Bequests

By leaving a gift in your Will you are making a powerful commitment to supporting the future of Meals on Wheels Central Coast and the hundreds of local people we support. Just a few words in your Will can make a world of difference to our organisation.

You might choose to leave a percentage of your estate, a specific amount of money, the whole or part of the residue, shares or an ongoing donation through a perpetual trust. Big or small, every bequest helps us continue the work we do.

When writing your Will it is a good idea to seek legal advice to ensure that your Will is written to achieve everything you wish and that it is valid. It’s also important to consider the needs of your family and dependents when making your Will, and inform them if you’ve decided to leave Meals on Wheels Central Coast a gift.

When making your bequest, there are many ways to do it, however the most common is through a specific bequest of a particular amount of money or property. An example of suggested legal wording for a specific gift of money to support Meals on Wheels Central Coast through a specific bequest would be:

“I give the sum of $ _______ or _______%* of my estate, free of all duties, to Meals on Wheels Central Coast Limited.”

We thank you for your support.
