Bequest to Carinya

What will my gift achieve?

A gift in your Will can help Carinya Society now and into the future. It can help to ensure those living with disabilities in our community are supported and connected. Your gift could help to ensure that disabled adults have the opportunity to attend TAFE, or the opportunity to learn to swim, but most importantly it will help to ensure that they have the opportunity to become a valued and significant member of their community.

How to leave a Bequest to Carinya Society.

Firstly, thank you!! The possible decision to include Carinya Society in your Will is such an amazing legacy, and we thank you for considering this great gift.

We encourage you to inform your family of your wishes and also to consult appropriate professionals when drawing up your Will.

There are a number of ways to leave a Bequest to Carinya Society. For example, you could leave a percentage of your estate, cash, property, shares or other belongings of value.

Alternatively, if you already have a Will, you may wish to make a codicil to your Will. (A codicil is a document that amends, rather than replaces, a previously executed Will.)

If you are drawing up your Will, we recommend you seek professional advice. Below is some suggested wording which should be included.

I give to Carinya Society, ABN 59 093747 454 in aid of:

A) its general purposes OR

B) the specific purpose of [insert here]

  • The sum of $[XXXXX] OR
  • The residue of my estate OR
  • A [X] % share of the residue of my estate OR
  • All my property known as [PROPERTY FOLIO NUMBER] situated at [ADDRESS OF PROPERTY] OR
  • If any of my nominated beneficiaries predecease me, the Bequest shall not fail but I give the share of my deceased beneficiary to Carinya Society

and I 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.
