Leave a Gift to the Centre in Your Will

In leaving a bequest for the Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement, you have the power to help ensure that we can continue to provide important services to the bereaved and those who support them.

While family and friends should of course come first, the addition of a gift in your Will to a cause that you are passionate about is an opportunity to touch many lives beyond your lifetime. Your bequest, big or small, will be put towards the strengthening and extension of services offered by the Centre. You can choose a particular area or program that you would like your gift to support, or we can direct your generosity to where it is needed most. 

Whatever the amount, we are extremely grateful for any gift, as it helps us to continue to ensure that we can provide education and support to the bereaved and those who care for them.


How do I make a bequest?

It is easy to make a bequest in your Will to the Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement. After providing for your family and friends, you may choose to leave a gift of a specified amount of money, specified items of property/shares or a percentage of your estate, depending on your personal preferences. To ensure that your wishes are realised, your gift will need to be formally stated in your Will. It is recommended that you seek independent, professional legal advice to help you in either writing our updating your Will.

An authorised receipt from the Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement will be a sufficient discharge for the executor(s) or trustee.”

The whole (or ...%) of the residue of my estate.
The whole (or ...%) of my estate.
The sum of $(amount).
