Bequest - Legacy

To carry out its vital work Legacy is reliant on contributions from the community; bequests make up a significant part of these contributions. After carefully considering your family and friends in your Will, making a bequest to Legacy ensures that you will be well remembered and leave a lasting legacy which will continue to make a difference well into the future.

Including a charity like Legacy in your will is one of the most powerful ways to make a difference.

There are a number of different ways you can remember Legacy in your Will.  We encourage you to consider which type of bequest is most appropriate for you.

  • A specific dollar amount
  • A percentage of your total estate
  • The residue of your estate - this means what is left of your estate after your loved ones have been provided for
  • A percentage of the residue of your estate
  • Items of value (such as real estate, shares etc)
  • Life insurance policies and annuities

If you would like more information about making your Will or leaving a bequest to Legacy, or if you need assistance in finding a solicitor in your area, please contact Legacy Club of South Australia and Broken Hill Inc.
