Thank you for having the foresight to consider including a bequest to the Perkins in your Will and sharing our mission for a world without devastating disease.
THE FOREVER GIFT
A "SILVER LINING" GIFT IN YOUR WILL
The Perkins needs visionary supporters like you who understand that by leaving a gift in your Will, no matter the size, you’re ensuring the continuance of research that could one day make life-threatening diseases treatable and liveable for you and your loved ones.
As a charity, the Perkins relies entirely on donations and successful grants. Everything we do is made possible by people like you, and is to provide a better future for families like yours.
Your gift will stay in WA and provide funding security to Perkins researchers looking into diseases that too often take away the people we love – cancer, heart disease, diabetes and rare genetic diseases.
