Why leave a gift in your Will?

It's a common misconception that only wealthy people leave money to charity in their Will. The reality is that most bequests are made by ordinary, hardworking people who want to make a positive difference to their community after they're gone.

The good news is that including a charity in your Will is just as easy as providing for your loved ones. And it can be as much or as little as you want.
 
In fact if the percentage of Australians making a bequest were to increase by just 14%, an additional $440 million would be created for charities in Australia every year to help them continue their amazing work.

You don't have to be rich or famous to make a difference. You just have to make a simple decision. Whoever you are, whatever your situation, you can help create a better world by including a charity in your Will.
