Bequests


bequestBequests are a powerful and effective way to support Arthritis & Osteoporosis WA with little or no impact on your lifestyle today. A bequest is simple to arrange, allows you to retain your assets throughout your lifetime, whilst also ensuring your loved ones and friends are taken care of when you are no longer here.

Since 1973 Arthritis and Osteoporosis WA has been serving the community, funding research and helping those affected by Arthritis and Osteoporosis. Bequests are a vital source of our income and allow us to not only continue our services but to continue to fund research in the hope that one day something can be done to help those affected by this debilitating disease.
