Legacy_Circle_logo_RGBLegacy Circle is a special society that honours those who chose to make legacy gifts to Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation. Legacy gifts support the hospitals and cancer centre of Hamilton Health Sciences, our patients, researchers and health care teams.

Legacy Circle members enjoy these benefits:

  • Invitations to exclusive hospital tours and seminars, as well as opportunities to meet our outstanding physicians and learn more about their work.
  • Regular updates on what is happening across Hamilton Health Sciences.
  • An opportunity to create an endowment fund* named after you or a loved one.
  • Recognition in Foundation publications and on the web.
  • Celebration with others who share the same vision for health care.

* Establishment of a named endowment fund is in accordance with Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation policies and guidelines.
