Giving towards a community free of respiratory illness Since 1912, ARC, as a self funded, not for profit, has been funding research and project work in respiratory health in Australia and neighbouring countries. Respiratory disease is one of the largest killers in Australia and tobacco related respiratory illness is the main cause of preventable deaths among indigenous Australians. Help us to work with Indigenous Communities to find solutions. Giving a donation, large or small or leaving a bequest is a simple way for you to contribute to improving people’s quality of life and help build a community free of respiratory illness for everyone.

A proper education is something most Australians take for granted‌but, for many Aboriginal children, this is simply not the case.

If you believe all Australian children have the right to be empowered by a good education and nurtured with strong emotional support please assist the Barinya Program.

A gift can change our lives‌ FACT: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people live less than other Australians – up to 20 years less in some cases. Aboriginal babies die at twice the rate of other Australian babies. And they experience higher rates of preventable illness such as heart disease, kidney disease and diabetes. For almost 30 years the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress has been providing Indigenous Australians with spiritual, social and economic pathways to a quality future. But we cannot do it alone. Become a Hope Ambassador today by making a donation or leaving a bequest. For more information please call the Communications Officer on

The RSPCA relies on the community for 97% of its funding. A large part of the RSPCA’s success depends on the generosity of animal lovers and their bequests. Leaving a bequest to the RSPCA is the ultimate expression of compassion for the well-being of neglected animals. Without your support, the care provided for over 144,000 animals per year – by staff and volunteers across Australia – would not be possible.

You never know who it might help. How your client’s bequest will make a difference to thousands of Australians


Cancer in Australia: our challenge One in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85 – some while children, some while young parents, others when grandparents. Every day, on average, 300 Australians are told they have cancer. Thanks to advances in early detection and treatment, more than half of cancer patients will be successfully treated. But cancer remains the number one cause of premature death in Australia - more than 43,000 people are expected to die from cancer this year. Currently, there are around 300,000 people living with cancer in Australia. As the prospects of surviving cancer increase, the number of people living with cancer – and needing our care and support – will continue to increase.


Your client’s Will can bring hope to future generations After considering family and friends, leaving a gift in a Will to Cancer Council will make a difference to thousands of Australians. A bequest in your client’s Will can help fund a research program, or help us maintain our important advocacy, education and support services. Leaving a bequest to Cancer Council is simple and easy to do. Bequests can also be directed towards a particular area that your client believes is important. As non-government organisations, we rely on community support for our efforts to fight cancer through: n research to discover the causes of cancer and improve treatment n education and awareness campaigns that save lives by preventing cancer and detecting it earlier n services for people with cancer, their families and carers – including support groups, palliative and hospice care, accommodation for cancer patients having treatment, financial assistance and resources n information and support through Cancer Council Helpline, a free* national service (more than 150,000 Australians call for information and support every year) n advice to doctors and other health professionals about prevention and best treatment. *local call cost anywhere in Australia


We

need your support… today and in the future.

Cancer Council Australia’s members are the eight state and territory Cancer Councils. In addition to funding vital research, each has a long history of providing care and support for cancer patients, credible information and effective cancer prevention and education campaigns. As Australia's peak cancer control organisation, Cancer Council is the logical choice for clients wanting to support the fight against cancer.

Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.)

The Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) is a charity based in Western Australia. Our aims are to promote medical research into children’s leukaemia, cancers and allied disorders and to encourage and advance investigation into the cause, prevention and diagnosis and treatment of all these types of illnesses. We rely on the generous support of the public to continue our research and do not receive federal or state funding. All donations are greatly appreciated. Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.) PO Box 1118 West Perth WA 6872 Tel 08 9340 8330 • Fax 08 9380 9012 • email: admin@childcancerresearch.com.au www.childcancerresearch.com.au. Patrons Justin Langer and Danny Green

Some people talk about making a difference...

Others actually do. The Oncology Children’s Foundation is the only charity in Australia fully dedicated to funding research into the “difficult to cure” childhood cancers. The very nature of the cancers we target means cures don’t come easily. Courage, innovation and persistence are required. Our researchers have recently discovered a drug that stops cancer cell growth and movement in neuroblastoma, brain tumours and melanomas. We are giving hope where there was none. And we will continue to explore many more frontiers.

Join us in the pursuit of a cure! To make a donation or bequest call 1800 651 158 or (02) 8394 7777 or go to our website www.ocf.com.au.

CanDo4Kids (Townsend House Inc.), established in 1874, is South Australia’s oldest registered charity and works directly with children and young adults with a disability by focusing on what kids ‘can do’ and helping them to reach their full potential.

Your gift or bequest will make a difference to the lives of Deaf and Blind children!

WHAT IS OSTEOPOROSIS? Osteoporosis is a condition where your bones become fragile and brittle, and fracture more easily than normal bone - even a minor bump or fall can cause a serious fracture. In Australia, half of all women and one third of men over 60 will have a fracture due to osteoporosis. We need your help to fund more research and develop better and more effective treatments. To continue this important work we rely on the generosity and support of individuals who help us by providing a gift in their wills.
