Each of us finds different ways to make our mark on the world. A bequest to Children First Foundation is a gift that will always be remembered and will continue to transform and save children’s lives for years to come. 

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. 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 to include a gift in your Will
Gifts in Wills come in many different shapes and sizes. No matter your personal situation, your gift will make a long-lasting and life-changing difference for children in need.

Here are the simple steps you can take if you make the decision to include a gift to the Children First Foundation in your Will.

Step 1: Get in touch
Simply contact our CEO, Jessica Redwood, for a confidential chat about leaving a gift in your Will to Children First Foundation. You can email Jessica directly on [email protected] or call her on 0493 531 208.

You may wish your gift to be invested in an area of personal importance to you. The work of the Children First Foundation is broad in its support of children from developing countries, from the Retreat and advanced surgical care in Australia to in-country projects. Jessica would love to discuss your areas of interest with you and how you want to help. 

We can also send you a booklet outlining everything you need to know when deciding to leave a gift in your Will to Children First Foundation.

Step 2: Speak to your solicitor
Consult your legal adviser about the most appropriate gift for your circumstances. Ask them about including your chosen gift to the Children First Foundation when writing or updating your Will. 

Step 3: Discuss your decision with your family and loved ones
This will ensure they understand and support your reasons for choosing to help the children through Children First in such a powerful way.
