A bequest in your will is one way of making sure great care is always here in our community for your family and neighbours. When you make a bequest in your will, you will become part of our St. Joseph’s Society – a group of special people who are supporting care in our community for generations to come.
- Bequest in Will – The most common and easiest way to make a planned gift is a bequest in a will. A planned gift through a bequest may significantly reduce, by means of a charitable tax receipt, the tax payable on your final income tax return.
- Life Insurance, RRSPs and RRIFs – Gifts of a new or existing life insurance policy can be made naming St. Joseph’s Health Centre Foundation as the beneficiary. This support builds towards a sizeable gift in the future by making relatively small premium payments today. St. Joseph’s Health Centre Foundation can also be named as the beneficiary of a RRSP or RRIF.
- Endowments – Establishing an endowment fund is another way to support the Health Centre. These investments are overseen by the Foundation’s Board of Directors and provide a never-ending source of income for programs and services at St. Joe’s.
