The Extraordinary power of giving a Gift in Will

One of the most powerful ways you can support advances in patient care and life-saving research is by leaving a gift in your will to the RBWH Foundation. A gift in your will allows you to not only provide for your loved ones, but to also leave a legacy that will help Australia’s brightest medical minds create a healthier future for generations to come.

When you leave a gift in will for the RBWH Foundation, you are giving the gift of time. Time for researchers to develop life-changing treatments.

Time for doctors to consider new diagnoses and provide the best possible care for their patients. And time for families to continue to enjoy every precious moment with the people they love, hopeful about what the future holds.

Why make a Will?

add remove

Yes. Everyone should have a will, no matter how much you own or how simple you think dividing your estate will be.

Everyone should write a will, even if it is just a simple one. It makes life much easier for your family and friends in case the worst happens.

Having a will isn’t just about giving your money and possessions to the people (or charities) you care most about. It also makes things much easier for your loved ones when you die.

There’s a surprising amount of admin involved when someone dies, which can be stressful and confusing for grieving families. Having an up-to-date will clears some of that confusion.

What happens if you die without a Will?

add remove

If you die without a Will (or “intestate”) not only will your affairs not be looked after exactly the way you want them to be, but it will likely be much more costly for your family to access your assets.

This is why it makes sense to make a Will even if you don’t have much money or significant assets.

Are online Wills legally valid and binding?

add remove
Yes. Provided that you meet the usual requirements for creating a Will (namely, you have testamentary capacity and are of sound mind, are over the age of 18, make the Will voluntarily, and follow the required signing and witnessing formalities), a Will made online will be legally valid and binding.

Who is Gathered Here?

add remove

Gathered Here provides online end-of-life services including wills, funerals, celebrants, headstones and probate across Australia.

How will my gift be used?

add remove

Most of our generous donors choose to include a gift for ‘general purposes’.

The RBWH Foundation provides financial support for RBWH, STARS, Redcliffe Hospital, and Institutes on the Herston Health Precinct to undertake life-saving research and patient care projects that improve patient outcomes.

The work of the RBWH Foundation changes over time as community needs change and this has led to significant breakthroughs in medical knowledge and improvements in patient outcomes.

Therefore the more flexibility we have to direct your gift to the most compelling life-saving and patient care initiatives, the better equipped we are to create a healthier future.

Some people do choose to direct their gift to an area of personal interest, perhaps because of their own experience or in tribute to a loved one. These gifts are more than welcomed, and we would be delighted to honour your wishes.

Is it okay to change my mind?

add remove

Yes. Online wills are much easier to amend compared to solicitor-drafted wills.

Gathered Here offers free updates to online wills for life, so no matter how many times you change your mind, you can adjust your will for free.

What if I already have a Will?
add remove

The Gathered Here Will contains a clause which revokes all prior Wills and testamentary acts.

Accordingly, if you make a valid Will on our platform and properly follow the signing and witnessing instructions, your new Gathered Here Will will revoke and replace your old Will.
