SECURING THE FUTURE OF AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE

Your Legacy – Their Future

Leaving a charitable Bequest to Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation in your Will is a very special way to help Australia’s native wildlife.
Whether your Bequest is large or small, it will help us fund the veterinary treatment of sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife for release back into the wild.
Your legacy will be a lasting one, as these animals are released back into the wild to breed and produce future generations of wildlife.

All Bequests the Foundation receives over the sum of $1,000 will be provided with a complimentary memorial Walkways for Wildlife engraved paver,
which will be permanently installed in the pathways leading to the Wildlife Hospital as a lasting record of your generous contribution.

A gift in your Will can help us

• Continue to provide veterinary treatment to sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife
• Find a cure to devastating wildlife diseases such as those affecting koalas
• Provide education to school children and the public about conservation and caring for wildlife.

You have a choice of where your Bequest is best utilised
1. Leaving a Bequest to our Perpetual Fund – The Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation Capital Fund. Once released, your Bequest will be invested in the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation Capital Fund and held in perpetuity.
The income earned from donations and Bequests invested will go directly to the critical veterinary treatment of sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.
In effect your Bequest will last forever, continuing to save lives well into the future from the investment earnings.
2. Leaving a Bequest to General purposes – Once released your Bequest will be used for the immediate critical veterinary treatment of sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.
