Gifts in Wills
First of all, thank you for considering Little Dreamers!
By leaving a gift to Little Dreamers, you can help us continue to support, amplify and improve the quality of life of Young Carers around Australia.
Gifts in wills come in all shapes and sizes. For example, they could be a sum of money, or they could be an asset or a percentage or residue of an estate.
Your gift might also have a specific purpose (i.e. it could help fund one of our programs, go towards establishing a support centre for Young Carers…the sky is the limit!). Our team is more than happy to help guide you through this decision.
Big or small, every gift is special and can change a young person’s life. After remembering your family and friends, we would love you to consider Little Dreamers as your choice of recipient.
How to leave a gift in your will
You can include a gift or bequest to Little Dreamers when you write your will.
If you already have a will, you can update it by adding a codicil (a legal provision) to include the bequest. For assistance on writing or updating your will, we recommend that you consult a solicitor, a trustee or accredited wills and estate specialist.
You can specify the amount you wish to include in the bequest, or an asset or property, or a percentage of your estate or residue of the estate. The residue of your estate is what is left over after your loved ones have been provided for and expenses have been paid.
Here is an example of the wording you can use:
“I bequeath Little Dreamers Australia Co Limited ABN 98 343 827 904 of 8-12 Alma Road St Kilda VIC 3182 or its successor entity (Little Dreamers), the sum of $______________ / or gift of ______________ / or ____ percentage of my estate or residual estate, free from duties, to be applied for the purposes of ______________ or purposes that Little Dreamers may determine.
l direct that the receipt in writing of this bequest by Little Dreamers shall be valid discharge to my executors for this bequest in my will.”
