Donor's stories

Roland Morneau

Do you know about planned giving?

Planned giving can take many forms. Whether you wish to leave a bequest or donate shares, a number of possibilities are available that will enable you to help HMR patients. Planned giving allows you to support Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont projects that generate progress and extend your generosity over time.

This is what HMR patient Roland Morneau chose to do. Grateful for the care he received, he wanted to contribute to the advancement of science and to the development of new treatments for diseases that are incurable today.

“My way of saying thank you and of paying it forward is to contribute to the HMR Foundation. I’m doing this by donating shares. It is very beneficial from a tax standpoint since the capital gain is exempt from taxation. I get a tax receipt equal to the fair market value of the shares on the day they are received by the Foundation. Everyone wins!”
