How a gift in your Will can help us achieve our Vision
One of the most important ways you can help the work of the San Foundation in the future is by including a bequest (gift) in your Will. Without bequest income, the Foundation would not be able to continue to support the wonderful work of the dedicated and passionate team at the hospital.
When creating your Will, firstly provide for your family and friends; and then consider whether you can include a gift to the San Foundation. Whether large or small, every gift is greatly valued because it will help make a real difference to someone's life. Your Will is a reflection of your wishes and the legacy you want to leave.
