Leave a gift in your Will (Bequests)

Leave a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will to the St Vincent de Paul Society Canberra/Goulburn (Vinnies) is a powerful way to make a difference in improving the lives of future generations.

By leaving a gift for the Society (Vinnies) you can be assured that what is provided will be used to improve the lives of those less fortunate in a practical and compassionate way.

For bequests that are untied (not for a specific purpose), we have a robust decision process that ensures these important funds are invested wisely and strategically to ensure the maximum benefit results from this legacy. These untied bequests also provide for the greatest flexibility to enable us to respond to future challenges and methods of support in the future as they arise.

Alternately you may choose to leave a bequest for a specific purpose or community in which we operate.
