Your legacy can help people with ME/CFS

In making your will, you may wish to consider a gift to Emerge Australia, enabling us to help people with ME/CFS and their families at a time when they are hurting and experiencing difficulties.

Sharing what you have with others is one of life's greatest joys. A bequest to Emerge Australia also offers an opportunity to provide a lasting memorial to your generosity well into the future.

When you leave a gift in your will to Emerge Australia

Through a gift in your will, you help to ensure that Emerge Australia's vital work of support and advocacy can continue for future generations.

At the very core of Emerge Australia is the belief that until a cure is found, people affected by ME/CFS can lead better lives by being understood and supported by the medical and wider community.

Our role is to make sure that anyone affected by ME/CFS has the access they need to the support, information and advocacy that empowers them to make their lives more liveable.
