Like you, we believe that access to expert, specialized learning supports should be available to all children and youth, regardless of their ability to pay.

Why LDS – Learn. Develop. Succeed?

Thanks to donors like you, LDS has been transforming the lives of children with learning differences for over 50 years!

Our methods work for kids.

UBC studies of our students have shown remarkable advancement in literacy.

Our interventions can help society.

According to a report from the Justice Institute of BC and the Vancouver Board of Trade, “Early interventions for disadvantaged kids… reduce crime, teenage pregnancy and welfare dependency.”

Ways to Donate

Help us to support hundreds more vulnerable learners during these challenging times.

From the students, staff, and board of LDS: THANK YOU!

LDS is a Canadian registered charity (#108166307RR0001). Charitable tax receipts will be automatically issued to the name and email you provide below. Gifts can be made in honour, celebration or memory of anyone, at your discretion.

Donations in USD may be eligible for a US tax receipt via our fund held at Vancouver Foundation. Please inquire.

Give Monthly

Split your annual donation into 12 equal payments to transform lives all year. Giving monthly is safe, easy, and helps us to budget for our bursary fund.

Donate Securities

Donating appreciated investments provides you with additional tax benefits, and can be done in your lifetime or as part of a legacy gift.

Donate Bitcoin, Crytocurrency, Real Estate or Life Insurance

If giving via cryptocurrency, real estate divestment or other non-cash assets works best for your tax / estate planning and giving priorities, we are pleased to accept these methods of donation via our fund held at Charitable Impact:

Fundraise for LDS

Support children and youth with learning differences by organizing a fundraising event with your friends, family, neighbours, or colleagues.

Legacy Giving How To

Step 1

If you don’t have a will already, we recommend you seek professional help from an experienced legal and or financial advisor to ensure your wishes are honoured. If you do have a will already, it’s fairly simple to amend it.

Step 2

It’s important to include our full name and charitable number in your will. Without this, we may not receive your gift.

Legal name: Learning Disabilities Society of Greater Vancouver

Charitable Registration Number: 108 166 307 RR0001

Step 3

We recommend you share the following clause with your advisor: “I give all or (enter a percentage or fixed amount) of the residue of my estate, a specific cash legacy, or specific proceeds of the liquidation of an asset, to Learning Disabilities Society of Greater Vancouver, charitable registration number 108 166 307 RR0001 (the “Society”). I request that funds be used for the highest priority need as determined by the Society at the time of receipt of funds.”

Please note we can only accept cash or cash proceeds of assets that have been liquified by the estate; we cannot accept title transfers of real property or other assets.
