A bequest is a gift that makes a real difference to the vulnerable long after your lifetime. Leaving a bequest to CareSouth in your will is an act of community love and kindness that will be remembered for years to come.
Types of bequests
A bequest gift may include the following:
- The residue of your estate – the remainder of your estate after all gifts have been distributed and debts and expenses have been paid
- A percentage – of your entire or residual estate
- An asset – such as shares, a house or other personal property
You can nominate a specific CareSouth project or program area that you want to donate towards. Speak to your solicitor for advice on types of will bequests and will wording.
