Legacy Month

“To leave the world a bit better ........ to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - that is to have succeeded.”

- Ralph Emerson, 1862

Whilst the full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic will take much time to unravel, there is little doubt that the crisis engulfing the globe has prompted many of us to reflect ... to think of those who have gone before us; to think about our own lives, and what is important to us. Clearly for most - family, friends, community and, certainly, health are top of the list.

Our legacy is how we wish to be remembered, the values by which we have tried to live, and an opportunity to show appreciation and a lasting impact on what we see as important. Just as our healthcare heroes care for us, you can also leave a lasting impact and, in giving the gift of good health, will also help save lives.

Please contact the Barwon Health Foundation for a confidential discussion on the impact you can have both during and after life..


If you decide to leave a gift to Barwon Health, you are eligible for a FREE WILL during Legacy Month. We have a number of prominent local lawyers who have offered their services.
