Your Bequest to HELP Homeless


Making a Will - your Legacy

Making a Will is an important thing to do. A Will gives you the opportunity to safeguard what is important to you, add to your lasting legacy and how you want your assets to be managed. Including a gift to your favourite charity is one way to continue your support.

Example Bequest Wording

You may find the following words helpful for inclusion in your Will. However, it is important to see your legal advisor before you do so.
For your gift to Backpack Bed for Homeless we recommend the following wording for your legal adviser's consideration:
"I GIVE, FREE OF ALL DUTIES AND TAXES (choose one of the below options)
  • the whole of my estate,    or
  • ______% of my estate,    or
