Leaving a gift in your Will to the Burnet Institute is a very special act of generosity and foresight.

Bequests and other gifts in Wills allow Burnet Institute to plan forward with confidence, invest in long-term medical research and public health projects, and seek solutions to the critical health issues of poor and vulnerable communities in Australia and around the world.

We all have the capacity to enhance the life opportunities of others through a gift in our Will. Every bequest, however small or large, is gratefully received, and makes a difference to Burnet Institute’s capacity to meet the health and social justice challenges of the day.

If you share our vision of a future freed from the suffering caused by infectious disease, poverty and social inequity, please join with us and include Burnet Institute in your Will.

Your very special gift will help transform lives – for generations to come.

Other ways you can give

A gift in memory

To make a gift in memory is a beautiful way to remember a loved one, or mark the anniversary of their passing. Or you may like to ask for donations to Burnet Institute in lieu of flowers at the funeral of a loved-one. This provides the opportunity for family, friends and funeral guests to give a meaningful gift that will help fund the future work of Burnet Institute.

Endowment Fund

Did you know that Burnet Institute operates an Endowment Fund? Individuals or families can open and name an account in the Fund and place significant donations into it over extended periods of time.

A minimum donation of $10,000 is required to establish an account. These donations can be invested in perpetuity (or otherwise) with the investment returns being used to fund specific areas of Burnet’s work (at the discretion of the individual/family) or for the benefit of Burnet generally.

Such an account can be set up as a tribute to a specific family member; or perhaps in celebration of a family achievement; etc. This account can accept significant donations from family members across the generations and also receive gifts from the Wills of deceased family members.
