The Shelter Legacy Program is an endowment fund where donations are pooled and permanently invested as capital. Only the annual investment income is spent to support the work of the MHWSS.
By investing in the Shelter Legacy Program you are building an important legacy that will ensure that programs and services are available for families fleeing family violence in our community - now and in years to come. When you make a gift to the Legacy Program, the capital remains intact, and only income earned is used. This perpetuates your gifts for the benefit of generations to come and allows the Medicine Hat Women's Shelter Society to make long-range plans with the security and stability to expand our programs and services to more people in need.
Not only are you providing essential philanthropic support and stability to our organization and help for families and individuals in the future, but you have the opportunity to join a remarkable group of individuals who receive invitations to exclusive events and formal recognition through printed materials like our Annual Report.
We are currently just $25,000 shy of our 2018 goal for the Shelter Legacy Program - will you help make a better future for Medicine Hat?
