Gifts leave powerful legacy
Estate gifts have a powerful impact on our community. When Victoria Hospitals Foundation donor Lynda Mottershead was planning her estate, she wanted to leave a legacy of exceptional care. Thanks to her generosity and thoughtful foresight, the Archie Courtnall Centre at the Royal Jubilee Hospital has been renovated to better serve patients from across the region that need emergency psychiatric services.

The centre provides psychiatric care and intervention services that can make all the differencein some of the most fragile times of patients’ lives. Last year, the centre helped more than 1,500 patients.

Ms. Mottershead left a residual bequest to the Victoria Hospitals Foundation after ensuring her loved ones were taken care of. Lynda’s legacy is not only helping current patients of the Archie Courtnall Centre, but patients and families that will pass through its doors for years to come.

Estate gifts help the Victoria Hospitals Foundation make significant contributions to our hospitals in all areas of care. Planned giving allows donors to make a charitable gift that maximizes tax and financial benefits — and leave a legacy of good health.
