How to leave a gift in your Will

How to leave a gift in your Will

Step 1: Speak to your family and loved ones
This is a personal decision for you to make, but we recommend letting your loved ones know that you are planning to also leave a gift to ChildFund Australia.

Step 2: Decide what kind of gift to leave
– A residual bequest
– A specified amount
– An asset

Step 3: Get the help of a professional
Your Will is an important legal document and a solicitor or public trustee can help you ensure that your paperwork is in order.

Every gift in Will, no matter how big or small, is a step closer to ChildFund’s vision of a world without poverty where all children and young people can say: “I am safe. I am educated. I contribute. I have a future.

Sadly, as a consequence of poverty, too many children around the world are at risk of violence, illness, child labour and hunger. A child that faces these threats is less likely to go to school and get the education that could be the key to their future.

With your help, we can continue to give children the opportunity to learn, to eat nutritious food, to get the health services they need and to be kept safe.

When you choose to leave a gift in your Will to ChildFund Australia you have the opportunity to ensure a future where today’s children grow into strong, educated, empowered and engaged adults – who grow up to become parents and positive role-models for the next generation of children.

You can leave a gift in your Will and give children the support they need.

Because every child needs a childhood.

“Leaving a gift in my Will to ChildFund has been important to me. I know it will be used wisely. ChildFund is aware of where the poverty is and what the difficulties are, and will allocate the money according to the need.”

    Frequently asked questions

    Leaving a gift in your Will to ChildFund Australia is one of the most thoughtful ways to support vulnerable communities into the future. Your gift shows foresight and commitment, but we understand it can be a private matter. If you do let us know about your gift, we can properly prepare to receive it, and plan ahead. We would also love to express our appreciation, keep you up to date with our work and invite you and your family to relevant special events.

    ChildFund Australia is honoured to have the trust and support of people like you. Every gift, no matter how small or large, makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.

    ChildFund Australia is registered as a Deductible gift Recipient. Provided that your gift brings no material or tangible benefits to you under the rules specified by the Australian Taxation Office, monetary or other gifts to ChildFund Australia are generally allowable for deductions for Australian income tax purposes. Donors should, however, seek independent advice from their legal and/or taxation advisor.

    A gift in your Will is generally unassigned as this helps us provide funding for the most pressing needs in the future.

    Greater flexibility increases our capacity to respond to children in crisis and changing needs and priorities. It is often beneficial for a benefactor to have a personal discussion with ChildFund Australia’s Philanthropy & Planned Giving Executive about a bequest intention to ensure that ChildFund Australia can execute the gift according to the benefactor’s wishes.

    If you make a gift provision in your Will to ChildFund Australia, you are giving a designated financial amount or percentage of your estate, in cash, property, securities or other assets, to help fund programs that ensure children in need around the world have a childhood. Leaving a gift to a charity in your Will is often called a bequest.
