Leave a Gift in Your Will

You can play an important role in hospital’s future by leaving a legacy gift to Mackenzie Health Foundation. A legacy gift is a means of contributing to a registered charity such as Mackenzie Health Foundation, while gaining access to financial benefit for yourself or for your estate. If you’ve been touched by Mackenzie Health at all, it’s one way of expressing thanks. Rest assured, it will make a world of difference in someone’s life. Your gift will ensure that Mackenzie Health will continue to be a vital, life-giving presence in our community for generations to come.

Complete our will Confirmation form and join the Legacy Society

As a member, you will be recognized today for your commitment to the future. You will also receive updates on hospital activities and invitations to Legacy Society social events.

A gift of assets may enable a larger donation than would otherwise be possible with current funds. This type of gift can be given now or in the future and can provide you with the opportunity to establish a personal legacy.

These gifts may include:

  • A bequest in your will
  • Stocks, bonds or mutual funds
  • A life income arrangement such as a charitable remainder trust or gift annuity
  • Property such as art or real estate
  • A new, full or partial paid insurance policy
  • RRSPs and RRIFs.

Some of these gifts have added tax benefits beyond the usual charitable tax credit, such as a 50% reduction in capital gains tax for a gift of appreciated stock.

No matter what the form of your gift, you can choose an area of the hospital that is important to you, and your gift will be directed there, or you can give to the area of greatest need.
