Leave a Bequest

By leaving a gift in your will to Anglicare Central Queensland, you will help young people, struggling families and people isolated from the community by homelessness or unemployment to get their lives back on track.

A gift in your will is a very special way to support Anglicare Central Queensland and does not have to be large for it to be valuable and make a big impact to your local community.

There are several types of bequests. Some are specified amounts of money, items of property or stocks and shares. Other bequests may be a percentage of an estate or the remainder of an estate once family, friends and taxes are taken care of.

We encourage you to seek qualified legal and financial advice when preparing your will, to ensure that the finished document delivers everything you wish for your family and other beneficiaries.

Although Anglicare Central Queensland receives funds through a variety of sources including State and Federal Government programs and one off grants, we rely on additional support from the community to enable us to respond to developing needs in our region.
