Leave a Gift in Your Will

Give the gift that keeps on giving

If you suffer from arthritis or osteoporosis you know only too well the misery it causes and the huge and negative impact it can have on someone’s life.  A bequest to Arthritis Queensland truly is the gift that keeps on giving.

Your Bequest will:

  • Give children in pain back their smiles as we develop programs that will save their joints and improve their lives;
  • Help us run courses and seminars that will teach people how to take charge of the pain of arthritis and claim back their lives;
  • Give hope by funding our free Helpline so that when people in despair call, a caring voice will answer;
  • Help fund vital research into a cure

Bequests left to Arthritis Queensland over the years, large and small, have had a tremendous impact, often life-changing, on the lives of others.  Without the generosity of the kind people who leave us Bequests we would struggle to help the people that we do.   Leaving a Bequest is a wonderful way to make a positive difference by continuing to touch the lives of others beyond your own lifetime.

Please let us know

We understand that making a Will is a very personal matter. However, if you do leave a gift to Arthritis Queensland, or have already done so, it would be a great help if you could let us know.

As well as being of assistance for our future planning, it gives us an opportunity to acknowledge and recognise your generosity and to discuss your wishes. Any information you give us will of course be in the strictest confidence.

For further information on making a bequest, in strict confidence, please phone Deborah Melloy on 07 3857 4200 or deborah@arthritis.org.au.

If you have already made a Will, perhaps you could consider asking your solicitor to add a codicil, which will incorporate your gift to Arthritis Queensland.
