Leave a Bequest
If you are passionate about empowering young people to realise their potential and want to support the next generation of young West Australians to overcome adversity, then leaving a gift in your will is an amazing way to ensure that we can continue to support those who ask for our help.
We recommend speaking with your solicitor who will be able to guide you through the process of leaving a bequest. There are a number of ways you can specify the amount you wish to give, for example:
- A percentage of your estate value or residue
- The residue of your estate after taking care of all your other beneficiaries (e.g. family and friends)
- Proceeds from the sale of particular items (e.g. real estate, shares, jewellery)
- A specific amount

We recommend that you consider any friends, family and charities that you would like to include in your will and then discuss your wishes with your loved ones. While it is not essential to seek legal advice, we would strongly encourage you to speak with a solicitor or legal representative who will be able to help you write or update your will using the correct wording.
