Will Power

Queensway Carleton Hospital (QCH) Foundation is pleased to announce we have partnered with Will Power, a national movement to educate Canadians on the power they have to make a difference through their Wills.

Can I Really Make a Difference with My Will? 

In short, yes. By leaving a gift to QCH Foundation in your Will you can make a bigger contribution than you ever thought possible to healthcare for our community.  

Many donors believe that they can’t support both their loved ones and their favourite cause with their Will. The truth is, just a small percentage of your estate left to Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation can have a big impact, while still leaving the majority for loved ones. Choosing to support your favourite charities can also reduce and, in some cases, even eliminate the taxes to be paid. A win-win!

Some people also feel they need to be wealthy to make a gift to QCH Foundation in their Will. Actually, no matter the size of your estate, you can be a part of this powerful movement to advance healthcare for tomorrow’s patients. Wondering how your future gift will be used? Find out how we use donations here.

Take a look at the free resources and tools on the Will Power website to learn about the common myths surrounding gifts in Wills, the potential tax benefits, and more.

If you have questions about helping improve patient care at QCH through a gift in your Will, please don’t hesitate to contact Nadine Fowler at 613-323-4611 or nfowler@qch.on.ca.
