Leave a bequest
Bequests are a major income stream for VisAbility – we depend upon them. These generous donations enable us to provide our core services to clients. Providing for your loved ones is most important, but if you are able to leave a gift to VisAbility, the following information may help you.
A Will is a legal document and should be prepared with the assistance of a trusted legal advisor or trustee. Having a prepared Will allows you to support the people and causes close to your heart, and ensures your wishes are followed in the future.
Should you generously decide to leave a gift to VisAbility, and if you would like to use our correct wording, you can contact us at email@example.com , or use one of the following clauses:
For a Residuary Bequest
I give to VisAbility (Ltd) all (or stated fraction) the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, whether real or personal, for its general purposes. The receipt of the Treasurer or current officer of VisAbility will be sufficient discharge to my Executor/Trustee.
For a Set Monetary Gift
I give to VisAbility (Ltd) the sum of $….. for its general purposes and the receipt of the Treasurer or current officer of VisAbility will be sufficient discharge to my Executor/Trustee.
If you would prefer to leave a bequest to VisAbility to provide people living with disability with life-changing services, please see the specific clauses.
The Arnold Cook Society
By making a bequest to VisAbility, you join the Arnold Cook Society. This is an honorary membership in recognition of your foresight, generosity and commitment to leaving a bequest to VisAbility.
The society honours Dr. Arnold Cook, whose pioneering work in establishing the Guide Dog movement in Western Australia has improved the lives of thousands of people who are blind or vision impaired.
If you would like to discuss any aspect of making a gift to VisAbility, our Bequest Officers are here to help you. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org for information and assistance.
