Bequests can be small or large and everything in-between and will make a huge difference to the lives of the people we support.

Most bequests are made by ordinary, hard-working people who want to make a positive difference to their community.

Leaving a gift in your will is a simple process that can assist us to provide ongoing support to people with a disability.

A bequest is a specific gift of assets or belongings through your will. There are four major types of bequests:

  • A percentage bequest: this can be any percentage of your total estate up to 100%. This enables you to share your estate among several people or organisations without specifying property or amounts.
  • A pecuniary bequest: this is a gift of a fixed sum of money to a person or organisation.
  • A residual bequest: with this type of bequest a person or organisation receives the balance of the estate after those specifically named in your will have been provided for.
  • A specific bequest: this type of bequest enables a donor to leave a specific amount of other asset (such as a property) to an organisation.

We recommend that you speak with a solicitor or trustee company to ensure that your wishes are properly expressed using the suggested legal wording for your will, as per below:

“… to be used for the general purposes of benefitting people with disabilities who are supported by SGSCC disAbility under St George & Sutherland Community College Incorporated (ABN:89 753 440 576) and I direct that the receipt of the public officer or other proper person for the time being of this organisation shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my trustee for the payment of such benefit.”
