Bequests

Every hour of every day, babies, women and children benefit from the expert staff, dedicated research, specialised equipment, excellent services and enhanced facilities at your Hospital. Much of this would not be possible without you, the supporters and donors of the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation.

The most significant financial help given to the hospital is realised from leaving a gift in a Will to our Foundation. After making sure family and friends are taken care of, there is comfort in knowing that your legacy lives on.

The Wording of your Bequest

The wording of your Bequest is extremely important and requires special attention when drafting your Will.

You can provide these instructions to your Legal Advisor, the State Trustee, Public Trustee or a Trustee Company to complete your request correctly:

I,_______ , give to the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation Incorporated (ABN 99 682 331 968) The rest and residue of my Estate; or _____ __ per cent of my Estate; or _____ __ per cent of the residue of my Estate; or the sum of $_________________ Free of all duties and testamentary expenses for its general purposes and I direct that the receipt of the Chief Executive officer or other proper officer of that organisation shall be sufficient discharge to my executors for this bequest.

All our Bequestors are invited to join like-minded people in our Golden Hearts Bequest Society. Our Golden Hearts members are hosted at special events and provided with behind the scene updates on what is happening in your Women’s and Children’s Hospital as part of this tight knit community.

Since the Adelaide Children’s Hospital was established in the 1870s, the people of South Australia have shown how much they care for our children and their families. From the very beginning, the community has generously responded to help meet their needs both financially and through in-kind support. The most significant financial help given to the hospital is realised from leaving a gift in a Will to our Foundation. After making sure family and friends are taken care of, there is comfort in knowing that your legacy lives on.

With a gift in your Will, you could help invest in vital medical equipment; in programs that bring a few precious moments of respite or escape for a child who has spent days in bed; or in research, making a critical investment in the future well-being of all women and children in our state.

Gifts from bequests can come in many forms depending on your individual circumstances:

  • The residue of your estate e.g. the amount left once you have provided for others
  • A percentage of the overall value of your estate to accommodate growth or reduction in its value over time
  • A set amount of money, an insurance policy, real estate or shares.

“I believe leaving a bequest is more than leaving a financial gift – it’s the chance to perpetuate the values and beliefs one has held as important throughout one’s life… I see leaving a gift in my Will to the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation as an investment in the health of future generations.”
