Remembering the Hospital

Wills are about taking care of what matters to you, and leaving gifts that make a difference. That’s true when the beneficiaries are institutions as well as people. Many people make a meaningful final gift through a bequest to Scarborough Health Network Foundation. Making a Gift by Will is about expressing your values and beliefs long after you are gone.

When you remember Scarborough Health Network Foundation in your will, you automatically become a member of the Legacy Circle – a club that recognizes this special group of donors.

Greer Elcombe is among the hospital supporters who have made arrangements to remember this treasured cause in his will. “I trusted the hospital to bring my children into the world safe, sound and thriving all those years ago.  That trust has only grown with the level of care I’ve been privileged to receive in the years since,” says Greer. “The hospital has provided great health care to me and my loved ones, and I want to make sure our community receives the same top notch care in the years to come.”
