Give in a Will

Leaving a gift in your Will is also known as leaving a ‘bequest.’ A growing number of Australians are seeking to leave a legacy of giving through bequests to charitable trusts. 

Gifts in Wills are property or assets given to an individual or organisation in your Will. Gifts in Wills can come in many different forms including residues of estates, fixed sums of money, or percentages of assets.

We know that your first priority is to look after your loved ones in your Will. We also know it is important for you to talk to them about your wishes and the reason why you might choose to leave a gift to United Way Glenelg.

You can leave a gift specifically for one of the following purposes:

Community Fund: By leaving a gift for the Community Fund, you enable United Way Glenelg to make the most of your contribution by using it towards the projects with the highest priority at the time of the gift.

Dolly Parton Imagination Library: Gifts directed to the Imagination Library will enable United Way Glenelg to give the gift of a book every month a simple first step towards. A child’s future.

Begin your own Fund: Set up a fund in your name and leave an on-going legacy to the community.

Making a will is an important thing to do – it gives you the opportunity to safeguard what is important to you and how you want your assets to be managed.

Including a gift to United Way Glenelg is one way to continue your support. You may find the following words helpful for inclusion in your will. However, it is important to see your legal advisor before you do so.
