You may already be familiar with the term Philanthropy. Now there is a new buzz word in the world of charitable giving, ‘Willanthropy’, an act by someone who leaves a gift in their Will to charity.

It is a common misconception that only the wealthy can make a meaningful impact through legacy giving in a Will. Willanthropy is something everyone can do. Willanthropy comes in all shapes and sizes, from real estate, shares, or cash to leaving a percentage of your estate to the charity or charities important to you. Everyone who makes a Will can be a Willanthropist!

At Sydney Childrens Hospitals Foundation (SCHF), those who become Willanthropists know that leaving a legacy is an act of kindness making a long-lasting and positive impact on countless lives well into the future.

Leaving a gift in a Will, as little as 1%, can make a significant difference to the future of sick kids and help them live their healthiest lives.

Willantropist Lyn Cecil is a mum of a baby who survived thanks to the wonderful care received at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick in the 1970s. “I’m a retired Mum. I may not be in the position to make a significant donation today, but through my Will, I can in the future.”

By leaving a gift in your Will to SCHF, you can help fund groundbreaking research, purchase vital cutting-edge equipment, and enable SCHF to continue its mission to ensure world-class health care for kids.

“Bequests gifts are a lifeline for children and families and a wonderful legacy to leave for the next generation.” Said Willanthropist Emeritus Professor, Kim Oates AO, former Chief Executive, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

SCHF has partnered with Safewill, Australia’s highest rated online Will writing platform. Safewill makes it quick, easy, and affordable to write your Will online. You will be able to write a Will online, and have it reviewed by Safewill’s legal team to ensure it has been filled out correctly.
