Leaving a Gift in your Will

Legacy giving is a reflection on how you want to be remembered – by your family and your community. It is the planning of your most significant charitable gift – no matter the size – that will memorialize your philanthropic values, while balancing your family commitments and financial needs.

When you give for the future, you are leaving a legacy – an echo of your values and commitment to your community. Your gift will ensure that superior health care is available and accessible to all who live, work here and visit our area.

A donation in your will, known as a bequest, allows you to create a legacy for the Mackay Hospital Foundation once your needs and those of your loved ones have been met.

Many Ways to Give


There are many ways you can leave this deeply personal gift:

  • A specified sum of cash, or a percentage of the overall value of your estate
  • A gift of real estate
  • An investment (stocks, bonds, shares, artwork, etc.)
  • Create an endowment fund in the name of your family or a loved one
  • A residual gift (i.e. the balance of your estate after all other provisions/bequests have been met)
  • Any combination of any of the above

You can designate your gift to the area and hospital close to your heart. Unrestricted donations will be applied to the area of Greatest Need or our Endowment Fund.

Many Ways to say Thank You


If you are planning to make a gift to the Foundation, please let us know. We would like to say thank you. We will work with you to recognise your gift in the way that best suits your wishes, including anonymity if that is your preference.
