Gift in your Will

Choosing to leave a gift in your Will ensures that QBI researchers are able to continue their research and extend the frontiers of our understanding of the human brain, and most importantly to potentially save lives. 

Gifts of all sizes make an impact by supporting the research that gives us a better understanding of the inner workings of the healthy brain so that we can better work with and treat brain diseases.

Once you have provided for your loved ones, leaving a gift in your Will is an opportunity to create something that lasts. Many people find that they’re able to give more generously through their Will than they ever could during their lifetime. Even a small percentage of your estate can have a momentous impact through our research.

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.
