Types of Legacy Gifts


Your Will is one of the most important documents you will ever write. It can provide a lasting legacy for you, your family and your charities of choice.

Bequests are the easiest and most popular way of leaving a legacy gift to PRHC Foundation and can be tailored to suit your needs. Gifts made through Wills range in value from a few thousand dollars to a few hundred thousand dollars. While the amounts may vary, we're grateful for every one.

Please note: If you intend to leave a legacy gift to support patient care, please use our legal name – Peterborough Regional Health Centre Foundation.


Endowments are funds that are permanently set aside and invested to generate an annual and dependable source of support. Expenditures are made from the earnings while the principle remains intact. Held in perpetuity, endowments support and sustain the hospital for generations to come.

You can contribute any amount to an existing endowment or set up your own fund with a minimum investment of $100,000. Funds can be established today or you can plan for a future endowment through a bequest in your Will.
