Planned Giving

How will you be remembered?

Everyone wants to leave a legacy. A planned or future gift is a gift from your estate. Big or small, a gift to the Bowmanville Hospital Foundation will leave your family with a lasting legacy.

If you have decided to remember the Bowmanville Hospital Foundation in your estate plans, we encourage you to let us know. We appreciate the opportunity to say thank you and recognize your loyalty through the J.W. Alexander Starlight Society. And, if you wish to remain anonymous, we will respect your wishes.

We appreciate the decision to leave a planned gift is a very personal commitment. It is important for you to discuss your plans with your family and your financial and legal advisors. They will help to ensure your gift fits your personal circumstances and that you maximize any tax advantages.

Remembering the Bowmanville Hospital Foundation as part of your estate plan helps build a healthy future for our hospital and community.

Ways to Plan Your Gift


In Your Will

Bequests are the most common ways of leaving a legacy. You may outline in your Will the gift of a specific dollar amount, a residual amount or a specific percentage.

Life Insurance

Designating the Bowmanville Hospital Foundation as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy can provide a substantial future gift for a relatively low annual cost. If you do not wish to donate an existing policy, you can purchase a new one on behalf of the Foundation.

Other Gifts

Gifts of property – e.g. real estate; naming the Foundation as a beneficiary of your RRSP, RRIF or pension; Charitable Remainder Trust; Charitable Gift Annuity.
