Your Will can help create a better future

By leaving a gift in your Will to the NRCF, you’ll help ensure that the vital support we provide to your community will keep going well beyond your lifetime. By planning a lasting gift today, you’re helping to ensure a better tomorrow for many others.

Bequests to the NRCF can be used in a number of ways:

  • A bequest to our General Giving Fund or any of our other Sub Funds will be held in perpetuity with the gifts of other generous donors. Over time, the income from this fund will be distributed to where the greatest needs in our community lie, through our Community Grants Program.
  • Bequests of $25,000 and over can also be used to establish a named, themed or memorial Sub-fund — for instance ‘The JS Smith Memorial Sub Fund’. You can then encourage family and friends to contribute to your fund, as a way of helping to keep your memory and your passion alive.
How to leave a gift to the NRCF

Everyone should have a Will. If you don’t, we suggest you speak with your solicitor, State or Public Trustee or Trustee Company.

You can choose to include a bequest to the NRCF in a number of ways — either in relation to a specific gift or as a percentage or ‘residue’ of your estate. In addition to financial bequests, the NRCF can also accept gifts of other assets, such as property, and investments such as shares. We suggest you consider carefully how you might remember us in your Will, then discuss it with your family and your solicitor before making your decision. Once you are ready to proceed, we can supply you with the exact wording you will need to ask your solicitor to include NRCF in your Will. It’s a simple process — even if you’re amending an existing Will.
