bequest

Help us find cures for heart disease

Leaving a gift to the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute is a very special way to contribute to medical research.

A gift in your Will – no matter how big or small will have a big impact on those suffering from cardiovascular disease. At the Victor Chang Institute we rapidly translate our discoveries into new diagnostics, preventions and treatments of cardiovascular disease.

Your gift will serve to honour your memory by funding innovative ideas that could lead to world first treatments, speed up lifesaving discoveries or train the next generation of researchers.

Your legacy could help prevent the deaths of millions of men, women and children who continue to die from cardiovascular disease each year.

Thank you.

Different ways you can support our work

Leaving a gift in your Will can be done in a number of ways.  If you are unsure about the process you may like to speak to your solicitor.

  1. The residue of the estate
  2. A percentage of the estate
  3. A specific amount of money
  4. A life insurance or superannuation policy
  5. Assets such as shares, property, art or jewellery
