Join our Legacy Leaders and leave a gift in your Will

By leaving a gift in your Will to Asthma WA, you will be helping generations to come, ensuring we are able to continue providing free education and support the Western Australians with respiratory illnesses. For that, we cannot thank you enough.

Over 2.7 million Australians live with asthma and many struggle with their breathing every day. You can help make a lasting difference by leaving a gift in your Will to Asthma WA and help future generations in WA breathe better.

A gift in your Will could help fund vital projects including: 

  • Ensuring our Children’s Asthma Hub can continue to provide the life-changing assessment, diagnosis and tailored education for young children with asthma and other respiratory conditions 
  • Providing the correct knowledge and skills to help people breathe easy 
  • The expansion and sustainability of Asthma WA’s free education and training programs 
  • Helping people with COPD live well 

Our Legacy Leaders

Our Legacy Leaders come from all walks of life. Some have been affected directly by asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Others have had to watch and support their loved ones who couldn’t ‘just breathe’. 

All our Legacy Leaders have one thing in common; they want to help West Australians breathe better now, and for generations to come.
