Leave a Gift In Your Will
Give heart to future generations by including Heart Research Australia in your Will.
If you are considering leaving a gift in your Will to Heart Research Australia we would like to thank you for your generosity and vision. Despite remarkable advances, heart disease is still the number one killer of Australians. Leaving Heart Research Australia a gift in your Will is one of the most valuable ways to ensure that we can continue our pioneering research well into the future.
Gifts in Wills are extremely important to our work. More than a quarter of our research is funded in this way and it enables the kind of long term planning which is essential in medical research where breakthroughs can take years to achieve.
