Leaving a Gift in your Will is one of the most extraordinary ways you can ensure your values of supporting life-saving medical research and patient care carry on for future generations.

The RBWH Foundation is honoured to have been left bequests by many valued former patients, staff and community members. A Gift can range from a sum of money to shares, property and more.

These generous gifts have helped the RBWH Foundation support the highest level of patient care and life-saving research.

Gift of Gratitude for Future Generations

In late 2021, a legacy estate of eight properties, gifted to the RBWH Foundation, was auctioned to support advancements in health research and care. The properties were bequeathed to the RBWH Foundation by an elderly couple, who didn’t have children, and wanted to leave a legacy that would support medical research for generations to come.

The amazing gesture has the potential to save lives, both locally and internationally.

“The RBWH Foundation is incredibly grateful to this wonderful couple who donated the properties in their will,” said RBWH Foundation CEO, Simone Garske.

“While the couple remain publicly anonymous, from my understanding, they made the generous decision because they had received such exceptional care at the hospital and wanted to do something extraordinary for others.”

The RBWH Foundation is also exceptionally grateful to Place Estate Agents for generously donating their commission.
