Be a Bob

After a lifetime of volunteering and donating to charitable causes, the late Robert ‘Bobʼ Steane gave one last transformational gift through his estate to improve the lives of his neighbours and community.

Bob’s gift in excess of $10 million will promote the arts, address homelessness, accelerate trauma care, advance mental health and medical imaging and support end-of-life hospice care.

Bob believed in the power of philanthropy and giving back whenever he could.

Be a Bob. Make a donation, volunteer or consider including a charity in your estate plans.
