Include a Charity Week 2014
Help the Work Live On
Live On is the message this Include a Charity Week (8-14 September 2014) with Australians being encouraged to make a positive difference after they are gone.
140 Australian charities have joined together to promote Include a Charity Week – a national awareness campaign that encourages people to consider including a charity when preparing, or next updating, their Will. Whilst 70% of Australians support a charity in their lifetime, only 19% of people currently consider making a charitable bequest. And just 12.5% of people actually do.
Leaving a gift to your favourite charity can be done through consultation with your solicitor or financial advisor, or by visiting www.includeacharity.com.au. The Include a Charity website outlines the steps to take and the types of bequests you can make – from a specified gift of money or shares, through to a percentage or residuary portion of your estate, after first making provision for your loved ones. Please take the time to have a look around this site.
If you are a member charity, or would like to be involved with Include a Charity please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to see how you can get involved in IaC Week 2015.
