Leave a Lifesaving Legacy

A gift in your Will to The Cure Starts Now provides important funds to develop research projects that would otherwise not be possible.

Your Will does not need to be complicated – it just needs to reflect your wishes. The most important people you should consider are your loved ones. Once you have provided for them, consider nominating The Cure Starts Now as an additional beneficiary.

Gifts in Wills, both large and small, play a vital role in funding crucial research. The reality is that most gifts in Wills left to The Cure Starts Now are left by thoughtful Australians – people like you that share our vision and want to make a positive difference to the world after they’re gone.

We appreciate that this is a very personal matter and it is something that needs to be discussed with your family and a solicitor. If you do not yet have a Will, Donnis Harris Law is offering free will service to individuals where bequests of $1000 or more are allocated to The Cure Starts Now. Alternatively, you can speak to your own solicitor about drawing one up. While some people draft their own Will using kits online or bought from a newsagency or post office, a solicitor will ensure all requirements are fulfilled in order for your Will to be valid. Your solicitor may advise you that a simple extension to your will (known as a codicil) may be all that is required rather then re-writing your will.

Many people decide to remember someone special to them and thoughtfully pay tribute to a loved one through a final gift in their Will.

Make sure you talk to your family about your intentions. Family comes first and it’s important your loved ones know about your desire to support for The Cure Starts Now so they can fulfil your wishes.

We will also acknowledge your generosity, with your permission, by including an inscription on our Wall of Appreciation at the time your estate is finalised. Any request to remain anonymous will be respected.

The Cure Starts Now is signatory to principles and standards of fundraising practice set out by the Fundraising Institute of Australia. We uphold the highest ethical and professional standards for fundraising and are also governed by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.

We thank you for your generous support!
