Helping each other

Gifts in Wills

Have you considered leaving a lasting legacy?

A legacy of making a significant difference in the lives of adults with disabilities through a gift in your Will?

A gift in your Will (often referred to as a bequest) is a simple but powerful way that your support for Carinya can live on and on. Large or small, your gift will be valued greatly and will help us provide our participants with a happy and meaningful life.

Bequest to Carinya

Why should I leave a gift to Carinya Society in my Will?

A gift in your Will can help Carinya Society now and into the future. It will ensure those living with disabilities in our community are supported and connected. Your gift could help to ensure that someone has the opportunity to have a piece of art framed and exhibited or the opportunity to attend TAFE. Most importantly though, it will help to ensure that they have the opportunity to become a valued and significant member of their community.

Currently operating over 70 programs a week, based both in the community and at our centre in Coburg for over 110 regular participants, Carinya utilises a strong base of support and connections to organisations across Melbourne’s Northern Suburbs in order to provide exciting day-to-day experiences for our participants.

Programs include swimming, art, pottery, jewellery making, mosaics, cooking, Riding for the Disabled, work experience, 10 Pin Bowling, gym, sports, music, movie making, performing arts, dance, sensory and many others.

Through a gift in your Will you will help ensure these programs continue so the individuals who are given the support and care they require, live happy and meaningful lives.

Correct wording for a Will

The following wording is very important. Take this to your solicitor or trustee company when you update or write your Will.

“I …………………………….. of ……………………………. give and bequeath absolutely to Carinya Society, ABN 59 093747 454 the sum of $ ……………………………..

(OR)

………………….. percentage of my estate;

………………….. the residue;

and declare that the receipt of the Chairman, President or Treasurer or authorised officer of Carinya Society shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executors for my bequest.
