Letting their love live on

12/Sep/2019     FoundationMater GroupResearch

As part of this year’s Include a Charity Week calendar, Mater Foundation held a morning tea at the Easts Leagues Club in Coorparoo, to thank supporters who have left a Gift in their Will to Mater, and to encourage others to consider doing the same. 

Include a Charity Week is the annual collaboration of over 100 charities to promote the difference that charitable gifts in Wills make to enable research that would otherwise not be possible without the support of generous bequest donors. 

Mater Foundation’s Donor and Bequests team supports Mater Research, an internationally-recognised leader in medical research, to allow researchers and clinicians to deliver better outcomes for Mater patients, and the wider community.

At the morning tea, bequest donors heard how their generosity will help to support Mater researchers and event panellists such as Professor Geoff Faulkner, Doctor Teneale Stewart and Doctor Shelley Wilkinson to further their research in the areas of neuroscience, breast cancer, and diabetes.
Guests also heard first-hand from guest speaker, Miriam Moreton, about her very personal reason for leaving a Gift in her Will to Mater; it was the long-lasting impact of the support given to her 10-year old Mater Little Miracle, Stirling

To all of Mater’s supporters, we thank you—because of to your generosity, our clinicians and researchers are able to improve the lives of so many. The amazing achievements of our researchers would simply not be possible without you.
