Ways to Leave a Legacy
Bequest in Your Will
This is the most common type of planned gift. A bequest in your Will is easy to set up and allows you to make a future gift to St. Joe’s without affecting your income today.
Registered Retirement Funds
You can name St. Joe’s as a beneficiary of your RRSP or RRIF with the help of your financial institution. This allows you to support St. Joe’s after the financial needs of you and your loved ones are met.
Naming St. Joe’s as the owner or beneficiary of your life insurance policy allows you to make affordable yearly contributions that will result in a larger gift to the Hospital down the road.
Charitable Gift Annuity
A charitable gift annuity is an agreement where you make a contribution to St. Joe’s and get guaranteed income (mostly tax free) for a set number of years or for life. We keep a portion as a donation and use the rest to buy an annuity.
I chose to include St. Joe's as a beneficiary in my Will because, in many ways, St. Joe's feels like home to me. This is just one way I can say thanks for all the Hospital has done for me, my family and my loved ones.
