Build a Legacy

A Gift in Your Will

What will Your Legacy Be?

Ross Memorial Hospital was originally founded by a donation and it continues to be an exceptional community hospital with the help of caring donors like you. Some give because of a personal experience or because they want to give back, others want to make a difference.

When you choose to give a gift in your will, you are continuing your own legacy of caring. The Foundation is very grateful to be part of this legacy and takes great care to ensure legacy gifts address priority needs while keeping with the wishes of the donor.

Whether you are gathering information, considering a gift in your will or have already begun drafting your will, we will assist you or your advisors in any way that we can.

We will provide you with the information that best meets your situation and goals, such as: areas of need and future projects, sample bequest wording, legacy gift recognition and donor walls, making a gift of life insurance, creating an endowment.

Gifts in Memory

Gifts in Memory

When we lose someone dear to us, it can be comforting to share stories of happy times, and to remember the things that made our loved ones so special. Often, we want to do something special in their memory.

With the kind cooperation of local funeral homes, the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation’s memorial giving program allows family and friends to commemorate the lives that have touched them.

When you give a gift to Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation in memory of a loved one, you may choose to direct your gift to one of our programs or campaigns that best reflects the wishes of the individual. Please feel free to contact us to learn more about our current projects.

The Foundation hopes that the memorial giving program assists families, knowing that their kindness will help Ross Memorial continue to respond to local health care needs.

The RMH Foundation gratefully receives hundreds of memorial donations annually. These gifts help us support Ross Memorial Hospital through the purchase of new medical technology, and by improving our patient care facilities.

The Foundation offers its sincere thanks to all who have remembered a loved one through a memorial gift, and also to the area funeral homes who support us by receiving these gifts on our behalf.

Gifts to Celebrate an Occasion

Gifts to Celebrate an Occasion

A celebration gift to the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation expresses to others how much you care. With a celebration gift, you can recognize a loved one’s birthday, anniversary or milestone event, and benefit the community through enhanced patient care at the Hospital, too!

How it works

Simply make a donation to the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation, and let us know what you’re celebrating. We will send a special card to your loved one recognizing your contribution in his or her honour. We’ll also issue you a charitable tax receipt and mail it to you with our thanks. Your loved one’s name will also appear on our e-newsletter, our receipt inserts, and in the local newspaper.

Not a traditional occasion? Not a worry! Give us the details, and we’ll be happy to custom design your special card. With celebration giving, you can give the gift of good health. What could be more special than that?
