Gifts in Will

A gift in your Will is a caring legacy that lasts for generations. You’re choosing to support a cause you cared about in life with a final act of generosity. It is a beautiful reflection of your lifetime values.

In Mark 14:7, Jesus said that the poor would always be with us. When you leave a gift in your Will, you become an important part of this ‘forever’ story… because you ensure that the work you so generously support today, can run long into the future. Allowing you to continue to bless those who need your care and compassion, even after you have gone home to be with the Lord.

Of course, we understand that family comes first and that (above all) you need to ensure your loved ones are provided. It’s only after you’ve done so, that we ask you to please consider leaving a gift in your Will to Anglicare Sydney.

If you have any questions about leaving a caring legacy for future generations, please get in touch. 

Gifts in Wills are a vitally important to Anglicare Sydney and help us plan for the future. With surging need and our aging population, every gift plays a critical role in continuing this work that supports vulnerable members of your community… from those who struggle to make ends meet to older people who require support and care.

But more than that, when you include a gift in your Will it is an expression of your compassion. A legacy that continues to bear witness to your loved ones, long beyond your lifetime.

You leave a percentage of your estate to Anglicare Sydney. The proportion of your gift will not be affected by inflation or changes in the value of your estate.

Pecuniary gift
