Bequest: A Gift in Your Will

A bequest is a wonderful way people can provide an enduring gift to support a cause they hold dear. We remind supporters that providing for family and loved ones is the top priority. If you are in a position to consider a bequest, we hope you will consider making a lasting statement of support for Laura Fergusson Trust Incorporated or the Joyce Fisher Endowment Fund Trust.


How a bequest can help

Making a bequest to Laura Fergusson Trust Incorporated (charity number CC29785) will help to ensure we can continue to provide opportunities for people with disabilities to live independent lives.

You can choose to leave the bequest freely so the funds can be spent where they are most needed at the time, or you can specify where you would like the funds to be spent.


How to Make a Bequest

We recommend you consult your legal adviser when making provision for a bequest in a new will or adding a codicil to your existing one. You can choose to gift a percentage of your estate, the ‘rest and residue’ of your estate, or a set amount in your will.

We suggest talking to your family or loved ones, so they are aware of your wishes. There is no obligation to advise us but we would love to hear if you have chosen to support us in your will so we can appropriately thank you in your lifetime.
