Special Gift Program
A program which allows you to make an immediate gift to the HHHS Foundation other than a gift of cash.
Special gifts can be a bequest in your will, a gift of a life insurance policy or a gift of a publicly traded security or share.
Special gifts to the HHHS Foundation can be designed to realize your objectives and maximize tax benefits for you.
There are significant tax benefits which will vary depending on the type of gift you choose. Special gifts enable you to make a gift to HHHS Foundation that otherwise would not be possible.
You Can Help Your Family, Friends and Loved Ones One of the ways that you can help the HHHS Foundation benefit your family, friends and loved ones is by making a bequest in your will.
The HHHS Foundation is fortunate to have benefitted from many bequests.
The bequests were instrumental in funding the facilities and continue to provide necessary funds for equipment and technology.
Please consider the nature of your estate. Your obligations and provisions for your family and loved ones are important. Please contact a legal professional to consider your options, to ensure your will is properly drawn and your wishes are clearly implemented. HHHS Foundation thanks you for your consideration of support in this manner.
Life Insurance Policies
The gift of a life insurance policy can be tailored to suit your individual requirements and a life insurance agent can assist you with your decision.
The cash value or premium payments made by you will generate a tax receipt.
The gift of a life insurance policy can result in a very generous contribution to the HHHS Foundation that would otherwise not be possible.
The gift of an existing policy or a new policy is possible.
Publicly Traded Securities & Shares
A gift of marketable securities or shares to the HHHS Foundation can give you not only a tax credit, but also save you tax on any gain in those securities or shares.
To gift securities or shares in the paper format you simply need to endorse the certificates and deliver to the HHHS Foundation.
To gift securities or shares held by you in your account, your financial institution or advisor can transfer them to the HHHS Foundation upon your instructions.
The HHHS Foundation can provide instructions for transferring your securities or shares electronically.
Please contact your financial advisor to ensure the transfer is done properly and to maximize your tax benefits.
Matching Gift Program
Many employers encourage their employees to contribute to charitable organizations by creating matching gift programs. Through these programs, a company will match all or part of your generous donation to the HHHS Foundation, increasing the impact of your contribution to the cause. The individual policy of each company will determine the proportion of the corporate match, and eligibility of full and part-time employees. Contact your human resources department to find out if your company can help your gift go further.

The Foundation has long had in place an educational assistance program for HHHS staff, to offer financial assistance for educational opportunities that will further advance an employee’s knowledge and skills. HHHS encourages all staff to maintain a high level of knowledge and skill in order to provide high quality patient, resident and client care.
The Foundation is also proud to be in the company of many individuals, organizations, and service clubs in our community who are supporting tomorrow’s leaders through graduating student scholarships and bursaries.
In addition to a long-standing bursary for students pursuing post-secondary study in the health care field, in 2022 HHHS and Point In Time came together to create a new award for a student who has demonstrated outstanding participation in the school community or the community at large as a champion for mental and physical wellness, including anti-bullying, anti-stigma, and/or who may be planning to pursue education in one the Helping Professions. This Commitment to Community Health Bursary was inspired by the work of Dave Jarvis, who was a leader at HHHS Mental Health, and an inclusive community programs and services advocate who was dedicated to serving the community well through collaboration, out of the box thinking and leaving no stone unturned as a champion for social justice.
Providing funds for education programs to support current – and future – health care staff is one focus for the Foundation, and a component of HHHS’ recruitment and retention strategy in these times of health human resource challenges. Please advise us if you wish to designate your gift towards our education assistance programs.
