Society for Compassionate Care Forever

Learn more about how your planned gift can be recognized and appreciated, either privately or publicly.


Welcome to our Family

Everyone who makes a legacy gift to the Winchester District Memorial Hospital or the WDMH Foundation is welcomed into our Society for Compassionate Care Forever (acknowledgment and recognition can be private or public, depending on your preference). It's our way of honouring your generosity and commitment to local health care.


The Society for Compassionate Care Forever has been established as an expression of gratitude to donors who bequeath a legacy to the hospital.


Members receive:

  • Life-long association and contact with the WDMH Foundation (in agreed-upon ways);
  • Recognition in our annual report;
  • Listing on the Society’s donor plaque at the hospital (if desired; can be listed under “Anonymous”);
  • Invitation to the Foundation's Leadership Society Brunch(es);
  • Invitation to other events and seminars, as available;
  • And a subscription to our newsletter (printed three times annually).

Please note that membership is not mandatory and all details of your gift are kept strictly confidential, as we respect your privacy. Any donors not seeking to be publicly recognized will be recognized and thanked privately, as mutually agreed upon.


Join the Society for Compassionate Care Forever by planning your gift today. Or, if you've already planned a gift, download our Planned Gift Confirmation Form. You can also fill out this form if you’ve already made a planned gift to the WDMH Foundation or are in the process of making a gift.


Thank you so much for considering the future of local health care as part of your legacy!
