The Grateful Patient Program is a way you and your family can express gratitude for the care you received. Your donation can honour, thank and recognize a staff member, volunteer, individual or team. Please provide us the name of the individual, team or facility and as much detail as possible and we will recognize them with a letter of acknowledgement, in internal newsletters, and on social media (with permission of course).


Most of us spend our lifetimes contributing to causes that are close to our heart. More and more Canadians are going one step further and leaving a legacy gift to charity through a planned gift. Gifts are gratefully acknowledged through the Foundation’s donor recognition program, and immediate or delayed tax relief is provided. The IEHF is pleased to offer the following meaningful options for planned giving:


Your Will provides you with the opportunity to leave a lump sum or percentage of your estate to the IEHF. Naming the Foundation ensures the values and interests that are most dear to you continue to benefit after you are gone.


You may consider transferring stocks or bonds to the foundation. You will receive a receipt based on the value of your gift.


You can take out a life insurance policy with IEHF as the beneficiary. You pay a small annual premium, but your eventual gift is significant. Tax receipts are issued for all premiums paid. You can also donate an existing policy that is no longer needed and receive an immediate tax receipt for the current cash value of the policy.


A donation of property can create a gift of exceptional importance.  The current value of the property will qualify as a donation for tax purposes. You can also donate property through your Will. Already included the IEHF your Estate planning? Please let us know so we can thank you!

*The IEHF does not provide legal advice. We encourage individuals to seek legal, accounting and financial advice when drafting their Will.
