A gift in your will
When it comes to your Will, it’s important to look after those who are close to you. Once your loved ones are taken care of, a provision in your Will to ensure the health and well-being of fellow Australians is also important and extremely admirable.
Whether you have a personal connection to the Leukaemia Foundation or simply appreciate the services available for those in need, your support is greatly appreciated. A gift in your Will (also known as a bequest) means essential services such as accommodation for patients and their families, financial support and counselling can continue to be provided for people with all types of blood cancers, including leukaemia, lymphoma, and myeloma.
Your lasting gift will benefit countless others for many years to come as we increase our commitment to research innovations.
The consideration of a gift in your Will is an honourable act of kindness. Please know that every gift, no matter how large or small, is an important step towards our goal of zero lives lost to blood cancer by 2035.
