A gift in your Will
Bequests, both large and small, play a vital role in funding research projects into a range of diseases. Many of our friends, relatives or even us will be affected by a disease Garvan researches. Whether it’s cancer, dementia, asthma or other immune disorders, diabetes or osteoporosis, Garvan has a history of major discoveries that have impacted human health. By leaving a bequest to Garvan, you’ll become a Partner for the Future, helping us to continue the journey of medical discovery.
Your gift will serve to honour your memory, carry on the values you hold so precious and give lasting hope for future generations.
How bequests have helped us fight disease
- In 1998, a major bequest enabled Garvan to set up the arthritis and immunology research program. The team there have made many exciting breakthroughs into autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes and asthma, bringing enormous hope to sufferers.
- A bequest does not have to be large to have a big impact. The combination of smaller bequests in our endowment fund recently allowed us to underwrite the salaries of many of our most gifted early to mid-career scientists. This work is leading to important new discoveries that should have far-reaching effects for future generations.
