In My Will or Life Insurance
Leaving a donation in your will is a great way to add meaning to your life and ensure that your memory lives on into the future. You can provide for your family in your will, while also leaving a gift that can make a vital difference in the lives that follow.
When you make a legacy gift to Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation, you are making a statement about your commitment to the future of health care in your community and beyond.
Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation has joined with more than 80 charities, financial advisors and legal services from across the Hamilton-Oakville-Niagara Region to show Canadians the power they have to create positive change through a gift in their Will to charity. Will Power™ is a public education effort aimed at empowering more Canadians to leave a charitable gift in their Will, which could raise as much as $40 billion dollars to advance the causes Canadians care about. Imagine the impact we could all make!
Wills are more than a legal means to distribute your personal assets; they are powerful tools for social change. And it’s not an either/or proposition – you can leave a gift in your Will to charity while still taking care of those you love.
The gift you make in your will can fund a specific program area or support the hospital’s highest-priority needs at the time your gift comes to fruition. This can include medical equipment and amenities (which are not funded by the government), redevelopment projects, or leading-edge research and education.
Regardless of the size of your legacy gift, it can be made as an outright gift for immediate impact, or endowed to allow for annual contributions. We welcome an opportunity to discuss the many ways you can leave a legacy.
