Giving Through Your Living Will

Many individuals are choosing to name the CRH Foundation in their wills, after first providing for their loved ones. Such gifts, known as bequests, are vitally important to the Foundation's mission to look after the hospital's most important current and future needs.

Through your will, a legacy can be achieved with a gift of a specific sum of money, a percentage of an estate, or the gift of a specific property or a particular asset. The gift can be unrestricted, allowing the Foundation Board to decide the best use of gift, or you can direct it for a specific program or purpose.
