Planned Giving

Support the Future of Healthcare in Our Community

A Planned Gift is Powerful

When our family members and dearest friends need medical attention, it is vital they receive an exceptional level of care, with dignity and respect, when they need it. Our mission at the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation is to ensure our medical teams have the best equipment and facilities possible to care for our loved ones in all stages of life; from the youngest of patients in neonatal intensive care to the most elderly in extended care.

A planned gift is a thoughtful investment and enables significant funding of equipment, patient comforts and staff education at the facilities served by the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation. Planned gifts allow us to potentially give more than at any other time in our life and demonstrate an unending commitment to excellence in patient care and healthcare innovation.

To provide a planned gift now or a future gift through your Will, we recommend you first consult with your lawyer or estate planner as there are a number of ways to give to the Hospital Foundation including:

  • Charitable Bequests
  • Securities*
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • RRSPs & RRIFs
  • Annuities
  • Life Insurance
  • Property

The Gift of Gratitude

“Our parents’ final few years included many visits to the NRGH Emergency Department. They were always treated with respect and kindness and received top notch medical care by compassionate and professional caregivers. Something they wanted to do in their final wishes was to give back to the facility that had looked after them so well when they needed it.”   Bev and Jeff speaking of their parents’ bequest to the Foundation.
