A gift made in your Will, also known as a bequest, is one of the simplest ways to make a significant gift - perhaps larger than you ever thought possible - to help the kids at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. Bequests may be directed to a particular of the hospital that is meaningful to you. Even if you choose not to designate your bequest, you can be assured it will go to the highest priority needs at the hospital. Currently, undesignated bequests are directed to important research initiatives at the Alberta Children's Hospital Research Institute.
