Leave a legacy that means the world to sick kids today, and for generations to come.
Your life is dedicated to caring for family, enjoying friends and sharing in all that your community offers. However, have you stopped to consider how you can continue to nurture your community even after you are gone?
Leaving a legacy is a new beginning. It’s the beginning of one act of kindness making a long-lasting and positive impact to countless lives, well into the future.
By leaving a bequest to Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation, or any of the entities we support you can help fund groundbreaking research, purchase vital cutting-edge equipment and enable the Foundation to continue its mission to ensure world-class health care for children.
Leaving a gift in your Will, no matter how large or small, is a powerful way to make a positive difference to the health and wellbeing of children far beyond your lifetime.
We recommend you discuss the type of gift you intend to make to the Hospital with your family and solicitor prior to finalising your Will.
Types of gifts
The remainder of your estate after considering your loved ones and the deduction of expenses.
A percentage of either the residue or the entire estate such as 25% of estate.
A gift of a specific amount, such as $10,000.
This can be property or shares.
Gift in Will
It is important that your bequest gift is worded correctly, and the following is recommended as a guide. You may give this wording to your solicitor who is preparing your Will.
“I give to Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation, ABN 72 003 073 185,
- The residue of my estate (or __% of the residue of my estate) or
- The whole of my estate (or __% of my estate)
- The sum of $___
- Asset or assets
for which the receipt of the Treasurer or other authorised officer shall be an absolute discharge.”
