Give a gift with heart!

Include East Timor Hearts Fund in your will

By including a gift to East Timor Hearts Fund in your will you can leave a lasting legacy that changes the life of an individual, a community and a country.

Your gift can help us mend more broken hearts, and support our research, prevention and education projects that aim to tackle the root causes of poor heart health in Timor-Leste.

Need the perfect gift for the person who has everything? Make a tax deductible donation, then print and personalise a gift certificate to give them.


For many East Timor Hearts Fund patients, the trip to Australia for surgery is their first overseas experience. A friendly face at the airport or someone to show them around Melbourne makes their experience less stressful.

Volunteers assist us with activities such as transporting and supporting patients during their stay. If you can speak Tetum we would especially love to hear from you.

Our volunteers also travel with our volunteer medical team to Timor-Leste to assist with our screening clinics, undertaking tasks including administration and interpreting.

If you would like to register interest in volunteering, please contact us at

Check our our latest volunteer vacancies.

Please note that all volunteers require a current police check and, where relevant, a Working With Children Check.

Get organised! 

Your workplace or club can make a big difference through small, fun, fundraising initiatives. Why not organise a casual clothes day at work, with a gold coin donation; or a cupcake or muffin day; or maybe you might like to do a charity fun run and nominate us as the recipient. We are grateful for any assistance no matter how small! If you would like some more ideas about things you can do, please contact us or download our handy guide!
