Every day people are helped and lives are enriched by the work being done here at the Cambridge Memorial Hospital.
However, financial assistance is essential to support and sustain the work that we do for the community. Many people generously give their money, time and energy to their local non-profit organizations and are unaware that by leaving a gift in their will or estate to the charitable organization of their choice, they can continue to help people in need or promote a favourite cause.
Choosing to leave a gift from the heart brings meaning, dignity and purpose to a life well lived. Your gift is your opportunity to participate in the charitable and community work most meaningful to you, in a way that allows these important causes to be well supported now and into the future.
Surprisingly, a gift can also be a very practical addition to a financial or estate plan when tax issues are taken into consideration.
HOW TO GET STARTED
Think about the charitable organization or cause you would most like to help. Maybe you or someone you know has benefitted from the exceptional healthcare provided at the Cambridge Memorial Hospital. Maybe you are an active volunteer or believe in the mission and values of the Cambridge Memorial Hospital. Or you may choose to leave a gift in memory of a loved one who was cared for by the caring and compassionate staff of the Cambridge Memorial Hospital.
Do your homework. Take the time to speak with any of the staff at the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation. We can tell you more about what we do here at the hospital and the benefits we provide to the community, what opportunities are available for giving and how your gift will help us to continue our work.
Consult the appropriate professional advisors. Get the right expertise and advice to ensure the type and timing of your gift maximizes the advantages to you and your loved ones.
Talk to your family members. Make them aware of your intentions and involve them in the conversation. This will ensure that your loved ones support the achievement of your charitable goals.
Once you have decided how you are going to proceed, let us know about your intentions so that we can thank you for helping us to build a healthier community.
