Give in a Will
Leaving a gift in your Will, also known as a “bequest,” is a way for Australians to leave a legacy of giving to charitable trusts.
Bequests can take various forms, such as the residue of an estate, a fixed sum of money, or a percentage of assets.
It is important to remember that your loved ones should be your first priority when making a Will, and to discuss your wishes and reasons for leaving a gift to United Way Glenelg with them.
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.
