The power of your Will: Delta couple shares passion for community healthcare

George and Brenda were long-time, passionate donors of Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation, supporting the needs of Delta Hospital since 1999. After Brenda passed away in January 2008, George wished to acknowledge the outstanding care that Brenda had received by making a gift in memory of his beloved wife.

In 2015, George learned about the Diagnostic Services Campaign that the Foundation had just launched. This campaign funded the new Peter C. and Elizabeth Toigo Diagnostic Services Building which enhanced and improved both the laboratory and medical imaging departments at Delta Hospital.

By pledging his support through a generous gift to the campaign, George was incredibly proud to help the DHCH Foundation reach their goal of raising $7.5 million toward the project.

The Foundation team continued to get to know George over the years and thoroughly enjoyed learning about his and Brenda’s happier times, especially the memories he shared of their weekend home on Pender Island.

Sadly, George passed away in 2023 and the Foundation lost a very special friend. However, his and Brenda’s legacy live on through a bequest George made in his will to the Foundation.

The impact of their generosity will help ensure the best healthcare possible for our community today and for future generations.

Leave a legacy for causes that matter most to you

George truly touched the hearts of all those at the Foundation and will not be forgotten, and his generosity shows how we can continue making a difference in our community after we’re gone.

Making a bequest in your Will, after supporting your loved ones, is a wonderful opportunity to support the Delta Hospital Campus of Care, without giving up assets during your lifetime.

In addition, a gift in your Will can also have significant tax savings for your estate. After making a gift through your Will, a charitable tax receipt is issued to your estate which can help to reduce or eliminate taxes owned.
