A gift of thanks – Looking for a way to say thank you to a Queens General Hospital staff member? Express your gratitude to a doctor or a nurse by making a gift in their honour.
In honour of a loved one – Dedicating your donation In Honour of family members or friends offers a unique way to celebrate a milestone in someone’s life, such as a birthday, anniversary or retirement.
A gift made in memory is a meaningful way to honour a friend or loved one. Your special gift can help recognize an individual’s impact on your life, express condolences to family members, and enhance healthcare in your community.
Note: Memorial cards are also available at Chandler’s Funeral Home.
Legacy giving is a wonderful way to ensure you have a lasting impact on your community, well beyond your lifetime. By leaving a gift to the Queens General Hospital Foundation in your will, you can help support your local community hospital and provide quality healthcare to your friends, neighbours and loved ones, for years to come. You may wish to designate a specific sum of money, an asset such as an investment, a portion of your estate, or the proceeds of a life insurance policy.
To learn more about creating your legacy, please contact Robert Cook, Fundraising Chairman by phone 902-354-2066 or by email at email@example.com.
Note: We encourage you to discuss any form of planned giving with your legal and/or financial advisor. Should you decide to leave a gift in your will, this can be made out to Queens General Hospital Foundation, Charitable Tax #: 889162392RR0001.
A gift of securities, such as stocks or mutual funds, entitles you to a donation receipt for the full market value of your contribution, while eliminating any capital gains tax on your donated investments.
Note: Securities must first be transferred to the Queens General Hospital Foundation in order to receive your tax benefit. We suggest you discuss these options with your financial advisor before proceeding.

Hustle activities include tables of books, plants, vegetables, baked goods, and unique treasures. An auction and Docs’ Dogs are annual favorites.
The Auxiliary also operates the Gift Shop, Monday – Friday: 9:30am – 4pm and Saturday: 1pm – 4pm, on the main level of Queens General Hospital.
