Give a gift with lasting impact

As you passionate about improving the health and wellbeing of our current and former serving military and emergency service personnel and their families? MESHA is undertaking world-leading, life changing research, training and programs in our community, but we need your help to continue this.

Through the generosity of people like you, health and medical research, training as well as our programs will positively impact the lives of so many men and women that serve to protect us.

For many of our supporters, leaving a gift in their Will is an opportunity to give a significant contribution to an organisation they care about and respect and providing a lasting legacy that lives on beyond their lifetime.

Why have a Will?

Having a valid and up-to date Will is important.

It’s your way of ensuring the people you love and the causes that matter most to you are looked after in the way you choose when you are gone.

It also makes it easier on your friends and family as they take care of your estate, as they can be sure they are acting on your wishes which are clearly specified.

Leaving a gift in your Will to charity is one of the most impactful ways you can leave a lasting and meaningful contribution that your loved ones and future generations will be grateful for.

What types of gifts can you leave?

There are several different ways you can leave a lasting gift in your Will.

  • Percentage – allocate a nominated percentage of your estate
  • Residual – a nominated amount or percentage of what remains of your estate after family and friends have been provided for
  • Amount – a nominated amount of specific gift
  • Assets – any items that you own, property, cars, shares, jewellery, paintings etc.

How will your gift be used?

Where your gift will be directed is completely up to you!

  • You may choose to nominate a specific research project
  • Support one of our life-changing programs
  • Leave it with us to direct it to the area of greatest need

Honour a loved one in your Will

Perhaps you would like the gift in your Will to honour a loved one?

A Gift in Honour is a meaningful way to recognise someone special to you and celebrate their life whilst supporting important health and medical research. It’s a lasting gift that honours your loved one while also creating hope for a healthier future.

Give now

Making a gift while you are still alive is another option you may wish to consider. For some people, they choose to do this in honour of a loved one.

By giving your gift to charity in this way you are able to see first-hand the positive impact you are having on the mental health and wellbeing of our military and emergency services personnel and their families.

By making your gift in this way, there may also be a tax benefit for you. It is important to discuss this with your financial advisor or accountant.
