Bequests

A Gift for the Future

All good men and women must take responsibility to create legacies that will take the next generation to a level we could only imagine.” —Jim Rohn

General Information

Creating a will is a personal and significant document.  It’s about thinking of what mark you would like to leave for future generations.

When pondering how you would like to divide your estate, we encourage you to think about supporting your loved ones first and ensuring that they are provided for.  We do however recognise that many people wish to give to an organisation that is in line with their beliefs and values and that will help others.

Thank you for considering Bayside Community Care in such an important decision.  Your giving ensures that we continue to see people being empowered, connected and appreciated as valuable community members.

At Bayside Community Care we recognise the significant responsibility of stewardship regarding gifts we receive. We commit to working together with people and services to provide care and relief during tough times.

How To Create A Will 

In creating a will there are legal requirements and formalities that must be complied with.  Failure to comply with requirements may render a will invalid.  For this reason, it would be wise to receive legal counsel from a solicitor, State or Public Trustee or Trustee Company to ensure that your will is clearly worded and can be validly executed.

Ensuring all aspects of your assets and all persons for whom you should provide are carefully considered.
