Leave a gift in your will

After providing for loved ones, leaving a gift in your will to Heartfelt Homes is a profound way to continue to help fellow Australians. It’s a simple process that will make an incredible and lasting difference.

If you need to make a will, it is best to consult a solicitor who is experienced in wills and estates. If you already have a will, you may be able to include a bequest to Heartfelt Homes by adding a codicil – a short legal amendment to your will.

First, decide the bequest amount. There are three main gift types to consider when deciding to leave a bequest to Heartfelt Homes:

  1. Residuary gift, which means leaving the remainder (or percentage thereof) of your estate to Heartfelt Homes after family, friends and other beneficiaries have adequately been provided for
  2. Fixed sum of money gift, also known as a pecuniary bequest. This gift is in the form of a specified cash amount
  3. Fixed specific gift, which is a bequest in the form of other property such as shares, vehicles, boats or jewellery

Your solicitor or financial adviser can advise you on the best gift for you.

Many of our supporters have been in need of our services themselves, and so you may wish your estate to be invested in an area of personal interest. Please keep in mind that the work of Heartfelt Homes is vast and varied and we respond to many different needs for our services, such as hospital care far from home and natural disaster relief. Therefore, the more flexibility we have to invest your gifts in the best way possible, the better our chances are of helping every person who needs a place to stay in an emergency.

Thank you – your gift is life changing.
