A Gift That Gives to All
At the Medicine Hat Health Foundation, 100% of your donations lead directly to better medical care, treatments, training, and facilities. In their moments of greatest need, people and families in our community benefit from the gifts you give – and legacy giving provides an excellent opportunity to leave a lasting mark on many other lives.
Legacy giving – also known as planned giving – is a donation of assets, rather than income or revenue, as laid out in a donor’s will or estate plan. While this may be done in several ways, through different financial tools that can be adapted to your situation, the end result is the same: providing a last gift of hope and support for others in our community.
Whether you’re new to the idea or a lifelong donor, you can enjoy the personal and estate tax benefits legacy giving provides.
