Remember Vinnies in your Will

It is a fact that around 50% of Australians will pass away without a valid Will. Aside from taking care of those family and friends closest to you, a Will gives you the opportunity to decide how you will be remembered after you are gone and can be a true expression of your values.

By leaving a bequest, you can provide a gift to a cause close to your heart that you previously may not have been able to afford. Leaving a bequest to a charitable organisation such as the St Vincent de Paul Society can be a gift that changes lives not only now but for generations to come.

Including a gift in your Will is a wonderful way to make a difference in the future and without impacting on your life today.

Bequest funds are vital in allowing the Society to provide ongoing assistance to people experiencing disadvantage in our community.

  • Specific bequests are gifts of particular articles of property, e.g. a house, shares, furniture.
  • Pecuniary bequests are gifts of a specific sum of money.
  • Contingency bequests are made only when the executor of an estate cannot distribute the estate as planned in the Will.
  • Residuary bequests are made up of the remainder of an estate once pecuniary and specific bequests have been distributed.
  • A popular way of including a charity in a Will is to include a proportion of the residue of an estate.

Why should I have a Legal Will?

A Will prepared by a legal professional means your “estate” is left to those about whom you care.

Is my Will up-to-date?

It is important that your Will is both current and legal.  As your life changes, your Will should change to reflect the new circumstances. It is therefore advisable to review your Will at least every five years.

Do I need a new Will or can I change my existing one?

When your circumstances change, such as including a new family member in your Will, it is usually best to make a new Will. However, to include a bequest to the Society, merely ask your solicitor to add a clause to your existing Will.
