Build a Legacy

A Gift in Your Will

What will Your Legacy Be?

Ross Memorial Hospital was originally founded by a donation and it continues to be an exceptional community hospital with the help of caring donors like you. Some give because of a personal experience or because they want to give back, others want to make a difference.

Gifts in Memory

Gifts in Memory

When we lose someone dear to us, it can be comforting to share stories of happy times, and to remember the things that made our loved ones so special. Often, we want to do something special in their memory.

With the kind cooperation of local funeral homes, the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation’s memorial giving program allows family and friends to commemorate the lives that have touched them.

When you give a gift to Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation in memory of a loved one, you may choose to direct your gift to one of our programs or campaigns that best reflects the wishes of the individual. Please feel free to contact us to learn more about our current projects.

The Foundation hopes that the memorial giving program assists families, knowing that their kindness will help Ross Memorial continue to respond to local health care needs.

The RMH Foundation gratefully receives hundreds of memorial donations annually. These gifts help us support Ross Memorial Hospital through the purchase of new medical technology, and by improving our patient care facilities.

The Foundation offers its sincere thanks to all who have remembered a loved one through a memorial gift, and also to the area funeral homes who support us by receiving these gifts on our behalf.

Gifts to Celebrate an Occasion

Gifts to Celebrate an Occasion

A celebration gift to the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation expresses to others how much you care. With a celebration gift, you can recognize a loved one’s birthday, anniversary or milestone event, and benefit the community through enhanced patient care at the Hospital, too!

How it works

Simply make a donation to the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation, and let us know what you’re celebrating. We will send a special card to your loved one recognizing your contribution in his or her honour. We’ll also issue you a charitable tax receipt and mail it to you with our thanks. Your loved one’s name will also appear on our e-newsletter, our receipt inserts, and in the local newspaper.

Not a traditional occasion? Not a worry! Give us the details, and we’ll be happy to custom design your special card. With celebration giving, you can give the gift of good health. What could be more special than that?

Showing people how much you care is a special part of life, yet finding just the right gift to express your feelings can sometimes be difficult. For these reasons, the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation has created a program of Tribute Giving.

Every year, people make commemorative gifts to the Foundation. These gifts celebrate a momentous occasion in a loved one’s, friend’s or colleague’s life such as the birth of a child, a wedding, anniversary or special birthday. It can even be that special Christmas gift for that friend or relative that is hard to buy for.

No matter what the occasion, gifts such as these, remind people that they have been remembered in a thoughtful way. Equally thoughtful are the many gifts we receive that honour the memory of a loved one. Our donors tell us that they receive deep satisfaction in making memorial gifts because they know that, in addition to perpetuating the memory of the deceased, they are also helping to enhance local health care.

Whether your intention is to honour or to memorialize, when tribute gifts are received, the donor receives a special card acknowledging that the gift has been made to give to their honoree.

What a thoughtful way to say “I care!”

At a time when people are remembering someone dear, they also thought of Ross Memorial Hospital and extended their support.

With the support of local funeral homes, the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation’s memorial giving program allows family and friends to commemorate the lives that have touched them.

When you give a gift to Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation in memory of a loved one, you may choose to direct your gift to one of our programs or campaigns that best reflects the wishes of the individual.

The Foundation hopes that the memorial giving program assists families, knowing that their kindness will help Ross Memorial continue to respond to local health care needs.

All donations are tax creditable however, tax receipts will not be issued for donations under $10, unless requested. Monthly donors will receive one receipt per year.

As individuals, families or businesses, we select charities that mean something to us. Giving is representative of our personal values and the charities we choose to support say something about us. Giving becomes a legacy - for ourselves and for our community. After we are gone, our charitable donations will speak for us, as the institution carries on the good work we supported during our lifetime.

The Donor Wall recognizes the generosity of those who have supported the Hospital and inspires others to continue in the Tradition of Giving. It features the names of the people who support the good work done at Ross Memorial Hospital.

Your name on the Ross Memorial Hospital donor wall is more than a legacy of your generosity.  It is also an acknowledgment that you have made a difference. We hope your gift inspires others to follow in your footsteps and give to Ross Memorial Hospital.

Every donor who makes a contribution receives a personalized thank you letter and may have his or her name inscribed on our Donor Roll if they wish.  The Donor Roll is a leather bound book permanently displayed at our original donor wall.As your cumulative giving grows, so does your level of recognition.  Plaques vary in size and location, recognizing donors who have reached the following levels:

Category    Cumulative Gift
Supporter        $ 5,000
Provider        $ 10,000
Benefactor           $ 20,000
Patron        $ 50,000
Founder        $ 100,000

 

You may specify the way in which you wish to have your name, your company’s name and the purpose of your gift inscribed on the plaque.  Recognition is based on accrued lifetime giving and your level of recognition will be accommodated as you continue to make contributions to Ross Memorial Hospital. Your contribution can be made in the form of cash, stocks, bonds, real estate, life insurance or other property.
