Leave a Lasting Legacy

Through a planned gift to Ronald McDonald House Charities Southwestern Ontario, you can help families have a welcoming, safe and supportive place to call home as many times and nights as they need.


The O’Reilly family has been using Ronald McDonald House London since their son Dean was born with a rare genetic condition that requires ongoing care at London Children’s Hospital. With the family making regular trips to London – staying at RMH for more than 60 nights over the past eight years – having a familiar place to call their "home-away-from-home" makes all the difference.

The House brings the family peace of mind by keeping Dean’s parents close by to care for him, his big brother there to look out for him and his little sister ready to give him lots of kisses. Through a planned gift to Ronald McDonald House Charities Southwestern Ontario, you can help families like Dean’s have a welcoming, safe and supportive place to call home as many times as they need, for as many nights as they need. You will be remembered for your generous support of families with seriously ill or injured children.

 

Why Make a Planned Gift?

As part of your long-term financial planning, a planned gift can offer you substantial tax and estate planning benefits and allow you to make a lasting gift to Ronald McDonald House Charities Southwestern Ontario. Recent amendments to Canada’s tax laws allow you to help RMHC care for future families without affecting your income today or the legacy you wish to leave for your family.
 

What Options Are There?

Some of these opportunities include a Bequest in your Will, a gift of a Registered Retirement Fund (RRSP/RRIF), or a gift of Life Insurance. If Planned Giving is something that you are interested in, we recommend that you consult with a professional advisor or legal professional.
