Ways to Donate

Make a Legacy Gift

 

Planning a gift in a will that will help your community into the future can bring a sense of peace and joy. Planned gifts, or bequests, are gifts left in a will that are intended for the future without affecting the donor’s current income. There are many different tax advantages to these types of gifts. Donors considering this type of gift are encouraged to first speak to their personal financial advisor and/or lawyer.

Gifts that involve a donation of stocks, securities, insurance, personal and real property in lieu of cash are accepted by Grey Bruce Hospice Inc. A tax receipt can be provided for the fair market value of these gifts.

Once you have made your decision on making a bequeath or for more information, contact our Executive Director or phone (519) 370-7239.

A movement is building across the country. Over 3 million Canadians have left a gift in their Will to charity! This trend in “ethical wills” has surged in the past three years, and it’s no surprise! With so much change in the world highlighting new and growing needs, more people than ever are looking for ways to make an impact.

Grey Bruce Hospice has partnered with Will Power, a national campaign that educates Canadians about the power of leaving a charitable gift in their Will. We all want to help where we can and make our mark on the world. This movement is about finding a way to do that, while still protecting your finances and family’s future.
