Through Bequests and Estate Planning
When you remember A Rocha in your will, you leave a legacy of hope both for the care of creation and the care of people for generations to come. Whether your bequest is large or small your gift will have a lasting impact.
Bequests and other estate gifts need to be discussed with A Rocha in advance, to ensure that the gift is in alignment with A Rocha’s funding priorities and is structured to be practical to administer and to provide maximum benefit to A Rocha whenever it may be received, years or decades from now.

Please ask your broker to provide Donor Services by phone (604.542.9022), by fax (778.294.0122) or by email with the following information:
a) date that the donation was made (the recorded date of the donation)
b) name, symbol, and exchange of the stock
c) number of shares donated
Upon confirmation that the stocks have been received by A Rocha’s broker, they will be sold and the gift information recorded at A Rocha. A charitable receipt will be issued to you based on the market closing price of the share value on the date it is received by RBC, and will be sent at year-end (mailed in February with consolidated receipts).
Please note that it often takes two weeks for the shares to arrive in our account.
