Why is leaving a legacy to the HOPE Foundation so important?
Leaving a gift in your Will is a very special and personal way of making a positive difference to the health of people living in challenging circumstances where access to quality healthcare is limited.
The HOPE Foundation promotes the collective power of our community to health related projects locally, nationally and internationally. A gift in your Will will support projects that overcome barriers to healthcare.
As the College pays for all administrative costs associated with the HOPE Foundation, 100% of donations and legacies go directly to the projects that the HOPE Foundation supports. So you can be reassured that your gift will make a difference.
Who will your legacy help?
Each year our Board undertakes a grant application and grant giving process. Here are some highlights of recent HOPE Foundation funded projects.
Types of Legacy
There are three main types of gifts you can leave in your Will. Whichever you choose, your gift will help us to make a positive difference to the health of people living in challenging circumstances.
- Pecuniary legacy - a gift of a specified amount of money
- Specific legacy - where a particular item - such as property, jewellery, or shares is bequeathed
- Residuary legacy - where the legacy is expressed in a percentage or remainder of your estate after expenses and other gifts have been deducted
