What is a bequest?

A bequest is a means to support an organisation by way of charitable giving, enabling individuals to gift funds or property through their Will.

Why leave a bequest?

Bequests are a way to leave one’s mark on the world; to express one’s values by providing enduring support to a worthy cause. They afford anyone, regardless of financial circumstance, the opportunity to give charitably. After taking care of your family and loved ones, a gift in your Will can go on to help others in a way that honours your life and your legacy.

What your gift can do

Gifts in Wills change the lives of our members in many tangible ways. They can also make a positive difference to the lives of Western Australians through our culturally enriching programs and initiatives.

RESIDUARY BEQUEST
A Residuary Bequest is a gift of all or a percentage of what is left in your estate after specific gifts, taxes and debts have been fulfilled. This kind of bequest is not a specific, set amount, so it keeps its value over time; the gift you give today will be worth just as much when the time comes to put it to work.
