Support NHW

Phone: (03) 5722 5297

There are many ways you can support to Northeast Health and your contribution can help make a big difference.

Your support comes in many forms; through donations, fundraising and volunteering. The generosity of many individuals, businesses and community groups ensures that Northeast Health Wangaratta can provide quality health care to our community for years to come.

Memorial Giving

You may choose to remember your loved one with a contribution to Northeast Health Wangaratta. A memorial gift or making a donation instead of sending flowers is a permanent reminder of a much-loved family member or friend.

Families can also choose to set up a ‘crowdraiser’ to personalise the giving and reach more of the people who may want to remember through a contribution.

The bereaved family are notified of your gift according to your wishes, and you will receive a receipt for your contribution.

If you would prefer to have Donation envelopes, these are available by contacting the Giving Team on (03) 5722 5297 or email

Wills and Bequests

Leave a legacy that will make a difference.

We understand that making a Will is a very personal matter and one that requires careful thought and consideration. Once you have adequately cared for your family and loved ones you may wish to consider leaving a gift in your Will to Northeast Health Wangaratta. In doing so, you are leaving a lasting legacy that ensures future generations receive the very best in health care.

To make a contribution to Northeast Health Wangaratta, please read through A gift in your Will brochure and if you wish to proceed include the Will and Bequest form in your Will. When revising or making a Will, we recommend seeking independent professional advice to guide you through the process or visit Victoria Legal Aid, a government site that can provide you with information about making a Will.

If you have any questions or would like to arrange a confidential meeting to discuss your options, please contact the Giving Team on (03) 5722 5297.
