A gift in your Will can make an impact for generations to come.
After providing for your loved ones, choosing to include the PRHC Foundation as a beneficiary of your Will can have a tremendous impact on our community, helping ensure that excellent patient care remains the standard at PRHC for generations to come. In fact, for many people, a single gift in a Will can amount to more than a lifetime of charitable giving, even after you’ve ensured your loved ones are cared for.
Leaving a legacy gift to the PRHC Foundation is a simple process.
Your advisor can help you determine the best way to make a gift in your Will. It can be a percentage of your estate, a specific amount, or what’s left over after you’ve made specific bequests to loved ones. However you choose to give, you’ll know that you’re helping members of our community receive the very best care at PRHC.
Contact your lawyer to work out the details of your gift. If you’re not planning a full update of your Will, you can simply include a codicil in your Will outlining your wishes. (Please ensure you use our full legal name: Peterborough Regional Health Centre Foundation.)
Discover the power of your Will
PRHC Foundation has partnered with Will Power, a national effort to show Canadians the power they have to do more with their Will. Find out what your Will can do! Visit PRHC Foundation’s Will Power page to access free, easy-to-use tools, templates and legacy information.
If you’ve made a gift in your Will, we would love to hear from you!
Letting us know your intentions allows us the opportunity to say “thank you” and include you in special opportunities where you can get a first-hand look at the incredible impacts your gift will have on the lives of patients at PRHC.
Additionally, we’d be happy to recognize your generous gift on our Celebration of Giving donor recognition display in the main lobby of the hospital, or keep your donation anonymous if you would prefer.
Talk to your family, talk to your advisors and when you’re ready, talk to us. We’re here to help! For more information, please contact Lesley Heighway, President & CEO, at 705-743-2121, ext. 3859 or send her an email.
Always consult a professional financial advisor to discuss the best charitable giving options for you.
