A fundamental component of the long-term sustainability of the Woolcock is support through bequests.
Bequests to the Woolcock help solidify the Institute’s financial underpinnings just as the legacy of Professor Ann Woolcock underpins the Woolcock’s research culture and innovation.
We understand that your loved ones will always come first, but a gift of any size to the Woolcock can make a significant and lasting difference. Your support will allow us to find the causes, prevention, diagnosis and better treatment of respiratory and sleep disorders for the many people who suffer from long-term, life threatening and disabling conditions. Your legacy will enable our team of dedicated and hard-working physicians and scientists to make breakthrough discoveries helping people far into the future.
Making a bequest is a simple process, and by including the Woolcock, a not-for-profit medical research organisation, in your Will, you can help to secure the future of our work. If you are in the process of writing or rewriting your Will, you can include a residuary, pecuniary or specific bequest to the Woolcock.
Suggested wording for a bequest to the Woolcock is as follows:
"I xxxxx (insert name) give ______ percent of the residue of my estate ..."
"I xxxxx (insert name) give $______ ..."
"I xxxxx (insert name) give [describe asset accurately] ...""... to the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research (ABN 88 002 198 905) of 431 Glebe Point Road, Glebe, NSW 2037, for purposes of funding world-class research, and the receipt of the Chief Executive, Treasurer, Secretary or the Public Officer for the time being will be an absolute discharge to my executor."
If you already have a Will, you can simply amend it to include a gift to the Woolcock.
For a confidential discussion about leaving a bequest, please email us at email@example.com.
Capital Gifts enhance the Woolcock’s ability to conduct world-class research and provide state-of-the-art research facilities. These gifts enable us to support high-profile research in new areas and facilities to accommodate them.
The Institute has a vision for the future of sleep and breathing research which you may be interested in supporting. To learn more about specific projects please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Find out more about how your donation can contribute to new discoveries that will impact on the lives of people suffering from respiratory and sleep diseases and lung cancer today and in the future.
We are the only sleep centre in Australia with a High Density EEG unique and specialised system. This allows us to monitor the brain at 256 different locations on the head to to find problems related to electrical activity of the brain with the goal of improved sleep, health and wellbeing. A donation of $50 provides one hour of specialised High Density EEG sleep research.
A donation of $500 provides an overnight sleep study for a research participant. A sleep study measures sleep patterns and monitors breathing, heart rate and other body functions to diagnose sleep disorders. Performing sleep studies is a crucial aspect of our research. It allows us to discover more about sleep, sleep disorders and treatments.
Understanding how the lungs respond to certain medications gives us insights into what is going wrong with the lungs in those patients who have a respiratory condition. A donation of $25 enables our researchers to test the way in which the lungs respond to medication for one research volunteer with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
