Remember Weary in your will

After looking after your family and deciding who else you would like to benefit from your will, you may wish to consider leaving a gift – known as a bequest – to the Weary Dunlop Foundation to help improve the health and wellbeing of veterans and their families through the medical research that we support.

Each year, the Foundation awards grants to research projects across Victoria.
