The impact of bequests

The Eye and Ear has benefitted significantly from bequests over our 160+ year history, with generous legacy gifts enabling the purchase of critical medical equipment, the redevelopment of the hospital, investment into ground-breaking research to prevent vision and hearing loss, and quality care and treatment for our patients.

Including the Eye and Ear in your Will

If you’d like to include a gift in your Will to the hospital, here is some suggested wording to include in your Will:

I bequeath [ ____ percent of my residual estate / $_____ (choose one alternative)] to The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital of 32 Gisborne Street, East Melbourne, Victoria 3002 (ABN: 81 863 814 677) to be used for the general purposes of the Hospital and I declare that the receipt of the Chief Executive Officer or other authorised officer will be sufficient discharge to the executors of my estate.
