Your legacy dreams can become a reality in many different ways. Some options for you to consider might include:

Why Make a Legacy Gift?
Our Legacy donors have different stories and motivations for their decision to include a legacy gift in their estate planning. Below are stories of people in our community who needed our hospitals and how gifts from supporters like you have changed their lives!
Laura Weimer knew something was wrong when she felt what she thought was a hole in her nine-month old daughter Luna’s head. That hole turned out to be a large cancerous tumor that needed to be removed immediately in an agonizing eight-hour surgery. The surgery went well and after Luna recovered, she began inpatient chemotherapy at Regina General Hospital. Laura says she feels “lucky and blessed to still have Luna right now. Everyone was so attentive to what she needed and what I needed. I can’t imagine being somewhere else where the care wasn’t like that.” Read Luna's full story by clicking here.
“I did very well in my career, so I want to help the community. It’s nice to do something good for other people,” says Phyllis Lamb. Phyllis decided to make a difference by naming Hospitals of Regina Foundation as the owner and beneficiary of her life insurance policy, as well as include a bequest to the Foundation in her Will. Phyllis came to this decision shortly after her husband Vern became sick and required care. “You don’t really have a clue until you need it,” she explains.
