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.
One of the most impactful ways you can support Emerge Australia is by pledging a gift in your will. It won’t cost anything during your lifetime, but helps ensure that Emerge Australia can continue supporting and advocating for current and future generations of people affected by ME/CFS and other post-infection disease.
Sharing what you have with others is one of life’s greatest joys. A gift in your will 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. We’ve partnered with Gathered Here, Australia’s most-trusted end-of-life services site, to offer our supporters a free online will.
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 livable.
Writing a will is an act of love for those around you. It can reduce emotional and financial stress on your loved ones and it can include a meaningful donation to help Emerge Australia. You can write yours for free, today, through Gathered Here.
Writing your will takes just 10 minutes. You can make important preparations for your family and pledge a meaningful gift to a cause you care about.
