While a gift in your Will to Save the Children has a life changing impact for children, it’s surprisingly easy to do.
Once you’ve taken care of your family and loved ones, you have a powerful opportunity to extend your legacy so that your values can live on and have a positive impact on children around the world.
If you do decide to include Save the Children in your Will, there are different types of gifts you can consider:
- A ‘residuary gift’ is a percentage of the residue of your estate once your other wishes have been carried out.
- A ‘specific gift’ is a fixed dollar amount.
- A ‘specific asset’ is a possession or an item (eg. shares).
When you’re ready to leave a gift in your Will to Save the Children, here is our suggested wording:
I give to Save the Children Australia (ABN 99 008 610 035) of 33 Lincoln Square South, Carlton, Victoria, a gift of (insert your choice of either a specific amount or a % figure of your residuary estate) for its general purposes.
