Donate a Car Canada accepts Vehicle Donations for the BC Parks Foundation. Free towing is provided in most areas across Canada, or you can drop off your vehicle to maximize your donation. When you donate your car, truck, RV, boat, or motorcycle to the BC Parks Foundation through Donate A Car Canada, it will either be recycled or sold at auction (depending on its condition, age and location). Donate a Car Canada will look after all the details to make it easy for the BC Parks Foundation to benefit. After your vehicle donation is complete, our charity will send you a tax receipt and will put your gift to good use. Please click here to donate a vehicle.
Note that Canada Revenue Agency doesn’t allow charitable gift receipts for services.
Including real estate or publicly traded securities as a charitable gift to the BC Parks Foundation in your will is also a great way to leave a legacy. For your consideration, sample wording for your will could include, "I wish to make a gift to BC Parks Foundation of 625 Howe Street, Suite 1550, Vancouver, British Columbia V6C 2T6, charitable registration number 731307492BW0001, as follows:
(i) select from publicly traded securities that I own, if any, at the date of my death, securities (the “Gift Shares”) that collectively have a total fair market value as of the date of my death of not more than $____ (the “Donation Amount”) and transfer the Gift Shares to the BC Parks Foundation;
(ii) if the value of the Gift Shares is less than the Donation Amount, pay the BC Parks Foundation an amount equal to the difference between the Donation Amount and the value of the Gift Shares; and
(iii) it is my hope that the Donation Amount will be applied by the BC Parks Foundation to support the work of the BC Parks Foundation."

Our mission is to build the largest community of park supporters of any jurisdiction in the world. To do that, we will need to connect with the next generation of park lovers! After talking with a few young people, we were inspired by their excitement and ideas for how to connect with other young people throughout the province. So we asked them if they would be willing to test out their ideas. This project is providing summer and part-time jobs to teenagers who are passionate about spending time outdoors. It provides them with the time, support, and materials to come up with fun ways to connect around parks. We will match all contributions, 100% of which will go to the students' wages and materials.
BC's parks are magnificent places where we can leave the noise and hurry of life behind and be renewed. They are where we experience what is truly beautiful and where we can cultivate wellbeing, resilience and vitality.”
