Excelsior Legacy Society - What is a Legacy Gift

A legacy gift – also known as a planned gift - is one of the most meaningful types of gifts that you can provide to Hillfield Strathallan College. With a legacy gift, you can make a tremendous impact on the future of HSC and its programs, while enjoying significant tax savings.

Why make a gift of this kind?  When creating a legacy gift you are able to leave something truly meaningful for future generations of HSC students and the HSC community. Your gift will improve educational opportunities for generations of HSC students to come in a personal and meaningful way.

Creating a legacy gift through your estate plan provides a wonderful way of utilizing your assets to realize your philanthropic goals.  It can also eliminate significant taxes owed from your estate.

We encourage everyone who is considering making a gift through their estate to speak with their financial advisor to ensure you are maximizing the benefits to you. HSC’s Advancement Office would also be pleased to work with you and your advisors confidentially and with no obligation.   We can help to establish and confirm the purpose for which your legacy gift is to be used, explain tax benefits for your estate, and appropriately recognize your gift (if you wish) in your name or that of someone you love.

To create your legacy, or for more information contact Marnie Helmy, Manager of Advancement at or 905-389-1367 ext. 107.

If you have already created your legacy gift, click here to notify HSC of your plans so that we may ensure proper administration of your gift and extend our thanks to you.
