Communication will help to assist your final wishes are carried out. We are grateful when people decide to include a gift in their Will to the Foster Care Association of Victoria, as they are an important source of income and we appreciate every gift.

 

Leaving a gift is an important decision but it doesn't have to be complicated. We have information, support and advice available to make the process as easy as possible. Here are the basics:

 

Step 1: Decide Your Gift

 

Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support the Foster Care Association of Victoria. There are a number of different ways you can remember the Foster Care Association of Victoria in your will, depending on your circumstances.

 

Share of your estate, also known as a residuary gift.

The residue of your estate is what remains of the estate once all your loved ones and charges have been paid. A residuary gift could be a percentage or the whole of the residue of your estate. Just 1, 2, 5% or more of your estate can make a difference.

 

Fixed sum of money, also known as a pecuniary gift.

This is when you leave an exact sum of money to us. It may be of interest to note that the value of this will decrease over time with inflation.

 

A specific gift.

You may wish to leave us a particular item (known as a specific bequest), which can be sold to support our work. It could be property or an item of value such as real estate, art or a piece of jewellery.

 

Step 2: Making a Will

 

Your Will is an important document that must be properly prepared and executed. We recommend using a solicitor to make sure your Will is legal and valid.

 

Step 3: Notify loved ones and the Foster Care Association of Victoria

 

We believe that it is an important step to talk to family and loved ones about your Will. Communication will ensure your final wishes are carried out. Let your family know that an enduring gift to the Foster Care Association of Victoria is important to you and advise any executors and guardians of your wishes.

 

We ask that you consider contacting us to let us know of your intended gift so that we can connect with you and keep you informed about the work we are doing – as much or as little as you want.
