A bequest is a gift that you intend to make after your passing. It can be made to an individual or an organisation such as Surf Life Saving. You need to make this intention clear when preparing or updating your Will.
You can choose to leave a set amount of money; or you can leave a percentage of your estate to Surf Life Saving. Sometimes people choose to leave just the ‘residual’ – this means that after all your other wishes are attended to, whatever is left over will be donated or bequeathed to your charity of choice.
When you decide to make a bequest in your will, you are giving one of the greatest gifts possible in your lifetime. And when you select Surf Life Saving as a beneficiary of your bequest, this one act of generosity will mean saving the lives of so many people who get into trouble in the surf at the beach for years and generations to come.
Surf Life Saving has a long history of its volunteer lifesavers teaching new generations of Australian kids to be safe at the beach. Our surf lifesavers have a deep respect for the surf and know its power. Surf Life Saving exists to keep your friends and family safe when they’re at the beach. This is what makes Surf Life Saving the best charity to leave a bequest to.
Leaving a Gift in your Will to Surf Life Saving you are creating your very own life saving legacy which may potentially save lives long after you have gone. Your gift can either go directly to your favourite Surf Club to equip and train future lifesavers or you may have a more focussed idea like assisting with Nipper training and associated programs or a multitude of other needs. We can always assist you should you have specific ideas or questions. Including Surf Life Saving in your Will is an incredible testament to your vision for the future and your deep caring for your community. Thank you.
This has been specifically set up for clubbies who are currently active or retired and wish to ensure their club is a future beneficiary in their Will. For further information on this program please get in touch or watch the short video of clubbies talking about the program below. You can of course also speak to your Club President or Club Administrator.
