Donate in your Will

Make a gift to the Cerebral Palsy League

A gift in your Will to the Cerebral Palsy League can ensure a lasting legacy for people with disabilities and their families well into the future.

By leaving a gift in your Will today you can ensure you are changing the lives of people with disabilities tomorrow.

Leave a legacy 

 Bequests and legacies are gifts made through your will or living trust to charity. After providing for your family and friends, why not leave a bequest in your will to the Cerebral Palsy League to ensure people with disabilities continue to receive life-changing support and services, now and in the future. 

For every Queenslander we support, there are five more who urgently need our assistance. 

You don't have to be wealthy to leave a gift in your will. Any bequest, big or small, can help us close that gap and support people with disabilities well into the future.
