Make a gift in your Will

What better legacy could you leave than a brighter future for our sickest and most vulnerable children?

Together we can change the future of children’s health by solving today’s medical challenges and being better prepared for tomorrow’s.

After providing for your loved ones in your Will, you have the opportunity to consider the causes and organisations that have special meaning to you and ask yourself: what would I like my legacy to be?

The 1870 Society

Since the RCH was founded in 1870, bequests have been central to enabling the hospital to provide the best care to our children. This legacy of support has incredible significance for the future for our sickest children and the hospital.

The 1870 Society celebrates supporters who have included the RCH Foundation in their Will. In gratitude, we acknowledge this support in honour rolls within the hospital and in our annual Impact of Giving publication. Members are also presented with a special 1870 Society lapel pin and invited to 1870 Society functions to hear more about the work of the hospital. Anonymity and privacy are always respected.

We want to hear from you

Deciding to make a gift in your Will to the RCH Foundation is an important decision. We are here to help and can:

  • confidentially discuss your ideas on planning a gift in your Will
  • arrange a visit to find out more about the hospital’s work
  • honour your legacy now and into the future

Please let us know if you have already included the RCH Foundation in your Will, or are considering doing so. By informing us of your gift, we can discuss the impact of your generosity and thank you for your support during your lifetime.
