Giving in Wills

Leave your legacy in our community with a kind and compassionate gift.

Giving in wills is a charitable gift that you arrange today for completion in the future. It is most commonly a planned gift in your will, but it can also be a life insurance policy or other financial assets.

By making such a gift, you’ll be leaving a legacy while providing you or your heirs with significant tax benefits.

You may download Making a Planned Gift in Your Will for important information on how to make a gift in your will to The Foundation of Guelph General Hospital.

Join our Heritage Society

We are honoured to recognize those who have shared with us their intention to make a planned gift through our Heritage Society. Heritage Society members meet once a year for a recognition luncheon with a special Hospital speaker. In addition, society members are able to attend Hospital tours and educational seminars. Once a planned gift is confirmed, society members, with their permission, are recognized in Foundation publications. These extraordinary gifts are also recognized on our Donor Wall. All requests for anonymity are respected.

To be recognized as Heritage Society Member, please complete and return this form.
