Making a Donation
You can support NCN Health to provide the best in patient care by making a donation.
NCN Health relies on funding from donations, bequests and fundraising in order to meet the cost of upgrading equipment and infrastructure for quality patient care and service delivery. Through charitable giving, supporters of NCN Health play a role in our efforts to build a larger and stronger Health Service, to meet the needs of our growing rural community.
Many Donors choose to support NCN Health by making cash gifts, which provides an immediate and positive impact. All donations over $2 to NCN Health are tax-deductible and those of $50 or more are recognised individually.
Unrestricted gifts (general donations) are especially valuable, providing flexibility to quickly purchase new equipment to improve the delivery of healthcare, or upgrade medical equipment, which has become obsolete or worn out. Restricted gifts (targeted donations) benefit specific areas of the Health Service of your choosing. Funds may be designated to any of the NCN Health campuses, or areas of healthcare that may be of personal interest to you.
We will be pleased to honour your request and ensure your donation is applied to a particular area or campus of the Health Service. Please contact Executive Assistant at Numurkah on (03) 5862 0513, Executive Manager at Cobram on (03) 5871 0777 or Director Clinical Services at Nathalia on (03) 5869 9444 if you have any further questions.
An alternative to flowers at a funeral of a loved one is a memorial donation, which can be directed to the health service area or campus of your choice, eg Palliative Care. Donations in lieu of flowers can be made at the family’s request and envelopes for this purpose are available from the campuses of NCN Health. Please call us to arrange for these envelopes to be delivered prior to the funeral.
Many people, having made provision for their families, decide to support their favourite charities by leaving a bequest in their Will. Bequests can be designed to reflect your own specific desire to help a community, charity, group or individual beneficiary. As a donor, you can leave a percentage of your estate or a fixed dollar amount as a bequest.
Leaving a bequest to charity means you have the use of your funds or property during your lifetime, and leave part or all of your money or property to a charity after your death. You may choose to leave a particular asset or a specified sum of money to your chosen charity or charities, or you can leave a percentage of your total estate, or a percentage of the residue of your estate, which means that you can ensure family and friends are provided for as well as benefiting the charity of your choice.
You may choose to leave your bequest freely – “no strings attached” – so that the charity can apply the money to the area of most need. (Philanthropy Australia)
You may like to name NCN Health as a residuary beneficiary, leaving the Health Service what remains after specific bequests to loved ones are paid. If you would like further information on how to make a bequest, please contact our Chief Executive Officer on (03) 5862 0513 or (03) 5871 0777 or email [email protected]
