How do I plan for the future of my Hospital?

A Few Simple words in your will can save lives!

Even in difficult economic times, you can still make an impactful gift to your Hospital through a planned gift.

Planned gifts do not affect your current income. Instead, these are gifts of assets that come to the charity after your passing.

The CGMH Foundation recognizes that making a planned gift is extremely personal. A qualified staff member would be pleased to meet with you in confidence to answer your questions about your options, the Dr. A.R. Stephen Society recognition program and designating your gift to a particular area of need. For more information please email plannedgiving[email protected].

The Dr. A. R. Stephen Society

The Dr. A. R. Stephen Society is a unique group of people who have recognized the need for ongoing support of the Hospital and have planned a gift for its future through their wills, life insurance or other estate planning vehicle. Dr. A. R. Stephen was the first physician to practice medicine at the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital. He was a trusted health practitioner and philanthropist who supported the Hospital, his church and various other charities in Collingwood.
