GIVING THE GIFT OF SECURITIES FOR QEII VETERA NS’ CARE
in gifts of securities
Gifts of securities – such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds – are just another way donors are impacting health care for Atlantic Canadians. These gifts are an effective way to support a care area close to your heart and an efficient tax strategy. It’s a win-win. To learn more about gifts of securities and how your investment can change and save lives, visit QE2Foundation.ca/securities.
The teams at Camp Hill Veterans Memorial Building and the QEII hospital itself have taken great care of several family members. It feels good to put that investment into health care and make an impact. I’m happy to do it.

Ninety-nine-year-old Beryl has an annual tradition: every holiday, she donates securities in support of QEII veterans’ care and the Veterans Memorial Garden. The gifts are made in memory of her husband, Hugh, and her three brothers — all veterans and avid gardeners. It’s an inspiring sentiment that Beryl’s daughter, Tanya, says her father would be incredibly proud of.
