Gifts in will

Leave a gift or bequest in your will.

Thank you for considering a gift in your Will. It is an extraordinary act of generosity and a way to make a significant difference beyond your lifetime and to continue supporting Australian veterans.

How to leave a gift in your will

If you are planning to remember A Roof In Return in your Will, we recommend that you discuss it with your solicitor, who can assist with the preparation of your Will and ensure your wishes are met. While there are many ways to leave a gift in your Will, the simplest and most common are:

A residuary gift.

A residue is a gift amounting to whatever remains in your estate after loved ones have been taken care of. It removes the need to put a precise value on your gift.

A pecuniary gift.

We don't just help the individual veteran, but we also support their direct family members to ensure a stable living environment.

A percentage.

A pecuniary gift allows you to leave a fixed amount of money from you restate to A Roof In Return.
