A Gift in Your Will

About | Solicitor Information | Enquire now | Testimonials | Recognition

After providing for your loved ones, we are grateful to the thoughtful supporters who decide to leave a gift in their Will to the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Throughout our history, gifts in Wills have transformed the lives of our Hospital community. By leaving a gift in your Will today you have the unique opportunity to give our most vulnerable babies, children and families the very best start in life.

Gifts in Wills are supporting the work of Professor Simon Barry, WCH researcher and Chief Medical Scientist, pictured above with cancer patient, Zahli. 

A gift with lasting impact

When you leave a gift to the WCH Foundation in your Will, you are choosing to make a lasting difference to something you care for deeply. Your support means exceptional health care, skilled Hospital staff, high-quality equipment, specialist support programs, and researchers at the forefront of finding treatments and cures.

Your gift will touch the lives of countless babies, children and families who rely on our Hospital. There is no greater gift you can make to the health and care of future generations in South Australia and beyond.
