Include a Gift in Your Will
A Gift in your Will is one of the most thoughtful and significant ways to leave a lasting legacy for future generations. Whatever the size or form of your bequest, it will enable the Foundation to further support and provide world class health care services and facilities for babies, children and adults – now and into the future.
Your support will help improve health care services and outcomes for patients across our health facilities, including Gold Coast University Hospital, Robina Hospital, and community-based health centres such as family and child health, post-operative care, rehabilitation and mental health.
Every gift, large or small, matters. If you would like to include a gift to Gold Coast Hospital Foundation in your Will, you can choose to leave a gift for general charitable purposes, meaning the funds are directed where needed the most. Alternatively, you can outline a specific purpose for your gift to help a particular department or cause that is close to your heart.
