Use the Power of Your Will to Create a Lasting Legacy
Are you interested in starting a conversation with your financial advisor about leaving a gift in your Will to health care at Grand River Hospital? Not sure how to start? We have a tool that can help.
Grand River Hospital Foundation has partnered with Will Power, in a national effort to show Canadians that you have the power to do more with your Will. The free Guide to Talking to Your Advisor, from our partners at Will Power, is a useful tool for beginning and directing the conversation about a gift in your Will with your financial advisor.
Here are a few highlights:
- Open the conversation by sharing your intentions and the causes that are meaningful to you. Talk about why you want to leave a gift in your Will to Grand River Hospital, and what kind of impact you want to make.
- Work with your advisor to better estimate the future value of your estate. Think about what percentage you would like to go to your loved ones, and what percentage to charities in your community such as Grand River Hospital Foundation.
- Speak to your advisor about the best ways to make your gift. Some options, like a gift of securities or life insurance, might come with big tax savings.
