Considering a gift in your Will to CHEO will help to ensure that infants, children, youth and families are cared for today and always. The impact of your decision will be felt by the over 500,000 children and their families who come through our doors every year.

As our community grows, CHEO is evolving, and we continue to put the physical and mental wellbeing of families at the forefront of everything we do.

While wait times and staff shortages are a problem throughout the healthcare system in Canada, CHEO is making strides in addressing these challenges by rethinking the way services are offered, partnering with community health agencies and using virtual platforms to rethink the way we serve our community.

In 2024, we launched a campaign to build a new facility on our existing campus, bringing all services under one roof, giving families one location for multiple appointments. When working with children, hope can always be found, and we look to the future with optimism and determination.

You decide how your gift will be used: Urgent needs in the hospital, world-class research conducted at the CHEO Research Institute, a specific program or department in the hospital; Roger Neilson Children’s Hospice – offering palliative and bereavement services; or state of the art equipment that gives our kids the best diagnostic technology and treatment available.

No matter where you decide to direct your gift, you will be changing lives now and in the future. The impact of generous donors creating living legacies by making provisions for CHEO in their Wills will be felt by families for generations.

We would love to talk with you about where you would like to direct your gift, show you how it will make a difference in children’s health and well-being, and clarify the process. Contact Megan Doyle Ray, Director Estates and Legacy Guidance at [email protected] or 613 297-2633 for a confidential conversation.


Forever CHEO is a way to ensure that CHEO will always be here to provide excellent care, lifesaving research and invaluable support to children and their families every day by making a gift from your estate.
