Legacy Giving

We all want to create a legacy—something to be remembered by. What better way to be remembered than as a champion of health care in our community? By making a gift in your will to the MUHC Foundation, you become a member of our Legacy Society and ensure future generations have access to the very best care.

"We do not live for ourselves alone. Those of us who are fortunate and connected to others like us must act as leaders and give back to our community. We believe we live in one of the best places in the world. We can demonstrate our pride and gratitude by helping those with less to build a better world."

How to make a gift 

in your will

Making a planned gift is simple. In your will, you can choose to give a specific sum of money or a percentage of your estate. This means you may be able to have a greater impact than would be affordable during your lifetime. When a bequest is realized, your estate will receive a donation receipt for the gift.
