How will you be remembered?

Every day, thousands of Australians are in the fight of their lives, battling illness and disease. But you can give hope!

After you’ve taken care of your loved ones, you may wish to leave a gift in your Will to The Hospital Research Foundation Group, or the charity within our Group you feel most connected to. A gift of as little as 1% of your estate can make a big difference to lifesaving medical research and patient care in hospitals.

Leaving a Living Legacy

Making a gift while you are still alive is another option you may wish to consider. For some people, they choose to do this by making a donation in honour of a loved one, or by leaving a Living Legacy.

Leaving a Living Legacy means you are able to see first-hand the impact of your gift.

If you choose to leave a Living Legacy, we will connect you with clinicians and researchers advancing lifesaving research and patient care right now. Your gift will help them overcome some of the toughest health challenges facing us now, and future generations.

By making your gift in this way, there may also be a tax benefit for you. It is important to discuss this with your financial advisor or accountant.

Without research, the treatment I received for prostate cancer which saved my life wouldn’t be available. I’ve decided to leave a Gift in my Will to prostate cancer research to save the lives of other men with this devastating disease.
