                 Why GiveProfessional AdvisorsResourcesContact Us


Our Family of Hope is made up of individuals who have made a future gift to the Alberta Children’s Hospital. The Family of Hope includes donors who have made a bequest, or a gift of life insurance or a gift of RRSPs/RRIFs.

Becoming a member of the Family of Hope is as simple as letting us know that you have made a legacy gift to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation. Everyone who makes a legacy gift is welcomed into our Family of Hope. This is our way of honouring your generosity and commitment to child health and thanking you now for your future gift. We also hope that with your support, others may be inspired to do the same.   

Legacy members are entitled to special recognition at the hospital, invitations to Foundation events, including the Family of Hope Tea, as well as a subscription to our twice yearly Just4Kids newsletter. You also have the option to remain anonymous in terms of public recognition while still receiving invitations to events and our newsletter. The choice is yours.

Meet Barbara Stein 

Barbara Stein

Barbara Stein - or “Auntie B” as she is known to her seven nieces and nephews - has always had a deep love for kids. As a playschool teacher for many years, Barbara learned that we’re all still children at heart, whether we’re four or forty!

It was this love for children that motivated her to make a gift in her Will to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation. “I was at a stage in my life when I was making some changes to my estate plan, and it all came together,” says Barbara of her decision to support the hospital with a legacy gift. “I have always been familiar with the work of the hospital, but when I started asking more questions, it became very clear that this was a cause I could really get behind."

As a member of the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation Family of Hope, Barbara enjoys receiving regular updates about how community support is making a difference for the kids in the hospital. “It is very interesting to hear how families have been helped by the experts at the hospital,” says Barbara. “And having the opportunity to meet families and talk to the doctors and staff at the Family of Hope Tea gives me the feeling that I am part of something much bigger.”
