Why Plan Your Gift To Bethell Hospice Foundation?

Legacy gifts offer the opportunity to make a meaningful investment in the future of Bethell Hospice, while offering substantial tax benefits as part of a long-term financial plan. Regardless of age or financial situation, you can ensure Bethell Hospice remains a vital resource in our community, accessible at no cost to all in need.

Ways to Give


Leaving a bequest in your Will allows you to make a charitable gift from the proceeds of your estate. A gift can be designated as a fixed amount or as a percentage of assets. A charitable receipt will be provided to reduce the tax otherwise payable to your estate.

Life Insurance Policies

You can provide an ongoing charitable legacy, by naming Bethell Hospice Foundation as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy. Depending on how you structure your plan, you may receive sizable tax savings either during your lifetime or thereafter.

Gifts of Securities

Shares of publicly traded securities can be donated as easily as cash. By transferring gifts of securities, you can also avoid incurring capital gains tax on your donation of the shares.


Naming Bethell Hospice Foundation as a partial or full beneficiary of your RRSP, RRIF or TFSA is a highly tax-effective strategy for leaving a legacy gift.
