    In Memory/In Honour

    You can make a gift to First Funds Society in memory or in honour of someone you care about. This is a special way of paying tribute to a loved one by helping the Aboriginal community in their name. Acknowledgement of your gift will be sent, along with information about the work of Lu’ma Native Housing Society.

    Bequests

    You can decide to leave a gift to First Funds Society when you are preparing your will. The tax deduction reduces the amount of money your family will have to pay to taxes.

    This is a meaningful way to make a lasting gift to the Aboriginal community in Vancouver served by Lu’ma Native Housing Society’s programs and services to homeless and to medical patients. You only need to name First Funds Society as beneficiary in your will and indicate the amount. You can leave a percentage of your estate, the residue or a specific cash donation, a paid-up life insurance policy, securities or property. Your lawyer can contact us for any legal information that is required. A bequest offers flexibility. You retain complete control during your lifetime and it provides your heirs with tax relief.
