Leave a Gift in your Will

By leaving a gift to the IWK in your Will, you help ensure Maritime women and children continue to have a healthy future.

Your gift to the IWK not only provides tremendous personal satisfaction, but also helps to provide care for generations to come.

You've spent a lifetime building your legacy and it's important to make decisions as to how it will continue to make a difference. Planned gifts made to the IWK will outlast your lifetime and touch the lives of future generations.

You can make a difference.

As a mom I want Andrea’s wishes to help other children, be fulfilled and live on in perpetuity. That is why I am leaving a gift in my Will to Andrea’s Endowment Fund to help others in need.
