Legacy Giving

Leave a Legacy

Make quality health care a part of your life story by leaving a gift to support Grey Bruce Health Services’ Meaford Hospital in your Estate plan.

Your legacy gift is a testament to what you believe. If you share our vision for quality care available close to home, you can help ensure your hospital continues to be there for family, friends and neighbours – when they need it most.

Your Legacy Gift Will:

  • Provide stable funding to meet the needs of patients for the long term.
  •  Help purchase life-saving medical equipment.
  • Enable our physicians, nurses and technical staff to provide the best care possible with state of the art
    diagnostic and medical equipment.
  • Help attract the medical professionals we so desperately need in Meaford and Town of the Blue Mountains.


Ways to Give

There are as many ways to give a legacy gift as there are needs to be met! Your donation may be outright, providing funds for immediate use, or it may be planned now for a future date. Some options for giving include:


Charitable Trusts


Leaving a legacy gift is an act that is generous, powerful and surprisingly simple! It enables you to leave a larger gift than is possible during your lifetime, while staying in control of your assets. A charitable gift in your Estate plan also helps eliminate income tax payable upon your death.

You don’t need to be wealthy to help! Your legacy gift of any amount joins together with others to make an incredible future impact. Each gift is treated with the utmost care. Leaving a legacy is simple. Talk it over with your loves ones, then speak with your lawyer about drafting or revisiting your Will, or adding a Codicil.

Every gift makes a difference.
