Let your life be a legacy t​o a healthier future for everyone. When you next update your Will, please consider including a bequest gift to the Florey. You could make a bigger gift than you ever thought possible. You will also be letting your family know what your wishes are.

 

A bequest is an easy and powerful way to help our researchers to understand the brain and to develop innovative treatments and care. It lets you make the significant gift you have always dreamed of but costs you nothing in your lifetime.

 

It’s never too late to make a will - everyone needs a one. Without it, your Estate will be distributed according to a legal formula, not according to your wishes. In fact, everyone should update their Will as life circumstances change.

 

If you haven't already done so, please consider including The Florey when you next update your Will. Alternatively, speak with your solicitor about adding a codicil to your existing Will.

 

It’s easy to make a bequest to The Florey. Simply nominate your gift using our suggested wording below when you revise or make your Will. Please let us thank you. If you have already made a bequest to the Florey in your Will, please let us know so that we can thank you, and keep you informed of our research achievements. It will also ensure that your wishes are carried out and provide the greatest benefit to our research in the future.

 

If you need help or would like to discuss your bequest, our Bequest Manager, Irene Crebbin, is happy to talk with 03 8344 1478 or by email at irene.crebbin@florey.edu.au
