Bequests

Bequests

We exist to make a difference in the daily lives of the people we care for. There is one easy way you can touch their lives.

Simply leave a gift – no matter how large or small – to PresCare in your Will.

By including PresCare in your Will, you’ll be helping older Australians to maintain their independence and lifestyle through comprehensive social and interactive programs; and a diverse range of residential and community aged care services.

You will enable us to reward the dedication of our carers and volunteers, with better programs and working conditions. You’ll be helping us do more.

Do you have a Will?

Before you can make a bequest you need to have a Will. Making or updating a Will is essential, whatever your stage in life. Without it, your estate may not be distributed as you wish, and you’ll be allowing others to make those decisions. After taking care of your loved ones in your Will, we hope you’ll consider leaving a gift to PresCare.

There are a number of options available to you when deciding:

Leave a specific amount, asset or holding

You can choose to leave such things as a house, shares or jewellery to PresCare in your Will. Be mindful that inflation or changes to your circumstances may require you to reassess the amount you choose to bequeath at a later time. Leave a percentage of your estate after all debts and expenses have been paid.

Provide a residual bequest

This is a gift of the remainder of your estate after you have taken care of your family, friends and beneficiaries. Because our work is so varied, this option provides us with the greatest flexibility in deciding how best to invest your gift. At the same time, it ensures your loved ones are provided for in the manner you would wish.

You may like to discuss the type of gift you intend to leave, to ensure that we are able to apply it appropriately.

Please call us on (07) 3223 4444 or email fundraising@prescare.org.au.

We recommend that, where appropriate, you also discuss your wish to make a gift to PresCare with your family and loved ones, so that your intentions are clear to all concerned.
