A planned gift is a meaningful way to leave a transformational legacy of support for Langley School District students and schools.

Let us help you get started.

Leave a lasting legacy today

Leaving a charitable gift in your will, to an organization you support and value, is a powerful legacy. Future generations of students in Langley will benefit from your generosity, allowing you to make an impact on the lives of children, families and our community for years to come.

Benefits of Planned Giving

Significant benefits to both the donor and the recipient can be found through Planned Giving.

Tax relief – significantly reduce estate taxes

Flexibility – your gift can be made in any amount, or as a percentage of your estate. You can make adjustments to your gift at any time.

Plan today, give tomorrow – your current income won’t be affected; there are no out-of-pocket expenses

Gift in Will

Make the Langley School District Foundation a beneficiary in your Will and know that your legacy will live on for generations. A tax receipt for the full amount of your gift will be issued and may offset capital gains or other taxes payable to lessen the financial cost on your estate.

Planned Giving Endowments Fund

The Langley School District Foundation has an Endowment Fund dedicated to planned gifts. In order to maximize your gift, bequests will be directed to a long-term investment fund for the purpose of generating income over time. Funds generated from the investment may be used to fund the Foundation’s mission, leaving your initial investment untouched.

Families and loved ones can contribute to the Planned Giving Endowment in honour of you, if they wish.

We will honour your generosity. There is great power in charitable giving through an endowment fund. It’s a reflection of your values, and a statement to future generations about your foresight, concern, and vision. We’ll work with you to share your story and inspire others to make a difference in our community — or, if you prefer, your anonymity will be respected.

Other ways to support Planned Giving?

A gift of securities to the Langley School District Foundation is one of the most financially sound ways to support our programs. When you donate stocks, mutual funds or other types of marketable securities to a charity, you pay no capital gains tax. You’ll also receive a tax receipt for the full amount of the gift.

Gifts of life insurance are a great way to make a substantial donation for the relatively low cost of the premium payments. You can donate a policy you already own, make the Langley School District Foundation the beneficiary of a joint policy held with your spouse, or buy a new policy to donate.

Our Vision


The Langley School District Foundation was established in 2001 with a goal to supplement publicly funded education to ensure Langley students achieve success.

We envision a community where:

  1. The basic needs of children are met.
  2. Students have ample innovative and impactful educational opportunities offered to support the leaders of tomorrow.
  3. Local organizations collaborate to meet the needs of students and their families so that Langley is a strong and healthy community.

Will you invest in our future?

90% of all donations go to support Langley students and their programs. All donations are tax receiptable.

The Langley School District Foundation was incorporated in 2001 as a Canadian registered charity.
