Blended Gifts

Blended gifts incorporate a structure where you give something now, something later (gift in Will) and perhaps something in-between. They provide you with the greatest opportunity to maximize your philanthropic investment in UBC, while taking into consideration your long term financial needs. There are also significant tax advantages to giving during your lifetime and similar tax advantages when you leave a gift in your estate plans.

Here’s how blended gifts work
