About Gift Planning

Your life’s legacy is so important. And something worth thinking about and planning for. The WDMH Foundation would be honoured and grateful to receive or be notified of your planned gift, including gifts through your: will or estate; life insurance policy; RRSPs or RRIFs; or publicly traded securities.


Thank you for considering a planned gift to the WDMH Foundation. Every gift really does make a difference, no matter how large or small. Your professional advisors can help you determine what kind of planned gift would be best for you and your family during life and also in your estate.


A planned gift to WDMH shows your vision and inclination to provide for the long-term, ongoing needs of WDMH, which will make such a difference at your hospital. We invite you to consider your philanthropic and community goals and how they intersect with the future of your local hospital.

"I believe that WDMH is a real “gem” in our community, providing convenient “close to home”, high quality healthcare for everyone. I personally believe that everyone able to do so, has an obligation to support their local hospital as part of their charitable giving, especially in their senior years.


In Ontario, as in most of Canada, we are fortunate that the province funds the major portion of our health care system through our taxes. Many people are not aware that this does not include the purchase of new medical equipment and technology. This must be funded primarily through charitable donations from people in their local community."

Your planned gift would make a difference to patient care at WDMH for many years to come. It also has the advantage of not impacting your finances today and offering tax benefits for you now and/or your estate, or heirs, later.
