Gifts in Your Will

Extraordinary Gifts from Everyday People


Kevin and Laurel

Laurel shares the story of her husband Kevin, the care he received at Victoria Hospice, and the legacy it inspired.

The gift of a lifetime

Victoria Hospice would not be what it is today without the vision and foresight of ordinary people who took the extraordinary step of including a legacy gift in their Will. These gifts help us provide the best round-the-clock care, bereavement support for families, education partnerships, and more. Each year, we must raise roughly half of our annual operating budget. In a typical year, close to 40% of the funds we raise result from legacy giving.

It is an honour to receive legacy gifts from people of all walks of life. Each gift is truly unique and received with gratitude, making a lasting difference in end-of-life care for patients and families.

Gift Options

  • Specific cash amount
  • Portion or percentage of your estate
  • Real Estate
  • Securities
  • Charitable gift annuities

Discussing your legacy gift in confidence with us allows us to thank you for your vision and understand what inspired you to give. It also ensures Victoria Hospice will use your gift in a way that aligns with your objectives, helping our organization plan for the future.

Victoria Hospice strongly recommends all donors consult with their professional advisors before selecting a gift planning strategy.
