Bequests: A Gift For Future Generations


Make your Will a legacy for families on the Sunshine Coast

Making a Will can save your family and friends stress, money and time. It provides you the opportunity to state who will benefit from your estate which may include bequests to charitable donations such as Wishlist.

A bequest is simply a gift that is written in your Will.

Naturally, you will wish to ensure that your family is provided for first. After this you may decide to direct a gift of cash, property shares or other investments to help improve medical services and enable ground-breaking research to enhance the lives of future generations. You can choose to leave a gift for a particular research area or department, or you may allow us to allocate it to a priority need identified at the time.

Whatever the size or form of your bequest, this gift is one of the most important ways you can make a real difference to the health and wellbeing of families on the Sunshine Coast.

How do I leave a gift?

Leaving a gift in your Will to Wishlist is a simple process.

If you haven’t already done your Will, you can take advantage of our Free Will Service by contacting Wishlist’s pro-bono legal team at Butler McDermott Lawyers on 5441 1044, or the Wishlist office for more information.

You can also contact your solicitor or the executer of your Will to let them know you would like to include Wishlist in your Will. As your Will is a legal document, it is important to have the correct wording to ensure your wishes for a bequest are carried out successfully.

We are very grateful to those that generously remember us and help pave the way for exceptional healthcare and vital research now and into the future.

We acknowledge all gifts of more than $5,000 on the Wishlist Honour Wall in our reception.

  • Cash
  • Property
  • Shares
  • Personal items
  • A specified amount
  • Percentage of money from your estate
  • A specific asset from your estate
  • A perpetual gift
  • Residuary bequest
