Leaving a gift in your Will to the
Stratford Perth Hospice Foundation is the simplest way to leave a legacy of care and compassion.


“…although I hope to not leave this earth anytime soon… I have been thinking about a worthy recipient. The Rotary Hospice came to mind.”

Did you know that only 5% of Canadians leave a gift in their will to charity? Imagine the difference if we all did this – regardless of the amount. 

For monthly donor, Wilma Ferguson, including Stratford Perth Hospice Foundation as a beneficiary in her will was an easy decision – and it was easy to do. Wilma became a monthly donor after hearing from a friend who “couldn’t help but gush over the extraordinary attention her husband received at Rotary Hospice.”

Thank you, Wilma, for your tremendous dedication, and our thanks to all of you considering this type of gift – what a legacy to compassionate end of life care for this community.

Although the process is easy, we understand that there are a lot of things you will want to consider before you make or update your Will including:

  • Can I leave a gift to charity and also make sure my family is taken care of?

  • Should I leave a percentage or a specific amount? How much?

  • What are the steps to make this happen?

  • What information do I provide to my lawyer or financial advisor?

We’ve put together an information booklet that we hope will help. 

Please note, when considering a gift in your will, we encourage you to consult your lawyer or estate planner and family.
