Will Bequests

A Letter of Peace or a Letter of Blessing can support the next generation. Adding a simple amendment to your Will, called a codicil, allows donors to leave a legacy to Burnaby Hospital Foundation that helps ensure a high standard of health care for your family, friends and everyone else in your community.

Bequests made through a Will allow you to make a contribution to the future of Burnaby Hospital, often a contribution that you couldn't make during your lifetime.

Burnaby Hospital Foundation's Legacy Society celebrates those who have planned a gift through a bequest in their Will.

See our Donor Recognition section for a list of those members of the Legacy Society who having passed have left a legacy of $5,000 or more to Burnaby Hospital Foundation.

A tax receipt for the value of the gift can be used to offset tax otherwise payable on a final tax return and on the preceding year's tax return. Legacy gifts can be either a set amount or a portion of the residue of an estate.

Here are samples of Will Clause Language, which is information your lawyer will need. The sample Will clauses are intended for informational purposes only and should not be viewed as legal advice. We encourage donors to seek legal counsel when making provisions for a charitable gift in their Will.
