Ways to Give
Estate and Planned Giving
By including the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation as part of your estate plan, you can help to support the critical needs of our community Hospital.
Beverley Brandreth-Carbin has included JBH in her estate plans as a legacy gift from her and her children.
"We're the number one city in Canada," she says. "And no one has a hospital as beautiful. I'm proud that the Brandreth family will continue to support our community hospital."
Past legacy gifts have funded the purchase of critical equipment throughout our Hospital including the Diagnostic Imaging Unit, Emergency Department, Surgery, Maternal and Child Unit and Wellness House.
There are many types of legacy gifts including:
- Wills & Bequests – A gift in your will is one of the most common, and often the simplest legacy gift to make.
- Gift of Securities – When you donate a gift of securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax.
- Gifts of RRSP & RRIFS – Giving retirement assets is easy and tax effective. Make the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation the beneficiary of your RRSP or RRIF and enjoy your retirement savings today.
- Gifts of Insurance - Turn a modest investment now into a substantial contribution later.
