Make a gift in your will

Leaving a gift in your will to Michael Garron Hospital is a powerful way to ensure the health and well-being of everyone in our community for generations to come.

A century ago, a group of East Toronto residents saw the need for a hospital east of the Don River. They were forward-thinking citizens like you, determined and with a vision for the future of their community.

Today, Michael Garron Hospital continues to serve our community - caring for one of the most diverse populations in the country – from birth to end of life. Our community includes large numbers of newcomers to Canada, seniors who live on their own and many households with low income. We serve every individual with the same goal year over year: first-rate care on a first-name basis.

You are invited to join a century of visionary supporters who care deeply about offering high-quality healthcare with humility and kindness now and for generations to come.

They built a legacy, and you can too by remembering Michael Garron Hospital with a gift in your will.

A gift in your will adds to your unique life story. You may want to show your appreciation for the care you, or a loved one, received. Or, you may want to continue to make your community a better place beyond your lifetime. We are grateful to each person who chooses to honour Michael Garron Hospital with a gift in their will.

Here are some stories of people who decided to make a gift of a lifetime.

“Why do I give to Michael Garron Hospital? Because my money has more impact here than anywhere else. They constantly do more with less, for more people, and for those who need it most. I give here because I know they will stretch every dollar, and my gift will make a difference.” – Margaret Franklin, donor
