1884, The Hospital for Sick Children

In the 1800’s the difficulties for Queensland families wanting to access medical treatment for their sick children were incomprehensible.The drive and vision of the very first group of committed extraordinary women and men who saw the need for the children’s hospital has allowed present day families and communities access to the medical life-saving advances that were once thought to be an impossible dream.

2021, Queensland Children's Hospital

It is important we remain active in supporting and enabling continuous change so that we can build on the medical discoveries of those before us. Leaving a gift in your will gives hope for future generations.

Ways to leave a gift to the Children's Hospital Foundation

Leaving a Percentage Share

This is the most flexible approach to leaving a gift. You do not need to know how much your estate will be worth, you just need to give some consideration to the size share you would like to leave to each beneficiary.

Residual Gift

This is a gift of part or all of what is left in your estate once your loved ones are cared for.

Pecuniary Gift

This may seem a simple approach to making your will, however making a gift of $10,000 today will not have the same impact as years to come.

Property, Possesions, Shares & Insurance

You may wish to leave property, specific possessions, shares, or insurance. We recommend that you discuss the precise Will wording needed for your specific situation with your solicitor.
