For Executors

Garvan Honour Board

Bequests are extremely important to the future of medical research at Garvan. Typically, our bequests are directed to our endowment fund, which means that the gift will provide income in perpetuity, enabling us to plan with security as well as fund new research projects with greater ease and speed.

However, we are extremely conscious of the need to respect the wishes expressed in the terms of the Will.  Therefore, if the Will specifies an area of research to support, this will certainly be upheld.  If you have any questions about the scope of our work, and whether it matches the terms of the Will, please telephone our Bequest Manager, Carol O'Carroll on 02 9295 8117, or email:

Bequests should be directed to the Garvan Research Foundation, 384 Victoria Street, Darlinghurst 2010, or if you prefer, we would be happy to receive direct deposit (Please telephone the Foundation on 02 9295 8110 for the bank account details.)



At the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, we take great delight in honouring bequests received from Estates. Bequests are critical to continue Garvan's mission to find the answers to disease into the future. 

We would like to acknowledge bequests by placing the name of the Estate on the Honour Board (pictured above) situated in the Galleria of our building in Darlinghurst, and extend an invitation to loved ones to visit and view our Honour Board at Garvan at a time that is convenient for them.

However, if the family or loved ones would prefer this gift not to be acknowledged in this way, we would certainly uphold this wish.
