Never losing someone you love to heart disease

Your dream.

Our goal.

Our goal is for a future where heart disease is a preventable and treatable condition. Research will make that happen. Heart Research Australia supports research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease so we can reduce the devastating impact heart disease has on families and the community. 

As first-stage research does not often qualify for government funding, Heart Research Australia relies on support from generous donors so our researchers can transform their ideas into life-saving treatments.

A gift in your Will, no matter how small, even a gift of 1% of your estate, will make a positive impact and help improve heart health for all Australians.

In the video below you will hear from some of our supporters and why they have chosen to leave a gift in their Will to Heart Research Australia.


How to leave a gift in your Will

Here are some easy steps to make or update your Will:

  • Make an appointment with a solicitor for legal advice and to write or update your Will, or you can write your Will through Australian online Will writing platform such as Safewill.
  • Ensure you provide for your family and loved ones. 
  • Consider the type of gift you would like to leave for charity (such as a % of your Estate of specific amount). Use our correct name (Heart Research Australia) and ABN number (62 002 839 072).
  • Name an executor to administer your estate.
  • Sign your Will (while witnessed), and keep it in a safe place.
  • Please let us know. We would love the opportunity to thank you and keep you informed.
