By leaving a bequest you will forever become a partner of Community Living Australia, helping us in our life changing work and leaving a legacy of an improved future for people with disability in our community.
After taking care of the important business of ensuring your family and loved ones are well provided for, you may consider leaving a bequest to support our work and people living with disability.
The funds received from bequests and donations allow us to go above and beyond for children and adults living with disability supporting them to achieve their goals and live fulfilling lives in our community.
You can bequeath:
- A percentage of an estate
- A specified sum of money
- A specified asset such as real estate, stocks and shares, insurance policies and personal effects
- The residue of an estate, after specific provisions for other beneficiaries (e.g. family and friends) have been mentioned
- An ongoing, or perpetual legacy from a managed estate. This normally takes the form of a regular distribution of funds, for instance on an annual basis.
Should you decide to leave a bequest to Community Living Australia the following wording can be used to state your wishes:
I give and bequeath [a specific amount of my estate] OR [a percentage of my estate] OR [the rest and residue of my estate] OR [a percentage of the residue of my estate] to Community Living Australia Ltd. trading as Community Living Australia (ABN 24 605 680 635) 2 Sandergrove Rd, Strathalbyn for its general purposes, and declare that the receipt of an executive officer at the time shall be sufficient discharge of my executor’s duty.
We advise you to speak with a solicitor or trustee company so that you can be sure your wishes are accurately represented in your Will.
