A gift in will

MSWA relies on the generosity of our community who continue to help us provide support to Western Australians living with neurological conditions.

Leaving a gift in your will can make a real difference to the support we can offer through our investment in neurological research, facilities and support services. When someone makes a gift in a will of any size to MSWA they leave a legacy of hope.

At MSWA we are driven by our mission to provide the best possible care to people living with all neurological conditions including MS, stroke, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, acquired brain injury and motor neurone disease, to name a few. You can choose for your gift to be directly attributable to a specific neurological condition or to a particular purpose including neurological research, facilities or services and support.

For more information about leaving a gift in your will, contact us by emailing bequests@mswa.org.au or calling 6454 3164.

I'm considering leaving a gift

If you are considering leaving a gift in your will to MSWA, we encourage you to seek legal advice and to consider discussing it with your family and loved ones. People leave a gift for different reasons and discussing this with loved ones helps them to understand your decision.

Some of the reason can be:

  • We supported you, a friend, or a family member during your journey, through our services and facilities
  • We give future generation hope that one day a cure can be found
  • You wish to honour the memory of a loved one with a neurological condition

You can be very proud of your decision to leave a gift to MSWA, we would be happy to talk to family members to share stories of the great work we do in WA.

Any discussions that we have with you and your decision to make a bequest will be kept confidential unless you say otherwise.
