Giving Back to the Future

What’s your Legacy?

A legacy gift is a living, active reminder of individuals and families like you who care about their communities and support causes that are important to them.

As a benefit to you, your gift can also be a very practical addition to your financial or estate plan for tax purposes. Your support and generosity to Cornwall Community Hospital Foundation is sincerely appreciated.

Together, we can secure the future of local healthcare, right here at home.

3 Ways to Give

Wills and Bequests

Whether it’s a set amount or a percentage of your estate, by making CCHF one of the beneficiaries in your Will, your estate will receive a substantial reduction in estate taxes and you can make a difference for generations to come.


You can make CCHF one of the beneficiaries of your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF). The charitable tax receipt will help offset the tax that would otherwise be payable on your final tax return.

Life Insurance

By making CCHF the beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy, you will receive a charitable tax receipt for your annual premiums. In addition, your estate can receive a larger tax receipt for the total amount if your insurance benefits. This will help offset any taxes that would otherwise be payable upon death. You legacy will be remembered for your philanthropy instead of a large tax payment to the government.
