Without our generous supporters, our scientists couldn't continue their research into understanding and treating brain disease. 

A gift in your Will

To leave a gift in your Will signifies a timeless legacy through support of valuable brain research into the future. We are incredibly grateful for your consideration of this meaningful way to help us progress our understanding of the brain to treat brain diseases and disorders. 

Information on leaving a gift in your Will is available here.

If you are considering choosing a gift in your Will, we have provided suggested wording below or alternatively, please feel free to contact QBI Advancement:

“Scientists at QBI aren’t just about finding ways to fix brain disorders at a disease level because you can’t repair a damaged brain unless you know how it works in the first place. This approach really appealed to my sense of logic. I saw QBI as the research institute which could find answers, so I decided that this was something I really wanted to get behind.”  

– Jeff Maclean, QBI Supporter and Chair of the QBI Advisory Board

"I was really excited every time someone donated money. Each dollar is a chance for my friend to find out what condition she has and will hopefully lead to a cure."  

– Belinda Norrie, QBI Community Fundraiser
