September 16 – 22 marks ‘Include a Charity Week’, a week to raise awareness about leaving a bequest to a not-for profit organisation. Include a Charity is a network of over 140 charities collaborating together to raise awareness amongst Australians about how easy it is to leave a charitable gift in their will.
Redkite (www.redkite.org.au) recently brought some interesting figures to our attention in relation to Australia’s habits of donating. It has been revealed that whilst 70% of Australian’s donate to charities in their lifetime, only 7.5% leave a bequest to a charity in their will.
If you are considering making a charitable bequest and would like to get some advice on how to effectively implement such a bequest in your will, please contact us on (07) 5576 9999 to make an appointment.
