Donors play a crucial role in enabling provincial healthcare sites to deliver medical care closer to home. You are making a difference in the lives of people in your community, and are building our capacity to provide excellent patient care for years to come. Explore the many donation options we offer to contribute to the Dr. REM Lee Hospital Foundation.
Donate in Memory
A gift in memory is a meaningful way to honour the memory of a loved one or to express your sympathy to someone who has lost a loved one.
Honour Someone Special
Any milestone – such as a wedding, birthday, or anniversary – is a special occasion that you can celebrate with a gift that saves and improves lives.
Legacy Giving – Planned Gift
Leaving a charitable gift as part of your estate plan to help the people and families served by The Dr. R.E.M. Lee Hospital Foundation provides the satisfaction of knowing you have made a truly meaningful contribution to future generations. Planned Giving means leaving a gift that will make a difference for years to come. It is a wonderful way to support the things you care about most, now and after you are gone. For many donors, it’s also an important part of their estate planning and exemplifies the vision and forethought of their philanthropic beliefs.
A Gift in Your Will
A gift made in your will, also known as a bequest, is one of the simplest ways to make a significant gift – perhaps larger than you ever thought possible. Bequests may be directed to a particular department of the hospital that is meaningful to you. Even if you choose not to designate your bequest, you can be assured it will go to the highest priority needs at the hospital. A gift in your will to The Dr. R.E.M. Lee Hospital Foundation provides tax benefits to the donor’s estate and can significantly reduce taxes payable upon death.
RRSPs & RRIFs
Make a charitable gift of Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) is simple. You can make a donation of all or a portion of any remaining retirement funds upon your death by naming The Dr. R.E.M. Lee Hospital Foundation as a beneficiary on your plan.
By making The Dr. R.E.M. Lee Hospital Foundation the beneficiary of a life insurance policy you ensure that the Foundation will receive the death benefit of the policy. You can donate an existing policy or purchase a new policy. Such a gift can provide immediate and annual tax savings, as premiums paid for the policy may be eligible for tax credits.
Gift of Securities
Make a gift of securities is a tax effective way to the Hospital Foundation now or in the future as part of your estate planning. If you donate publicly traded securities that have increased in value directly to the Foundation you do not have to pay tax on the capital gain.
We encourage you to seek estate planning and/or financial advice when making decisions about your gift to the Hospital Foundation.
Become a Monthly Donor
Monthly donations are a year-round reminder of the values you share with your hospital, and of your vision for a better future for health care in our region.
Setting up a regular monthly gift is an easy and convenient way to have a significant and long-term impact on the work of The Dr. R.E.M. Lee Hospital Foundation. Your regular gift creates an invaluable resource of sustained funding for the Hospital Foundation, allowing the hospital to invest money where it’s needed most and to plan ahead for long-term projects that will change patients’ lives for generations to come.
You can give monthly in any amount of your choosing, and you may adjust your amount or cancel your donation at any time. As a monthly donor, you will receive one consolidated tax receipt following the end of each calendar year for your total year’s contribution.
