How do I leave a gift in my Will?

If you’re considering leaving a gift to UnitingSA in your Will, we would love to hear from you.

A bequest is a deeply personal gift, so it’s important that we understand the areas of our work you’d like to support. We want to put your wishes into real action.

At UnitingSA, together we can.

What type of gift can I give?

  • A share of your estate (residuary gift after your loved ones have been provided for)
  • A fixed sum of money
  • A specific gift (for example, a piece of jewellery, art or property)

Thank you for giving so generously. Your gift will help us provide vital support to enliven communities, enrich lives and improve wellbeing.

 

Suggested wording for leaving a gift to UnitingSA

We believe that it’s important to talk to family and loved ones about your Will. We also recommend that you seek legal advice on how to include a bequest in your Will to ensure your gift is valid and effective.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us on (08) 8440 2200 or email donations@unitingsa.com.au. We would also love to hear from you if you have included us in your Will or considering doing so.
