Gifts and bequests
Many of our patients and their families choose to give a donation or bequest to us in their will. Areas of benefit include:
- general medicine
- palliative care
Donations and bequests can also be used to assist with the promotion of positive community attitudes towards the necessity and desire of quality health care. Your contribution can be a fixed amount or a percentage of your estate. You can nominate to assist in the general provision of our services or your bequest can be directed towards a specific unit, project or type of service.
How to make a bequest
To assist in the preparation of a bequest may we advise the following wording:
I (name), give ($amount) free of all duties and testamentary expense to Calvary Central Districts Hospital for the purpose of patient care/service development, and I direct that the receipt of the Chief Executive Officer shall be sufficient discharge of my executors for this bequest.
