Supporting Brightwater Leaf by Leaf
Secure your leaf on the Leaves of Life wall today
Our new Brightwater campus in Inglewood is not just home to our head office and newest residential aged care facility. It is also set to become a place of celebration and remembrance through a wall art installation that is beginning to take shape.
The Leaves of Life artwork will feature 460 stainless steel leaves that are engraved in honour of a person or an organisation with a connection to Brightwater, or for those that wish to acknowledge the work that we do. The leaves can be purchased by families, individuals and corporate supporters at a cost of $500 per leaf. They will be engraved with a personal message and installed on the wall, with donors invited back to view and, if they wish, have a photograph taken with their leaf. Each leaf comes with a Certificate of Acknowledgement.
Opposite the wall will be a bench where visitors can sit and reflect on leaves and their connection to eight areas of importance to Brightwater. These are brain health, brain injury rehabilitation, independence, ageing well, dementia care, quality of life, Huntington’s Disease and nutrition.
We are proud to offer something different to donors who want an enduring and beautiful reminder of all those who are honoured. As this is also a fundraising project, we wanted it to represent Brightwater’s work in a visual statement. In this design, the interlocking leaves remind us of the neural networks in the brain and provide a connection to Brightwater’s world class research and rehabilitation programs.
The money raised through the Leaves of Life project will help grow the work of Brightwater’s philanthropic programs to help us pursue the dignity and independence for some of the most vulnerable in our community. Funds can be directed to research, aged care, brain rehabilitation or Huntington’s disease. However, if a donor has a specific request for their funds to be channelled into a particular area, Brightwater would be happy to discuss this with the donor.
Every leaf will help us to continue making advancements in research at Brightwater and carry out our mission to pursue the dignity and independence for some of the most vulnerable in our community. To ensure that you are a part of this beautiful display, please make your gift today.
Thank you for allowing hope to flourish.
“Building a strong foundation, growing an emotional connection and providing a permanent display of support for our research and program capabilities, leaf by leaf.”
