A gift to support excellence in Australian medical research

A gift to support excellence in Australian medical research

When Michael and Helen Taafe were planning their estate, they knew the type of beneficiaries they wanted to support. The recipients should be in the medical field, have a holistic vision, and make a significant contribution to Australian and global society.

“We did our research, but it was an easy choice” says Helen Taafe. “The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute has a vision that shines, and a mission that encapsulates everything we were looking for.”

Inspired by dedication and success

“On paper the Institute is impressive, but after meeting the director, Doug Hilton, we realised why the Institute stands out above the rest,” says Michael Taafe.

“His dedication and outstanding leadership qualities were inspiring. The organisation’s work ethic is second to none. The executive team, scientists and staff endeavour with much success to uncover the secrets of medicine and science, while working together harmoniously.”

A legacy for future Australian medical research outcomes

By leaving a gift in their Wills to the Institute, Michael and Helen Taafe are contributing to the future success of Australian medical research.

“It’s an organisation that makes you proud to be Australian. We wanted to make a difference and that’s why we selected the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute.”
