A Gift in Your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will is about making sure the things that matter to you the most can continue. It`s not about the size of the gift, but more about doing what you can, within your means, to help the causes closest to your heart now, and into the future.

A Gift in Your Will

We all think about the future. How do we want to be remembered by family, friends; the people who have touched our lives? Leaving a charity in your Will is a generous and thoughtful act.

At Hospice Calgary we receive bequests from people who have made a choice to help others in our community. Bequests from our donors, whether small or large gifts, allow us to help grieving children, teens and families through a very difficult time in their lives. You can help these families too.

Knowing that your generosity will help people after you have gone can be very gratifying. Your personal statement on what matters to you can have a profound impact on the families that Hospice Calgary serves.

Grief has no Timetable

“One cold, winter day, my wife died suddenly and unexpectedly. She was 35 years old and had no prior health problems. At the time, my daughter was five and my son was three. Our lives were turned upside down that day, and changed forever. Looking back, I can honestly say that the first year after my wife’s passing was a blur. I was in survival mode - running around, trying to work full time, run a household and be both mom and dad for my children. I was especially worried about my oldest and how her mom's passing would affect her, as she was old enough to know what had happened. I knew I needed to seek counselling for her - thank goodness for Hospice Calgary.

Today we are doing well.  We've come a long way in the last three years - thanks to Hospice Calgary. Sure, there are still tough days when we miss her dearly. But what our counsellor has taught us is its okay to have those days – it’s natural. That grief has no timetable and everyone deals with their grief in their own way. I'm so grateful for everything Hospice Calgary has done and continues to do for me and my children.”
