The fight against COVID-19 is far from over and DHCHF is currently fundraising for the changing needs at our hospital.

Making a bequest in your Will is a wonderful opportunity to support Delta Hospital, without giving up assets during your lifetime. A gift in your Will can also have significant tax savings for your estate. When you make a gift through your Will a charitable tax receipt is issued to your estate which can help to reduce or eliminate your taxes.

Types of gifts through your Will

Choosing the type of bequest that is best for you is an important decision when considering making a gift. Here are different ways you can make a bequest in your Will:

  • A specific bequest is a gift of specified cash or piece of property.
  • A residual bequest is a gift of all or part of the residue of your estate after all specific bequests and expenses have been paid out of your estate.
  • A contingent bequest is a gift that will pass to the charity in the event that your beneficiary or beneficiaries should predecease you.
  • You can also choose to designate your gift for a particular purpose. However, it is important to confirm with the Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation first to find out if the specific designation purpose can be met.

Depending on the type of bequest you would like to make, here are a few examples of possible wordings:

I give to Delta Hospital and Community Heatlh Foundation, 5800 Mountain View Blvd, Delta BC …

  • the sum of $______________ OR
  • my property known as _____________(specific property) OR
  • _______ % of the residue of my estate OR the residue of my estate

I give to Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation, 5800 Mountain View Blvd, Delta BC (specific sum or property, a portion or all of the residue of your estate) to be used for

We encourage you to discuss your charitable intentions with loved ones and to always seek legal and financial advice when making a gift in your Will.
