Bequests/Wills

A bequest is a simple, yet powerful way to donate a gift that will provide ongoing support to a cause that matters to you. With little or no impact on your lifestyle today, you have the opportunity to contribute to the valuable work of Kidney Health Australia, and the kidney community of Australia.

Every gift has an enormous ongoing impact on our ability to plan our programs and support more than 1.7 million Australians affected by kidney disease for the long term.

The impact of a bequest

In 1971, Twanny received a gift he will always be thankful for. “I underwent a kidney transplant just a few weeks after my 18th birthday.” Remarkably, that same donated kidney is still serving Twanny well today.

For Twanny, leaving a gift to Kidney Health Australia in his Will is his way of giving back to the organisation that has done so much for him.

“I once heard someone say you don’t have to be rich to leave a gift in your Will to charity and it stuck.” Twanny decided to remember Kidney Health Australia in his Will and he is excited that it will be used so practically—it’ll be an ongoing investment into research that will advance treatments for future generations diagnosed with kidney disease.

“Transplants were relatively new when I had one. So many people worked to keep me alive. I hope I’ll fund research that keeps people alive in the future.”
