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, or create your Will with 'Willed' 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.

We've partnered with Willed

Creating a Will has traditionally been viewed as an expensive and time-consuming process, stopping many people from completing something so important to them and their loved ones.

Chris O’Brien Lifehouse has partnered with ‘Willed’, an online platform that enables you to complete your legally-binding Will in a few simple steps, from the comfort of your own home.

Willed was created by lawyers and tech experts, but more importantly, real people – to simplify the process of end-of-life planning, saving you time, money and stress.

When you create your Will, you will be asked if you wish to leave a gift. Once your family and friends are cared for, you may wish to leave a percentage of your estate, or a specific nominated amount, to Chris O’Brien Lifehouse. A gift in your Will enables your passions and values to continue beyond their lifetime, creating a meaningful legacy well into the future.
