Gifts in Wills

Leave a legacy that will protect heart health for future generations

A gift in your Will has the power to protect generations of Australian hearts.  

A gift in Will, also known as a bequest or legacy, is simply a gift you leave to a charity in your Will. It is a popular way to leave a meaningful legacy for future generations. It is an opportunity to make a donation to a charity if you have not been able to during your lifetime.  

By leaving a gift to the Heart Foundation in your Will, you can make a lasting impact in the fight against heart disease. These generous contributions play a vital role in supporting our ongoing efforts to combat this widespread condition.  

A gift in your Will, no matter how small or large, will help ensure that vital heart research can continue well into the future.  

Together, let’s ensure a healthier future for all Australians.
