Having a valid Will in place is an important step that ensures your loved ones are provided for, and the causes you care about are acknowledged and supported beyond your lifetime.
However large or small, a charitable bequest can be transformational for generations to come. This month, St Vincent’s Curran Foundation encourages you to make your Will, for free. Without obligation, you may also consider including one of the simplest, yet most profound expressions of gratitude by including St Vincent’s in the form of a bequest.
In the footsteps of the founding Sisters of Charity, St Vincent’s Curran Foundation continues to ‘Keep the Flame Alive’, fostering the charism of delivering healthcare excellence across all facets of the community. The partnership between private and public hospitals and the overall dedication to clinical excellence at St Vincent’s is constantly enabled and advanced by philanthropy in all its forms.
Leaving a gift in your Will helps to bridge the gap in government funding, ensuring that our St Vincent’s Hospitals in NSW maintain exceptional, research-driven, innovative healthcare. Bequests help to underpin general or specific areas of clinical focus, endowing them with essential funding for future development.
If you’re passionate about enabling a society that provides accessible, compassionate healthcare for everyone, regardless of their faith, fortune or heritage, a legacy contribution to St Vincent’s Curran Foundation supports our mission to deliver that vision.
Thank you for thinking about remembering St Vincent’s Hospitals in your Will.
