Plan a Legacy

Your legacy is one of the most impactful decisions in your lifetime—a chance to ensure your values are carried into the future.

Your legacy gift is a planned future gift where your generosity benefits generations to come. It can be made through your Will or another form of designation of various assets to create new healing opportunities for others.

When you leave a legacy gift to the QEH Foundation, you help push the boundaries of what’s possible in medicine on PEI. That’s because your support ensures that Islanders are cared for with the most advanced tools available.

By remembering the QEH Foundation in your estate plans today, you will become a member of our Legacy Society—a special community of donors who are helping shape the future of Island health care.

Ways to Create Your Legacy

How to Give

Leaving a legacy gift is easy. Here are a few ways you can get started.

  • Talk about your options with us. If you have questions about the type of gift you wish to make, how to choose an executor, benefits, or important factors to consider, we can help.
  • Learn about your options on your own time. 
  • Ask your professional advisor for guidance. If you’re all ready to meet with your lawyer or notary, we recommend you bring our address and legal name with you (which we’ve included below).

Please let us know if you would like to receive additional information. We’d be happy to work with you, your family and your advisors on a confidential basis to ensure you meet your goals.
