Welcome

The Aspen Grove Society

If you are a lawyer or financial advisor, please click here.

A gift in your Will to Humber River Hospital Foundation is a promise to provide health, hope and love to your neighbours, forever.

Planned Giving Aspen Grove SocietyImagine you are here with us at Humber River Hospital. One of the first things you’ll see is a lovely public art project Aspen Grove. It was created as a way to honour the diversity in our community. The aspen grove—though it has different colours, different shapes, and different sizes—trees actually come from one root system. The trees don’t have individual roots; they’re connected. That’s our community.

When you join your fellow neighbours by choosing to make a gift in your Will to Humber, you become a member of the Aspen Grove Society, a dedicated group of donors who are connected by your generosity, your kindness and your compassion for the future health of your neighbours.

When you let us know that you have joined our Society, we are pleased to offer you these exclusive benefits:

  • Invitations to events for Society members, including our Doc Talks series, our Donor Reception and other special events
  • Exclusive updates and reports for Society members
  • Recognition on our website and donor wall
  • Gifts over $25,000 have the opportunity to name a room or space in a meaningful program area with your preferred recognition name once the gift has been realized
  • The ability to customize your giving through Life Insurance, RRSPs, RRIFs, and more
