A Farewell Message


After decades of providing legal, tax, strategic and operational advise to donors, charities and governments in Canada and globally, Blake Bromley has officially retired. He committed to retiring at age 70 and is months away from that deadline. He is in the final process of winding-up Benefic Group. Blake is not sure he will be as successful in retiring as he was in practicing law, but has moved to Vancouver Island and will focus on family, travel and a variety of academic and charitable pursuits.


Blake readily acknowledges that he would not have been able to serve Benefic's clients so effectively without the knowledge and abilities of hist staff. Without the expertise and skills of Leslie Brandlmayr, Pam Lushington, Victoria Nalugwa and Mikael Bingham and others, Benefic would not have been able to incorporate and register new charities and subsequently comply with their legal and tax compliance requirements while Blake was maintaining a travel schedule which has had him circulating the globe an average of 5 times a year for the past 3 decades.


Blake is pleased that this team will continue to provide this expertise and service to Benefic's former clients under the new corporation Cadence Charity Offices Inc. They will focus on incorporation, registration and compliance work and will not provide the tax and gift planning work which was such an important focus of Blake's career. Blake will make himself available to Cadence as necessary. However, as this staff has been much more hands-on in delivering these Benefic services than Blake has been, Blake is confident that he will have few interruptions in his retirement. Cadence Charity Office Inc. is moving to Unit 203-815 Hornby Street, Vancouver, BC V6Z 2E6 and can be reached at https://www.cadencecharityservices.com/


Blake would like to take this opportunity to thank all of Benefic's clients and friends for trusting this capable team to assist them in achieving their benevolent, philanthropic and charitable aspirations.
