3 easy steps for including Save the Children in your Will

If you’d like your legacy to include meaningful and life-changing support for children, the steps are very simple:

  1. Have a conversation with your loved ones.
  2. Choose the type of gift that you would like to leave for the benefit of children. There are 3 options you can consider:
  • ​A ‘residuary gift’ is the whole or a percentage of the remainder of your estate once your other wishes have been carried out. (These gifts retain their value regardless of inflation).

  • A ‘specific gift’ is a fixed dollar amount.

  • A ‘specific asset’ is a possession or an item (eg. property or shares). 

3.    Now 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 here your choice of either a specific gift amount or a percentage of your residuary estate) for its general purposes.

There is absolutely no requirement to tell us if you choose to include Save the Children in your Will. However, by sharing your intentions, we can make sure we only contact you with information that is helpful and relevant to you. We’d also really appreciate being able to thank you for your life-changing pledge to children of the future.
