Many people have chosen to generously support the important work of St Luke’s Hospital Foundation through a bequest from their estate. Over the years, these legacies, large and small, have enabled us to undertake significant and longer term projects which benefit current and future generations of St Luke’s patients and residents. Your Will is your opportunity to leave a lasting legacy by making a difference in a charity that resonates with you.
The opening of St Luke’s Clinic in Hemsley House early in 2015 is an example of how a bequest has enabled us to provide ever-growing services in response to community need. Mr Ronald Johnson was a strong supporter of the St Luke’s Hospital Foundation and a resident of Trebartha Apartments, who on his passing left a bequest to the Foundation. His bequest provided the means to undertake much needed renovations of Hemsley House to address the deterioration of the building, and the refurbishment of much of the ground floor and first level, where today we enjoy St Luke’s Clinic and the physiotherapy gym.
By making a bequest in your Will, you can ensure that your gift to St Luke’s Hospital Foundation will help future generations and leave a lasting legacy. As your Will is a legal document, it is important that you include the right wording to ensure your intention is clear.
You have several options when leaving a bequest in your Will. If you wish, you can specify how your bequest will be used, or you can leave it to St Luke’s Hospital Foundation to determine where your bequest is most needed within St Luke’s Care.
