A legacy honouring Life
A precious gift to medical research in your Will
A bequest is a precious, personal gift. Not only will it honour your memory, your generosity will provide a lasting legacy to enable the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) medical professionals and researchers to find better treatments, better care and ultimately cures.
Your kind gesture will help to ensure a healthier future for your children, grandchildren and generations to come.
After all, whether it is heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, dementia or any other medical complication, we all need expert care at some stage of our lives. The impact of serious illness or injury impacts not only ourselves, but also family and friends.
We know that your support is a personal commitment, so you are welcome to nominate the area of medical research that you wish your bequest to be directed. And rest assured that your gift stays right here in South Australia, supporting local medical advancements.
The RAH Research Fund will always handle your bequest wisely and respectfully. Our Charter is our commitment to you.
