Planned Giving

Ensuring the legacy of learning and leadership
Gift planning a is a way of ensuring the legacy of learning and leadership well into the future and enables you to perpetuate your support to York House School.

What are Planned Gifts?

Planned gifts are usually gifts of capital such as bequests rather than cash. Many people, after they have provided for their loved ones in their will, also wish to leave something to a non-profit organization that they cherish and have supported throughout their lifetime. 

Bequests at York House are dedicated to scholarships and bursaries to enable future generations of young women, who otherwise would not have the opportunity, to attend the school. View the "Discover the Opportunities" scholarship video.

Please consider including York House School in your estate plans. For more information, view our booklet, A Lasting Legacy, or a list of types of planned gifts here. Download a donor card and make a gift online today. To speak with someone about planned giving at York House, please contact Priscilla Clark, Associate Director, Alumnae Relations, at 604-730-2414 or

Legacy Society

The York House School Legacy Society is celebrating its 20th anniversary and honours those who have made a planned gift through a bequest to the York House Foundation. These society members truly emulate our school motto, Not for Ourselves Alone. Below is a list of our generous Legacy Society donors. If you have already provided for York House's future, please contact Priscilla Clark at 604-730-2414 or to allow us to acknowledge your thoughtfulness and include you as a Legacy Society member.
