Gifts and bequests
Many of our supporters choose to leave a gift or bequest to us in their will. Areas of benefit include:
- general medicine
- Calvary Community Council
- Mary Potter Foundation

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.
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 St John’s 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.
Making a difference at Calvary St John’s Hospital
Calvary has been part of the Tasmanian community for over 70 years.
As a not-for-profit organisation we reinvest all funds into services for our sites to ensure ongoing improvement.
We would like to call upon your help to assist with building and improving our community of care through donated funds. Your kind donation will provide support to a wide range of services including specialist staff such as Cancer Care Coordinator, our Maternity and Special Care Nursery, Accident and Emergency Department, Acute Medical and Surgical Units and our Palliative and Oncology Unit.
Donated funds also drive our Community Benefit Program, including Calvary Community Grants and The Mary Potter Foundation. Your generous gift of healing will enable us to keep alive the vision of the Venerable Mary Potter.
