Leave a gift
in Your Will

Create a legacy for the future

Philanthropy is about thoughtful giving and making a conscious choice for investing in the greatest impact now and for future generations.

New research directions will deliver improved healthcare, more targeted treatment and ultimately the hope of prevention. But Australia faces major challenges in funding paediatric healthcare, due to rising costs and growth in demand.

Our Patron, Emeritus Professor Les White AM, has seen how past bequests have helped to deliver significant impact.

“As Patron of the Foundation I have the privilege and the opportunity to continue my work, and most importantly to help children and their families. I see children’s healthcare continuing to evolve, embracing scientific discovery, knowledge, innovation and new technology - always balancing that with compassion, caring and humanity.

“To make the world a better place we need to look after the health and wellbeing of our children. A gift in your Will to the Foundation is a contribution to everybody’s future.” - Emeritus Professor Les White AM.
