Charitable Bequests

A charitable bequest is a gift from your estate to a charitable organization through your last will and testament. There are different kinds of bequests, and each kind requires specific language. To show the precise direction of your assets, and to successfully carry out your final wishes, be sure to name the recipient accurately. For example, a bequest to “The Cancer Society” might go to national headquarters, when you meant it to go to the affiliate in your community.

We accept donations of stocks, life insurance policies, etc. Have questions? Please contact our executive director, Soulafa, who can assist you in making sure your legacy wishes are honoured:

Planned Giving  

One of the biggest misconceptions about leaving a legacy is that only the wealthy can do it. The truth is that everyone can plan a legacy gift no matter their current income or assets. Legacy gifts are often referred to as planned gifts, since they are often organized over a long period of time by the donor. Planning a gift can often result in a significant contribution to a charitable organization, as it has been carefully considered and prepared over time.

If you are considering making a planned gift in support of the Canmore General Hospital, please contact Soulafa, who can assist you in making sure your legacy wishes are honoured:

Many of the ways of giving listed above will enable the Canmore and Area Health Care Foundation to process a tax receipt for your records. Tax receipts are issued for donations of $25 and over.

“It’s about sharing the good fortune I’ve had in my life and giving back to a community and a province that has given me good fortune.”

— Lorne  Heuckroth, major donor to CAHCF for the labour and delivery rooms at CGH

“This is a community-driven foundation and we need everybody’s support.”

— Jack Van Deventer, Volunteer and Donor
