Bequests

When you leave a charitable bequest, your kindness lives on, improving lives long after you’ve gone. A gift in your will to AMRF is the most wonderful way to show the world what you were passionate about.

By leaving a gift in your will, you can help the Australian Melanoma Research Foundation continue to fund research that will yield direct benefits to Melanoma sufferers and ultimately, the general community.

It is a common misconception that only wealthy people leave gifts in their will. Every gift, no matter how large or small, makes a difference. Thank you for considering leaving this gift.
