Donate and create a legacy
It's simple. And we can help
Change a Life
The Yukon Foundation makes it easy to set up a legacy for you or your loved ones.
For Yukoners who want to leave a legacy or remember a loved one, we work with donors and families to create new funds each year. If you would like to find out more, we would be happy to talk with you. It's simple and we can help you with the details.
Your contributions are tax deductible when you donate, and depending on the type of fund you choose to establish, your money keeps funding grants in your name year after year.
You can choose the name of your fund, application requirements, and how much money you and your family and friends want to invest. Every little bit makes a difference in the lives of Yukoners.
For over 40 years, the Yukon Foundation has been managing investments and distributing funds through scholarships and grants. Established under the Yukon Foundation Act, the Foundation's governance structure gives donors the confidence and trust they are looking for. And it provides a one-stop funding source for organizations and students who are looking for financial help to attain their goals.

YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE IN MANY WAYS
Through your will, leaving a capital amount with instructions for its use;
Through establishing a memorial fund for a departed friend;
Through funds from a corporation, business or organization which is no longer active;
Through a life insurance policy with the Yukon Foundation as beneficiary. Most premiums are tax deductible;
Through contributions to the Foundation’s Administration Fund. As this fund grows, the Foundation is able to use more of the interest from other funds for scholarships and projects;
Through a short-term, fixed yearly fund. You or your organization would like to provide a scholarship for a fixed amount each year but you do not have five or ten thousand dollars for a dedicated fund. For an administration fee of 10%, the Foundation will advertise the fund, receive applications and provide you with the completed file to select the applicant of your choice. This can be a one-time event or can be done each year. The Foundation appreciates having the funds and information by January of each year;
Through a scholarship established by a corporation, business or organization. It is work to administer a fund and get maximum returns on your investment. Transfer the funds to the Yukon Foundation; with our larger capital investment we can get premium interest. We will advertise and administer the fund. Your organization will still make the final decision on who should receive the award and make the presentation in whatever way you wish.
Contributions are tax deductible.
