“After careful and serious deliberation, I have decided that the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation was the right place to trust with my estate. Through discussions with the folks there, I gained the confidence that my life's work will help the most people, and in a way that has deep meaning for me. I truly believe that as long as the Royal Alexandra Hospital is given the support it deserves to carry out its work, the future is limitless.”

Bequests and Planned Giving - Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to tell you that I have made a gift in my Will to the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation?

No, you don’t have to tell us at all! However, if you do share details with us, and wish to keep them private, we can easily do that. We respect your privacy absolutely! That said, we would like to know so that we can say thank you and welcome you to our Legacy Builders Society. We can also share with you the future impact that your gift will make and also invite you to special events at the Royal Alexandra Hospital and its medical centres of excellence.

What is your correct legal name?

Our correct legal name is the “Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation” and our Charitable Registration Number is 11912 6217 RR0001.

Once I tell you can I still change my mind?

Yes, you can definitely change your mind. Personal circumstances can change and we understand this. You can alter or revise your Will through your lawyer at any time.

If I have already made my Will, can I still include the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation? 

Yes, you can revise your Will by adding a codicil. A codicil is a document that amends, rather than replaces, a previously executed Will. Simply add a codicil to your Will making the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation a beneficiary of your estate.

Can my gift support a specific area of research or program?

The Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation team will ensure that your gift is used as intended. Please contact Terry Tobin in our office. He can assist you on the correct bequest wording to ensure that your wishes are captured in precisely the way that you want.
