Bequests

Through leaving a bequest, you can help young people to find the courage to choose a better future. A bequest doesn’t have to be a great deal of money to make it worthwhile. Every gift makes a difference. Your bequest gift is a means of showing how much you care and is a lifelong legacy.

A gift in your Will brings lasting hope to many young people who are homeless in our community, or at-risk of becoming homeless. We believe everyone deserves a home. With your help, we are providing young people with the life skills and support they need to break the cycle of poverty and hopelessness and build a better future.

Your questions answered

Why do I need a Will? 
Making a Will is the only way to ensure that your wishes will be granted after you have gone. We recognise that writing a Will is one of the most personal and significant decisions you will ever make. Leaving clear instructions and sharing your decisions with your loved ones can give you the peace of mind that your final wishes will be understood and respected after you’ve gone.

Can I change my Will? 
You are able to change your Will at any time to reflect your changing priorities, whether that be the purchase or sale of a property, moving house, marriage, the birth of children or grandchildren or loss of a loved one.

What do I need to do? 
You may engage a Solicitor, State or Public Trustee or Trustee Company to write your Will. Seeking professional advice is the best way to make sure the correct wording is used to avoid potential mistakes and misunderstandings regarding your wishes. Open Family Australia can help you to contact a Solicitor who specialises in Wills and Estate planning.
