Legacy Gifts - Bequests in Wills

The Great Bear Society

The Great Bear Society is a community of people who are creating a lasting legacy by leaving a gift in their will to the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation.

These Great Bears stand confidently in the name of something bigger than themselves and act as defenders of hope for our sickest kids. They give generously in support of families they may have never met and to a cause that may never touch them directly.

The Great Bear Society builds a brighter future for thousands of vulnerable children across Western Canada. These guardians of children’s health help the Stollery pursue excellence. They are the rock families stand on during extraordinary battles.

Great Bears protect our Little Bears, and their gifts change lives forever.
