Planned Giving Program
Leave a legacy by building a better foundation for tomorrow…today.
Planned Gifts will always be an integral part of providing state of the art technology and excellence in service and equipment for healthcare in our community.
Why make a Planned Gift?
Planning now for your future and the future of the Grande Prairie Regional Hospital Foundation can be mutually beneficial. The Foundation depends on thoughtful individuals like you to make decisions today to create a legacy for tomorrow. Arranging a planned charitable gift is sound financial planning, offering an attractive tax incentive.
Leave a legacy that will make a difference for generations to come. The Grande Prairie Regional Hospital Foundation offers a wide variety of investment options that can help you leave a lasting family legacy. Whether you choose to give through a cash donation, life insurance policy, a bequest in your will, gifts of publicly traded stock options, bursaries, endowments, RRSPs, or even gifts of property or art, there is a way to give that can suit everyone’s needs.
Gifts made through a will are called bequests. Your bequest can be a fixed amount, a specific percentage of the residual amount of the estate, and/or a specific asset. A bequest in your will to a charity of your choice will provide tax relief for your estate in the year of death.
Gifts of Life Insurance
A gift of life insurance makes it possible for you to leverage your contributions to your charity of choice. Your gift to charity is assured with a paid-up policy or through a policy with ongoing premiums paid by the donor.
The idea of creating a perpetual stream of financial support makes sense for people who see a similarity between retirement funds and endowment provisions. Only the income or a portion thereof will be used to support the Hospital Foundation.
Always seek the advice of an accredited estate planner, financial advisor or legal counsel when considering your legacy giving goals, and then contact us to determine how your gift can make a difference at the Grande Prairie Regional Hospital.
