Planned Giving: Bequests

Transform people’s lives with a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will is a very personal decision, and perhaps the greatest commitment you can make to help people living with arthritis and related musculoskeletal conditions in NSW.

Your legacy will create opportunities to provide life changing services for people of all ages living with arthritis, the most significant cause of chronic pain and disability in Australia.

Where your gift will assist

  • Camp Footloose and Camp Twinkletoes help reduce the isolation felt by children with juvenile arthritis, while they join in fun activities in a supportive environment.
  • Community Education Sessions on the topics of nutrition, exercise and lifestyle promote the self-management of arthritis.
  • Gentle Exercise Programs, such as warm water exercise classes, help keep people with arthritis active by improving joint function, building core stability and muscle strength and reducing pain.
  • Awareness Programs promote the prevention and early diagnosis of arthritis for better health outcomes.
