Bequest wills

Willing to help

Leaving a bequest to Windana will ensure that when you pass your legacy will live on through the people you assist. Bequests ensure that even in passing you are able to impart a gift that will be immeasurable to people who need help.

Bequests can be left with either ‘no strings attached’ so we can apply the money to the area of most need or you can donate to a specific facet of the Windana program. It is a decision you can make while living to ensure your passions for those in need withstand your passing. Please see below for some suggested text.

Windana relies heavily on donations and people of all ages have the opportunity to list us in their will. This gives you the satisfaction of assisting in a way you may not have been able to afford whilst living. Bequests are easy to arrange and are personally rewarding.

If you have any further questions about bequests or the wording for your bequest please emailus or you can visit http://www.rememberme.com.au/rating-311-14-1.html which has information about leaving bequests to not for profit organisations.
