Park Gifts & Donations

Leave a lasting legacy and help create a rich heritage of nature parks and trails for future generations to enjoy in the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD). Protecting our greenspaces, both for conservation and recreation, is vital to ensuring that the Comox Valley remains a spectacular region to live, work and explore for many generations to come.

The CVRD Leave a Legacy program has helped put 80 benches in regional district parks and bring in a number of cash donations.  Thank you to all the donors for supporting our parks and greenways.

The CVRD is no longer accepting bench, table or tree gifts. Renewals on existing bench gifts are also being discontinued as of June 2023. Plaques from gifted benches will be returned to the donors when the bench needs to be replaced.

We can offer sample wording for your will and other useful legal and tax information and confidential assistance to you and your advisors.  Any and all information you provide will be held in strictest confidence.
