How to leave a
gift in Will

“By coming together, our lives can touch and affect many individuals whom we may never meet.”

— Professor Chris O’Brien AO

While your Will thoughtfully bequeaths your estate to the ones you love, your Will can also benefit people you may never meet – people such as patients, researchers, medical and surgical teams.

Leaving a gift to Chris O’Brien Lifehouse in your Will is an extraordinary act of generosity and will have a transformative impact on the lives of many, enhancing patient care, supporting services and programs and enabling research to find improved outcomes for our patients and their families who are affected by cancer. After providing for your loved ones, leaving a gift to Chris O’Brien Lifehouse ensures your legacy will impact the lives of many others, and make lasting change to people living with cancer.

When thinking about leaving a gift in Will, it's important to undertake the following steps to ensure your wishes are properly planned and documented:

  1. Contact one of our team members to let us know that you're considering leaving a gift in your Will to Chris O'Brien Lifehouse. This way we can provide you with any further information you may need.

  2. Get in touch with your solicitor and make sure you've had a look at our "suggested wording" page.

  3. It is important to talk to your loved ones and executors of your estate about your decision - this will ensure your final wishes are carried out.

  4. Once you have changed your Will, let one of our team members know so we can thank you personally, and keep you up to date on the amazing impact your lasting legacy will have on patients and their families at Chris O'Brien Lifehouse.
