Leaving a gift in your will is a simple process that could make a real difference. If you do not have a will and wish to create one, it is a good idea to obtain legal advice. If you don't have a solicitor you can contact The Public Trustee in your state or territory.

If you already have a will, then all you need to do is add a codicil – a short legal amendment to your existing will.

A simple way to leave a bequest is to include a residuary gift. This means that a percentage or the remainder of your estate can be left to Bloomhill Cancer Care after you have taken care of your family and other beneficiaries.

There is no requirement to inform us of your intention to leave a bequest in your will, however if you have any questions or would like to discuss your intentions please contact Bloomhill on 07 5445 5794.

Because of this we make the following promises to anybody considering leaving a gift in their will regarding how we talk to you, how we treat your gift and how we will recognise you. These are our commitments to you and we take them very seriously.

  • We will always respect your privacy. We recognise and appreciate that your will is completely personal to you.
  • We recognise that, rightly, your friends and family will always come first.
  • You can tell us that you’ve left a gift if you want to, and we’d love to hear – but you don’t need to and we won’t ask
  • If you do choose to tell us, we will give you the choice about how we talk to you in future about our work.
  • We will give you and your family as much choice as we can about how and where your gift will be used to make a difference for Bloomhill clients and their families and carers.
  • We will use your gift carefully and cost effectively so that it has the greatest impact for Bloomhill
  • We will give you the opportunity to be connected with the work we do, that is made possible by gifts like yours.
  • At any time in the future you have the absolute right to change your mind about a gift left in your will to Bloomhill

A gift in your will to Bloomhill will help us continue our work and grow to give more people hope and access to the essential care and support that Bloomhill offers.
