How your gift will be used

A gift in your will provides our hospitals with a reliable source of funding – allowing UHN to accelerate discoveries and provide patients with the world-class care they need and deserve.

The reality is that, just as in life, we don’t know what the future holds. A gift in your will helps ensure a safety net of funding for our hospitals’ future needs.

Donor support helps our hospitals to:

  • Enhance patient care: continuing to improve how, when and where they care for the patients they’re privileged to serve
  • Conduct critical research: pursuing knowledge to develop new and better techniques, and find new treatments and cures
  • Educate healthcare workers: training tomorrow’s leaders, and ensuring they’re well-versed in the latest cutting-edge technologies and methodologies

A gift in your will could be YOUR legacy – making an impact on health care for generations to come.
