George and Brenda Holland were passionate longtime donors of Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation (DHCH Foundation) supporting the needs of Delta Hospital since 1999. After Brenda passed away in January 2008, George wished to acknowledge the outstanding care that Brenda had received by Delta Hospital by making a gift in memory of his beloved wife.
In 2015, George learned about the Diagnostic Services Campaign that the Foundation had just launched. This campaign funded the new Peter C. and Elizabeth Toigo Diagnostic Services Building which enhanced and improved both the laboratory and medical imaging departments at Delta Hospital. He was incredibly proud to be able to assist the Foundation to reach their goal of raising $7.5M toward the project by pledging his support through a generous gift to the campaign.
The Foundation team continued to get to know George over the years and thoroughly enjoyed learning about his and Brenda’s happier times, especially the memories he shared of their weekend home on Pender Island.
Sadly, George passed away in 2023 and the Foundation lost a very special friend. However, his and Brenda’s legacy will live on through a bequest George made in his will to DHCH Foundation. George truly touched the hearts of all those at the Foundation and will not be forgotten. The impact of their generosity will help ensure the best healthcare possible for our community today and for future generations.
Remembering Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation (DHCH Foundation) as part of your estate planning helps build a strong and vibrant future for the hospital and the community.
After supporting your loved ones, you can choose to leave an estate gift in your Will that can help transform healthcare in Delta for future generations. Making a bequest in your Will is a wonderful opportunity to support the Delta Hospital Campus of Care, without giving up assets during your lifetime.
A gift in your Will can also have significant tax savings for your estate. When you make a gift through your Will a charitable tax receipt is issued to your estate which can help to reduce or eliminate your taxes
