A bequest is a gift arranged during a person’s lifetime but which does not pass to the beneficiary until the future. 

While it is common for people to direct the proceeds of their estate in their will to family and friends, there is also the possibility that proceeds of an estate can be directed in full or in part to a charity.

We advise you to contact a solicitor, estate planner or trust company to assist with the drafting of your will. They will be able to provide advice on how best to represent your wishes for leaving gifts to family, friends and charities.

You may wish to advise Linked Community Services that you are leaving a bequest gift or explore how a bequest gift can help Linked Community Services achieve its vision. If you require further information on how to make a bequest please call (02) 6583 8644.

Linked Community Services is a registered charity to the Australian Charities and Not for profits Commission and has charitable fundraising authority under the Charitable Fundraising Act 1991.
