Today is the best time to think about tomorrow. We all want to make the world a better place for our children and grandchildren, who will lead the way into the future.

Leaving a gift in your will is a wonderful way to build a better tomorrow and leave a lasting legacy in your name. When you make a legacy gift to Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation, you are making a meaningful statement about your commitment to health care excellence throughout the region for generations to come.

Please consider joining our many wonderful legacy donors who are choosing to make a positive difference in the lives of patients and families by funding vital equipment purchases, important medical research, the redevelopment of patient-care spaces and the ongoing education of health care professionals.

Providing life-saving equipment for our exceptional medical team

Especially since the government does not fund equipment purchases at our hospitals, the support of legacy donors is crucial to ensuring that the clinical teams at Hamilton Health Sciences have the state-of-the art equipment required to provide the best possible care. From the tiniest surgical tool to the largest piece of diagnostic equipment, legacy gifts help to keep Hamilton Health Sciences on the leading edge of care in our region, the province and the country.

Much of the medical equipment in our hospitals has a limited lifespan and legacy gifts help to make critical upgrades possible. Gifts also enable the purchase of important single-use resources that must be replaced on a continual basis.  

Toward new research frontiers

Legacy gifts also support the work of exceptional researchers at Hamilton Health Sciences, who are expanding the horizons of medical knowledge on a global scale with their ground-breaking research initiatives. Often collaborating with other institutions around the world, these researchers are providing new insights into the human body and treatments for various diseases and medical conditions.

Research leads to the treatments and cures of tomorrow, benefitting patients of all ages – throughout south-central Ontario and beyond. Advances in medical knowledge ultimately benefit everyone, regardless of national borders.

Development of facilities and staff

Sometimes, facilities at Hamilton Health Sciences hospitals also require upgrades in order to provide the best possible patient experience. This includes minor renovations and, oftentimes, major expansions of patient-care spaces. Gifts from legacy donors enable these upgrades to ensure that patients and health care workers always have access to optimal environments for healing and working.

As technology develops, medical knowledge progresses and standards of care evolve, so the ongoing education of health care professionals is extremely important. Legacy gifts also support the professional development of individuals across Hamilton Health Sciences, enhancing their capacity for delivering health care excellence.

Into a brighter future

Now is the perfect time to make a meaningful impact in your community by supporting the future of health care in the region. You can make a positive difference in the lives of patients and families, today and into the future.
