Leave a legacy to Sydney that will ‘give-back’ forever.

In your Will you have a rare opportunity to help make a difference for the long term that will improve the lives of people in Sydney.

By making a bequest to Sydney Community Foundation, you can make a difference beyond your lifetime.

Choosing your bequest

It’s important to seek the advice of a qualified solicitor or trustee when making your Will. The Law Institute or Society in your state or territory can refer you to a solicitor.

Here are some ways to make a bequest to Sydney Community Foundation:

  • leave the residue of your estate after specific bequests have been left to family and friends
  • leave a nominated portion or a fixed percentage of your estate. This guards against the effects of inflation over time
  • leave a specific gift, such as property or shares

Remember to review your Will every few years to ensure it still reflects your wishes.
