Leaving a Legacy

Most of us look back fondly about the time that we spent learning and growing at Britannia Secondary and the community. The contacts and networks that we have nurtured and developed through Britannia never really leave us. As a result, many of us want to find a way to give and give back to the school.

In 1993, the Britannia Support Society was formed to address the expanding need for resources and opportunities for students at the school. Over the years, the BSS has helped with many events, along with athletic and academic equipment that was needed by the school. Most importantly, it has enabled students to achieve what was unattainable due to financial restraints.  Many Britannia students have gone onto attend prestigious universities throughout the world which would not have been possible without this financial assistance. 
Please go to our What We Do page for a detailed list of how we help make a difference.
The Britannia Support Society is hoping that you will consider their charitable organization when thinking about leaving a legacy through your will.

We can also work with you or your financial advisor to set up an endowment fund – where the investment of a capital amount will be invested and the interest generated from that will be used to benefit the community for years to come.  Your gift will continue to keep on giving year after year.
Your professional advisor can help ensure that you are getting the maximum tax value and legal advantages allowed, while maximizing the positive impact of your donation.
We would consider it our privilege to sit down and talk with you and/or your legal or financial advisors to review the options available.
