Planned giving seminars to be hosted by Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation

Events in Chilliwack and Abbotsford can be attended in person or by joining online

This September the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) will be hosting free seminars on planned giving in both Chilliwack and Abbotsford.

Speakers from KPMG, RBC Wealth Management and RDM Lawyers will help the participants learn the ins and outs of maximizing benefits through proper estate planning.

“This year we will be delivering this program slightly different than normal,” said Liz Harris, executive director of the FVHCF. “Participants will have the option to attend either in person or watch a live stream of the seminar. The in-person sessions are limited seating and physically distanced to keep everyone safe, but you must register in advance.”

Participants can register online at fvhcf.ca/legacy for either session in person, or to receive a link for the live broadcast.

In Chilliwack, the event is on Sept. 23 beginning at 9 a.m. at Cottonwood 4 Cinemas, with a maximum of 40 people.

In Abbotsford, the event is on Sept. 24 beginning at 5 p.m. at Abbotsford Regional Hospital’s Learning Centre, with a maximum of 30 people.

A live stream link will be emailed to registered participants.
