What if you could change the future of health care for generations to come?



With your compassion and generosity, we can support vital health care advancements at St John of God Health Care hospitals that improve the health of Australians, both today and into the future


The gift of good health is something we often take for granted. In the midst of our often fast paced and high pressure society, it is almost certain that each and every individual will experience the need for special support at some stage during their life; be that material, emotional, medical, spiritual, or psychological.

Imagine a world where the very best in personalised, compassionate health care was made possible in our local communities. State-of-the-art surgical robotics available in every hospital, clinical trial discoveries in cancer and other treatments offered closer to home, and leading medical research findings delivered straight from ‘bench to bedside’ – transforming both individual patient experiences and community health outcomes for our families and loved ones.

This is St John of God Foundation’s commitment, to advance discoveries in health care with a focus on human dignity.

By supporting the very best health care services within our communities, we can contribute to the physical, mental and spiritual dimensions of being human and provide the greatest opportunity for people to live life to the full.

St John of God Health Care is dedicated to investing in a better future for individuals and the wider community through innovative personalised patient treatment and leading medical research. We help to create new possibilities for the future and explore pioneering ideas and opportunities for better health care outcomes for all Australians.

St John of God Health Care offers hospitality, hope and healing to all in its care, continuing the mission of our founders – the Sisters of St John of God.

Caregiver with patient

You don't have to be wealthy for your gift to make an enduring difference to the lives of others. You can be sure that whatever the gift you choose to leave, 100% will be directed to improving health care in the communities we serve.

You can leave a gift in your Will in a number of different ways, or you can make a gift in cash or in-kind during your lifetime.

A gift in Will especially can provide a wonderful opportunity to make a lasting contribution that you may not have otherwise been able to consider during your lifetime.

A gift in your Will to St John of God Foundation ensures you will leave a lasting legacy, supporting better health care for generations to come.

Below are some examples of gifts in Wills that can be made:

  • A specific sum of money or an asset (property, painting, shares);
  • Gifting the proceeds of your life insurance policy; or
  • A fixed percentage of your estate before the gifting of proceeds; or
  • Your entire estate, or the residual of your estate.

We encourage you to seek legal advice and to consider your family and loved ones when writing your Will. We are happy to talk with you about a specific form of words however, we cannot give legal advice and a final decision should be made between you and your legal advisor.

Your legacy gift can help us meet the growing health care needs of patients in our communities.
Bianca Pietralla, St John of God Foundation CEO

With your help, we can create transformational health care for generations to come

We are very grateful for any gift that you may choose to make during your lifetime or as a gift in your Will, and we would consider it a privilege to talk with you about the things that are important to you and the impact you wish to make.
