Gift in Will
By leaving a gift in your will to Warrah, you are having a direct and significant impact on individuals with disability.
Your gift will be your lasting legacy that will make a real difference and enrich the lives of children and adults we support at Warrah. Your generosity will enable us to build and maintain our homes and facilities, and further enhance the services and opportunities we provide.
We understand that you will want to look after your loved ones first and respect that this is an important decision. We are incredibly grateful for your personal gift, regardless of the amount.
Options for Leaving a Gift
If you are creating a Will or updating an existing one, Warrah Society recommends that you seek the advice of a solicitor or legal professional to ensure your Will is valid and your wishes are expressed correctly.
There are a number of gift options you can leave in your Will:
Residual gift – the remainder of your Estate after specific gifts have been disbursed to loved ones and expenses have been settled
A percentage – a flexible way to provide a percentage of the residue or the entire estate
Fixed amount – a specific amount of funds
An asset – this can include shares, real estate, or other items of value.
Suggested Wording for a Gift in Your Will
Once you have decided on the type of gift you would like to leave, your solicitor will need these details in the wording of your Will. Our suggested wording for including a gift to Warrah is outlined below. You can ask your solicitor to insert the appropriate statement.
“I give free of all duties or taxes…
[Please insert here the appropriate statement from the six options below]
- the whole of my estate
- [insert number] percent of my estate
- the residue of my estate
- [insert number] percent of the residue of my estate
- the sum of $ [insert value of your gift]
- [insert number] of my [insert name of shares] or specific property
…to Warrah Society (ABN 95 572 025 945) of 20 Harris Road, Dural NSW 2158 for its general purposes. The official receipt of the organisation shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my executor.”
Warrah will always respect your privacy and understand that your Will is personal to you. Warrah will also manage your gift with integrity, respect and gratitude, ensuring it is used for the greatest good.
Your Will is an important legal document and needs to accurately reflect your final wishes. We recommend you consult with a qualified solicitor or legal representative who is experienced in Wills. To find a local solicitor you can contact the Law Society.
You can also write your own Will through Safewill, Australia’s leading online will-writing platform.
If you already have a Will, it is possible to make changes with your solicitor, in the form of a Codicil, which amends the terms of the Will to reflect your intentions to include a gift to Warrah Society.
If you intend to include Warrah Society in your Will, please let your loved ones and executors know about your intentions, so they are aware of your decision in leaving a gift which will enrich the lives of people with disability far beyond your lifetime.
We would also love to hear from you if you have made a decision to leave a gift in your Will, so we can personally thank you and invite you to be part of the Warrah Bequest Community.
