Leave A Gift In Your Will

Thank you for considering making a gift to SAHMRI in your Will. You will leave a legacy of lasting impact to benefit the health and lives of all Australians – now and in the future.

When you include SAHMRI in your will, you will change lives by helping us:

  • discover treatments for people living with Alzheimer's disease
  • get cutting-edge cancer research into clinics - and patients - as soon as possible
  • find better ways to treat depression
  • empower Aboriginal communities to direct the research that affects them
  • uncover why so many people suffer heart attacks
  • understand how our immune system interacts with vaccines
  • create the best possible outcomes for mothers and their babies

You have the power to achieve this and much more.

And leaving a gift for the general purpose of health and medical research allows SAHMRI the flexibility to direct your gift to the area of most need, or closest to a medical breakthrough, at the time. This can make the most significant impact to the health and wellbeing of South Australians in the future.

If you prefer, we can ensure your gift supports the area you are most passionate about.

Ways To Leave A Gift In your Will

You can either include the bequest when you write your Will or simply add one as a codicil to your existing Will.

It's important to talk to your loved ones about your intentions and let them know that leaving a gift to medical research is important to you.

This can help to ensure that your intentions and wishes are carried out.

There are a number of ways you can make a bequest to SAHMRI:

  • A residual gift which is a share or whole of your estate after providing for family and friends.
  • A percentage of the overall value of your estate which allows for growth or depreciation in the value of your estate.
  • A specified sum of cash.
  • A gift of real estate, stocks, bonds, shares, artwork, jewellery etc.
