PLAN A LEGACY GIFT
Planning a future legacy gift is simple yet powerful.
We often talk about planned giving and purposeful giving. That means taking a forward-thinking approach towards understanding how you can take steps today to help a cause that is important to you and still take care of your family after you’re gone.
Here at Surrey Hospital Foundation we help generous, thoughtful people learn how they can align their personal values and interests in the most tax effective way. Many people find that legacy giving can make it possible for them to make a larger gift than they ever thought possible and still be able to take care of their family and friends.
Ways to donate
Planning a legacy gift can be as simple as talking to your family and instructing your lawyer to add a clause in your will. Or if you need more help, simply call or email us to start finding the most meaningful way to make a difference.

Give a gift of your registered savings accounts.
RRSP, RRIF and TFSA accounts are a great way to save money and defer tax payments until some day in the future. What many people don’t realize is that unless you have a spouse who will inherit your RRSP or RRIF, almost 50% of your hard-earned savings will go towards paying those future taxes.
The only way to offset this tax bill is to make charity the beneficiary on your registered account. Appointing Surrey Hospital Foundation as the beneficiary is a way to make a difference for health care AND save on taxes. Learn more …
Give a gift of life insurance.
For those who wish they could do more to make a difference for Surrey Memorial Hospital, giving a gift of life insurance may be the most effective and convenient way to make your wishes come true. It’s easy to do and can reduce taxes as well. Learn more …
Give a gift of property.
Gifting some land, houses or commercial property are powerful ways to leave your mark. You can donate property during your lifetime or through your estate. Either way, this type of gift requires careful planning and the help of other legal and financial professionals to ensure your gift is managed in the best possible way.
If you leave a gift in your will, please let us know so we can thank you and talk about what kind of impact you’d like your gift to make. We respect your privacy and confidentiality.
