BEQUESTS IN YOUR WILL

BEQUESTS IN YOUR WILL

A gift left in your Will is known as a Bequest or Legacy.

Bequest income is one of the most significant sources of funding for charities, including the Asthma Foundation NSW. We rely heavily on donations and bequests from our supporters to continue to fund vital research and provide community support to those living with asthma.

A Will is a legal document that determines how your assets will be distributed after your death. If you do not have a Will you lose the right to choose what happens to your assets.

Preparing your Will is one of the most important and personal choices that you will ever make. By planning your Will, you will be communicating your love for your family, friends and any organisation or cause that means a lot to you. After providing for your family, please consider a gift to Asthma Foundation NSW to ensure that the 2.2 million Australians will continue to breathe freely, well into the future.

We encourage you to discuss your estate plans with your family and would be delighted to include your family in the decision to leave a gift to the Asthma Foundation NSW.

We recommend that you seek professional advice to ensure that your wishes are expressed correctly. We give no preference to any particular companies however we do have a list of reputable agencies if you would like to take advantage of this.

If you do choose to write your own Will, we recommend you contact Aussie Legal and use their comprehensive Write Your Own Legal Will Kit.

We appreciate our valued supporters as we would not be able to continue our important work without you. That is why we are happy to help in any way we can. We have a Wills Checklist available free of charge.
