Leaving a gift in your will (bequest) to Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation is a powerful act of generosity. You can realize the dream of providing for the future of healthcare in a way that may not have been possible during your lifetime.

Leaving a gift in your will is simple. You can provide cash, securities, property or set aside a specific amount or percentage of your estate. Discuss it with your family and consult with your professional advisors about the options that best suit your goals and circumstances.

The benefits of giving through your will: 

  • A gift in your will allows you to make a gift in the future without impacting your assets today
  • Your estate receives a charitable tax credit that can significantly offset taxes owed
  • A gift in your will is revocable and you may change your plans at any time

Be sure to inform us of your intentions and your wishes. It will give us the opportunity to thank you and, more importantly, to discuss what your gift will help to accomplish at Markham Stouffville Hospital for generations to come. 

Please be assured that if you wish your gift to remain anonymous we will always respect your privacy.
