How You Can Help

Make a Bequest

Leaving a gift will help more patients to live and die well in their home.


When the time comes to making your will, you may consider leaving a gift to Ballarat Hospice Care.

By leaving a gift, or bequest, you help us to continue delivering in-home specialist palliative care and support for people facing life-limiting illness.

Only you can decide who will benefit in your will and to whom your estate is bequeathed.


Why would I leave a Bequest to Ballarat Hospice Care?

You may have a family member, friend or colleague who sought end-of-life care from Ballarat Hospice Care and now wish to leave a bequest to help us continue to offer specialist palliative care service to others.

Perhaps you may know about our work and understand that we rely on generous donations and financial contributions to grow our service.

A gift in your will helps people in our community receive in-home specialist palliative care.


Preparing your will

It is essential to seek legal advice when making your will. Should you wish to support Ballarat Hospice Care with a gift in your will, the appropriate wording is as follows:

“I bequeath to Ballarat Hospice Care Inc. 1836 Sturt Street, Alfredton, VIC 3350 free from all duties for its sole use and benefit the sum of $…….. OR ….% of the residue, OR the whole residue of my Estate. The receipt of Ballarat Hospice Care Inc. shall be full and sufficient discharge to my executors for the payment of this bequest.”
