November is Make a Will Month

Sponsored by the Ontario Bar Association and the Law Society of Upper Canada, Make a Will Month is a province-wide initiative that aims to raise awareness about the importance of having a professionally prepared will.

With research showing that approximately half of Ontario residents do not have a will, it seems many of us could use a reminder to take on this important task. While no-one likes to contemplate their own death, a little thought now is sure to save your loved-ones from additional stress during what will already be a very difficult time.

For many, making a will is a time to reflect on life’s accomplishments and the type of legacy they want to leave. Incorporating a planned gift into your will is a great way to show support for your charity of choice, without affecting your income today. Thanks also to some significant tax advantages, leaving a charitable bequest is becoming an increasingly popular option for those preparing their wills.

A planned gift to Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation makes a powerful statement that you care about the future of health care in our region. By incorporating a legacy gift into your will or estate plan, you can help ensure our important work continues.
