"We love that our gift will let others get the best possible care in the future" - Kurt and Leonie 

Types of Gifts 

Making or updating a Will is very straightforward, however we do recommend you seek professional legal advice to ensure that your wishes are clearly and legally stated.

Once you have taken care of your family and loved ones, your gift to the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation can take a number of forms:

  • The residue of your estate
  • A percentage of the value of your estate, or
  • A specific amount of money, item of property or life insurance

Our friendly discrete staff will be pleased to help you with details or support to ensure your intent is detailed correctly with your Will. For more information please call 02 9382 4085.

Making a planned gift

A planned gift may be done in the same way but as it’s done in your lifetime we have the chance to thank you in person.

Our Nightingale Society 

A valid and current Will is of vital importance in managing our personal affairs. It is a fact that around 50% of Australians will pass away without a valid Will. A legal Will provides the means of ensuring that possessions are passed on to family, friends and organisations of your choosing, not the decisions of Government which is what happens now when you pass away without having a valid Will.

A number of our supporters who are Solicitors have generously accepted an invitation to be a Nightingale Solicitor for the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation. They have agreed to, subject to some restrictions, to write a simple Will or a codicil to an existing Will free of charge for a benefactor who has decided to leave a gift in their Will to the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation.

We will introduce you to a range of Solicitors in your area via a letter and you can then make contact directly with the Solicitors and arrange to meet with the Solicitor of your choice at a mutually convenient day and time. Your meeting with the Solicitor, the details of your discussions and your Will are strictly confidential.

Including a gift in your Will is a wonderfully generous way to make a difference to many lives in the future without impacting on your life today.

We extend to you an invitation to advise us when you have made a gift in Will provision to the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation which will enable us to welcome you into our benefactor’s group, the Nightingale Society.

If you would like to take advantage of this free service or if you have any questions or require further information please contact Grant on 02 9382 4085, 0418 405 561 or grant@powhf.org.au

Benefactor Stories 

Rose is a much loved friend of the Foundation. She is also a passionate supporter of the Hospital and has a vision for the future that she has planned for.

When Rose’s husband Des became ill with prostate cancer they came to the Prince of Wales Hospital for their treatment.

“The care was outstanding,” said Rose. “but there came a time when my wonderful Des was no longer with me.” Before that time Des and Rose agreed to leave a legacy to the Foundation.

“Our gift became even more important as after losing Des – my cancer which had been in remission returned”, said Rose. Rose is excited to see the progress of the Nelune Comprehensive Cancer Centre and this year she made the generous gift of a bladder scanner and also a television for the waiting room.

“I know the decisions Des and I made will help people and that is my greatest wish, because where there is hope and goodwill, there is a future.”

“Supporting the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life”

How Your Gift will Help
