Leave a legacy today that will impact the future of Kid’s healthcare. Sydney Children Hospitals Foundation
A new year often brings a renewed sense of vigor and commitment. We often look back and reflect on those moments those moments that have bought us joy and those that have taught us what to value in our life… and perhaps this new year you have made a resolution. A resolution to make a difference or make a change you’ve wanted for some time.
This year, Sydney Children Hospitals Foundation (SCHF) encourages you to make your New Year’s resolution a new Will.
Over 50% of Australians who should have a Will don’t! There is no magic formula to say when you should have a Will, but there are life milestones when it’s valuable and important to do so. Your first job, getting married, having a child, travel, buying a home, retirement, grandchildren. Your Will is a living document and should be updated when your life changes.
Leaving a gift in your Will to the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation or any other charity is one way to ensure your memory and legacy will support future generations. A gift in your Will, large or small will ensure vital work continues, such as medical research, clinical trials, world class hospital facilities and great advancements in health care for kids in the community.
A gift in a Will goes a long way to improving health outcomes for kids like Lachie, who lives with cystic fibrosis.
For the first year of his life, Lachie battled virus after virus, and his family struggled to come to grips with everything. But while it hasn’t always been easy, Lachie’s family are grateful for the incredible support team that surrounds them at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
“There’s just so much extra that they do for the kids to make their experience not just better; they actually make it really wonderful.” – Lara, Lachie’s mum.
Make 2023 the year YOU make or update your Will and include a gift to charity. A gift that will make the world of difference to sick kids, like Lachie, who need and deserve our care and support.
