Leave a Legacy

Most bequests are made by ordinary, hardworking people who want to make a positive difference after they’re gone. Bequeathing is our last chance to interact with the world around us. By including Free To Shine Ltd in your will, you can ensure that your generosity will continue beyond your life, that you leave a legacy.

Free To Shine Ltd pledges to put your gift to the best possible use providing scholarships to young girls at risk of being trafficked into the commercial sex industry and university scholarships for survivors. If after considering your families and loved ones you would like to leave a gift to Free To Shine there are several ways to make contributions through your will.

A Percentage
“I give, devise, and bequeath to Free To Shine Ltd ____ % of my estate to be used for its charitable purposes free of all duties and taxes payable upon or in consequence of my death, and I declare that the receipt of its Chief Executive, Treasurer or other authorised officer shall be sufficient discharge to my executors.”
A Specific Dollar Amount
“I give, devise, and bequeath to Free To Shine Ltd $xxx,xxx to be used for its charitable purposes free of all duties and taxes payable upon or in consequence of my death, and I declare that the receipt of its Chief Executive, Treasurer or other authorised officer shall be sufficient discharge to my executors.
A Residue
A residue is what assets remain after other bequests have been granted.
“All the residue of my estate, including real and personal property, I give, devise, and bequeath to Free To Shine Ltd to be used for its charitable purposes free of all duties and taxes payable upon or in consequence of my death, and I declare that the receipt of its Chief Executive, Treasurer or other authorised officer shall be sufficient discharge to my executors.”

Did you Know?

When asked, 29% of people say they’d be willing to leave a gift in their will once family and friends had been provided for. The trouble is only 7.5% of Australians actually end up doing that. In fact if the percentage of Australians making a bequest were to increase to just 12%, an additional $440 million would be created for charities every year to help them continue their amazing work. You don’t have to be rich or famous to make a difference. You just have to make a simple decision. Whoever you are, whatever your situation, you can help create a better world by including a charity in your will.
