Do I need a Will?
No matter what stage you are at in life putting a Will in place allows you to ensure that you get to make the important decisions. A Will often reflects who we are and what is important to us – loved ones, family, friends, causes and charities – as well as the values and legacy we wish to leave behind.
Including Children First Foundation in your Will is an important decision, and it’s one that we want to make sure you are 100% happy with. We recommend that you consult a legal professional when you create or update your Will. They will know what questions to ask and may have useful suggestions for you, making the process much easier and ensuring that your Will is legally valid.
How Can I help?
There are several ways you can support Children First Foundation through your Will. You can:
- Include a percentage of the remainder of your estate after you have provided for your friends and family.
- Nominate a percentage of your total estate that you would like us to receive.
- Leave something specific such as an amount of money, real estate, shares etc.
- If you already have a Will then you can speak to your solicitor about including a codicil, to include a gift to Children First Foundation or rewriting the content.
If you decide to leave Children First Foundation a gift in your Will, you are under no obligation let us know in advance. However, we would find it helpful to know your wishes as it gives us the opportunity to personally thank you and ensure we are able to fulfill any particular requests you may have.
If you wish Children First Foundation to receive In Memoriam donations when you pass away, it may be helpful to inform your friends and family, executor or leave instructions.
Its important to remember that Wills are legal documents and you should get proper legal advice to ensure that your wishes are correctly recorded and to avoid any confusion. Here is some suggested text that you could use:
“I give and bequeath to Children First Foundation of 66 Chapman Street, North Melbourne, (list percentage of estate or specific amount/items), free of all death and estate duties. The receipt of the Treasurer of the said Foundation shall be sufficient discharge to my Executors”.
