A bequest made to HHRCS through your Will ensures your lifetime support of the community continues through your legacy. It is a simple process that makes a real difference to the services we can provide.
If you don’t have a Will, you will need to get some legal assistance to draft a document. Visit your solicitor, or if you don’t have one the NSW Public Trustee can provide legal advice.
If you have a Will, you’ll need to make an amendment to the document outlining your intentions to support HHRCS. You may choose to leave a set dollar amount, or another alternative is to include a residuary gift, which provides a percentage of your estate to HHRCS after family and other beneficiaries have been looked after.
We recommend you seek legal advice on the exact wording to include in your Will, however as a guide the below paragraph may be a place to start.
"I bequeath to Hunters Hill Ryde Community Services, Inc for general purpose (the residue of my estate), or (a specified sum), or (specified items), or (specified percentage) free of all duties, and the receipt of the Secretary or other authorised officer for the time being shall be a complete and sufficient discharge for the executor(s)."
