By including MacKillop Family Services in your Will, you leave a gift for tomorrow’s families.
You will help keep future generations of Australian children safe. You will help young people who have experienced trauma to recover and thrive. And you will help vulnerable families achieve stability. Together we can change the future.
We are not wealthy, but we have always had enough to get by and had a very happy family life. Our home has been a secure place and our children have always been loved. We are blessed and I want to give something back to those who haven’t been as lucky as us.
The Power of Gifts in Wills
A Will allows you to protect your family and loved ones and to make a difference to the lives of others, long after you are gone. Everyone should have an up-to-date Will.
If you die without making a Will, and do not leave any eligible relatives, the government may receive the proceeds of your estate. So it’s important that your Will clearly states how you want your estate distributed.
We recommend that you seek advice from a qualified solicitor or legal practitioner to ensure your wishes are clearly stated, and legally binding. We also suggest that you consider your family and loved ones first, and discuss your intentions with them to ensure that your wishes will be honoured.
A gift in your Will to MacKillop Family Services will be invested immediately and live on in perpetuity, with the income generated funding our work. So you can be assured that your generosity and compassion will continue to foster hope and promote justice for future generations of vulnerable children, young people and families.
To maximise the impact of your gift, leaving the residue or a percentage of your estate means your gift will retain its value over time, regardless of inflation, while enabling you to put the needs of your family first. You can read more about the different types of bequests below.
