Bequests

What your Bequest will contribute

Your Will gives you a unique opportunity to leave a lasting legacy and provide for those you love.

Everyone over the age of 18 should have a legal Will and we recommend that you consult a professional legal and financial advisor to discuss your wishes.

Including a gift to Peninsula Health in your Will can help create a lasting legacy and can make a tangible difference to those we care for in the community. A gift is an investment in the future health of your local community.

Including a gift to Peninsula Health will help provide vital hospital equipment; develop and deliver new programs; and help support collaborative new research programs.

By leaving a bequest in your Will to Peninsula Health you will be building a healthier community and saving lives – the most wonderful gift you can give.

How to make a Bequest to Peninsula Health in your Will

Your bequest to Peninsula Health, no matter how small, will make a difference.

We have developed a pamphlet about how to leave a gift in a Will, which can be downloaded from this page. The pamphlet includes information about how to leave a gift to Peninsula Health in your Will, and includes the correct wording – or bequest clause – to use in your Will.  

How you wish to remember Peninsula Health is entirely your decision. You can direct your gift to a specific ward, service or hospital. It is preferable that bequests are earmarked for general use, as areas of need change constantly. However, if you wish, your bequest may be used for a specific purpose.

Your legacy to Peninsula Health can take the form of:

  • A share or proportion of the residue of your estate; or
  • A specified amount of money; or
  • A nominated asset (such as shares or real estate)
