Ways to Give: Estate Planning

Welcome to Estate Planning - Write your own story.

We have partnered with Will Power, a national movement to educate Canadians on the power of making a difference through their Wills. Many people believe they can’t support both their loved ones and OHF with their Will. The truth is, a small percentage of your estate left to OHF can have a big impact, while still leaving the majority for loved ones.  No matter the size of your estate, you can be a part of this powerful movement for change.  Read more at Will Power.


Your legacy can help shape the future of community healthcare.

If you are considering including a gift for the Oakville Hospital Foundation (OHF) in your estate planning, we thank you. Leaving a gift in your Will is a deeply personal decision that is an expression of your values and what’s truly important to you. With your gift, you will be leaving a vision of hope that will ensure Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital (OTMH) continues to support the changing needs of healthcare for our community.

OTMH takes pride in providing exemplary patient care, whether we are treating broken limbs or life-threatening illness. And just like our patients, gifts left in Wills come in all shapes and sizes. Each and every one is deeply appreciated. A gift planned in your estate costs nothing in your lifetime and can reduce the tax burden on your beneficiaries. And yet, it’s so much more. Your gift is your legacy for the next generation and the community you love.

As personal as an estate gift may be, it can spark the passion to give in other members of our community. When you choose to let us know about your planned gift, we are able to share your vision, with your permission, showing you the appreciation your generosity deserves.

There are numerous ways to frame a legacy gift and several options have been provided here to help you decide what is right for you as you discuss planning your estate with your family and advisors.

If you have questions, we are here and happy to talk with you.
