Donations can be made in two ways, being either a Tax Deductible gift in your life time, or as a bequest to be paid from your estate. Either way you will have the comfort of knowing that your gift is being managed by a local Board of Trustees for the long term benefit of our hospital.
Making a Will Bequest
When you are considering your will, which is a task that we all have to deal with at some point in time, your solicitor will assist you to make a provision.
This could be as simple as saying “I wish to give a bequest to the Bordertown Health and Community Foundation (ABN 16 757 374 953) the sum of $………, for the long term benefit of the Bordertown Memorial Hospital Inc.”
After you have made provision for your family and loved ones, then you may wish to make a provision to a gift to charity which could be a gift that keeps on giving well into the future.
This may be –
– You can leave a share of your estate.
– You can leave a fixed sum of money.
– You can leave a specific item or property.
Your solicitor will assist you to make the provision that you want. It is a very simple matter to deal with, and if any further information is required, you can always contact one of the local Trustees.
