Leave a Gift in your Will

Kindness like yours has been at the very heart of your hospital from day one...

162 Years of Caring and You…

Historical Picture of a Mater Hospital Nurse reading a textbookOn the day the Mater opened its doors in 1861, the death rate in Dublin was the highest in all of Europe. Only the rich had access to healthcare.

But the Mater would be a hospital for the people. And from the very start – despite having so little themselves – the Mater has been powered by the kindness of the people of Ireland… caring people like you.

You carry that same spirit of concern and compassion in your heart today. And that’s why we hope you’ll consider a gift in your Will.

With a gift of any size in your Will, your compassion and empathy can live on between our wards and walls for the next 100 years.
