Leave A Legacy

Make quality health care a part of your life story by leaving a gift to support Grey Bruce Health Services’ Southampton 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 Centre Grey.

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:

Wills and Bequests
Life Insurance
RSP & RIF Plans

Leaving a legacy 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.

Our new, easy to understand bequest infographic will show you how little it will cost (your kids) to leave a gift in your will in support of our doctors, nurses and technical staff at Saugeen Memorial Hospital

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.

Thank You!
Our Caring for Tomorrow Society recognizes those who plan legacy gifts. You are under no obligation to tell us about your gift, but we would like to acknowledge your thoughtfulness and welcome you to this group of committed and passionate supporters. If you prefer, your gift can remain anonymous.
