Our Hospital, Our StoriesLeave A Gift For The Future - Legacy Giving Month 2024

Posted on: May 06, 2024

May is Legacy Giving Month, and in the spirit of making the world a better place for future generations, we are sharing information on the difference that can be made by those choosing to leave something behind.

Legacy giving goes beyond just financial transactions; it is a testament to a belief in a brighter, healthier future.

Throughout Legacy Giving Month, the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation offers invaluable support and guidance on wills, tax considerations, and estate planning. These are done with support through programs such as the Royal Willow Society, honouring donors' generosity and helping shape the future of healthcare, or Willfora, drafting wills to ensure their intentions will be carried out faithfully.

Creating a legacy gift is a very personal choice. Just as every individual is unique, so are the reasons for donating in this way — from benefiting the health of future family members, to supporting a program that provided much-needed care, to making a difference in one's community.

“When our Uncle Norm died, he left a legacy through a gift in his will. It was a powerful gesture, one that benefitted several health and spiritual care charities in Alberta. For this alone, we as a family are extremely proud of him.” - Joan Rousseau, niece of legacy donor Norman Rousseau.

As Legacy Giving Month unfolds, take time to spread generosity and make an impact on the future. Your life’s work can benefit the lives of others.
