Main to be used for such of the objects and purposes as the Board of Directors shall from time to time determine.”
