Gifts in Wills

By giving a gift in your will to Connectivity, you can make a real difference to improve the lives of people affected by TBI, their families and carers. Every gift, large or small, helps us work towards achieving a healthier Australia through enhanced knowledge and management of TBI.

Naturally you’ll want to look after your loved ones first. All we ask is that after remembering your family and friends, you consider leaving a gift in your will to Connectivity.

Gifts left to charities in wills come in all different shapes and sizes and giving a gift in your will is not just for wealthy people – it is for anybody thinking about doing something powerful, special and lasting.

The need is great. That’s why we’re asking as many of our supporters as possible to consider including a gift in their will.

What a gift in your will can do

Your gift will help Connectivity:

  • raise awareness of and educate on traumatic brain injury in the community
  • improve outcomes for individuals that experience a traumatic brain injury
  • support people living with traumatic brain injury and their families
  • connect the traumatic brain injury community to help co-design research
  • promote research into traumatic brain injury and translate outcomes.

Your kindness can also support our work to increase understanding of TBI in the wider community and to inform underserved and at-risk groups including CALD, indigenous and disadvantaged communities.

A few words in your will can make a world of difference for generations of people affected by TBI and their families.
