Gifts in Your Will

Extraordinary Gifts from Everyday People

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.
