Donations, gifts and bequests
Many of our supporters choose to make a donation, leave a gift, or bequest to us in their will. Areas of benefit include:
- Cancer Services
- Emergency Department and Intensive Care
- General medicine
- Mental Health
- Palliative Care / Clare Holland House
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 will go on helping us through the 21st century. 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.
Our palliative care services assist family members and friends of patients in our specialist palliative care services to support their loved one through their treatment and end of life care.
Often these family members, close friends and associates of the patient wish to make a donation as a tribute to their friend or in recognition of the care we provided.
We are grateful for any donations made, and those are used to ensure other patients and families receive similarly high quality and compassionate care.
Donations to Clare Holland House can be made quickly and safely through our fundraising program on the Hands Across Canberra Community Foundation website. This is a secure and safe donation process with no service charges or administration fees being taken from your donation. Calvary acknowledges the support of the Snow Foundation in establishing this fundraising program, click here to find out more about the program.
All donations to Clare Holland House are tax-deductible.
