Leave a Bequest

A legacy or bequest can be the most important gift you ever give. By remembering the Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation in your Will, you are helping to enable a better quality of life for future generations of children born with Sanfilippo Syndrome.

"Two of my beautiful grandchildren have Sanfilippo Syndrome. Each of these children was born perfect and appeared to have the best start to life. But Sanfilippo is a degenerative disorder and health problems are developing month by month.

Of course the Sanfilippo Children's Foundation is included in my Will. I try to get everyone I know to do the same – to bequeath money to the Foundation." – Evelyn

How to leave a gift in your Will

Every child deserves a future and by leaving a gift in your Will, you are giving hope to children with Sanfilippo and their families.  

If you’re considering leaving a gift to the Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation in your Will, we would love to talk to you, discuss some of the options available and hear about the areas of our work you would like to support.

We are grateful when people decide to include a bequest to the Foundation as with no Government funding, bequests are a vital source of income for our potentially life-saving work and we appreciate every gift.

We appreciate family and loved ones should always come first before a charity gift. We also believe it is an important step to talk to family and loved ones about your Will – to ensure your final wishes are carried out.
