A valid Will is important to ensure your assets are distributed according to your wishes. After you have provided for your family and friends, a bequest in your Will to Hudson Institute is a profound and meaningful way to leave a lasting legacy to support great medical discoveries that will improve the health of this and future generations.
There are many ways your bequest can help achieve these medical advances.
A named Fellowship is a very special way you or a loved one can be remembered. A Fellowship can be named in tribute to the benefactor, or someone they would like to honour, and directed to a specific area of medical research.
Named PhD scholarships
You can inspire the brightest young researchers to become the scientific leaders of the future by leaving a legacy to support PhD students. A named PhD scholarship can made in honour of the benefactor, or someone they would like to honour, and directed to a nominated area of research.
Support innovative new medical discovery by leaving a bequest to an area of research that most interests you or to where Hudson Institute leadership considers support is most needed.
It’s easy to leave a bequest
You can leave a bequest to Hudson Institute by including it in a new Will or by making a codicil (amendment) to your existing Will.
