EVERY YOUNG PERSON DESERVES THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE THE BEST THEY CAN BE
Once you have taken care of those closest to you, including Operation Flinders in your Will is an investment in the future of youth and the quality outcomes consistently achieved by the program. A bequest in your Will is an opportunity for you to make a lasting gift that will significantly impact the lives of young people at risk.
For many people, a bequest may be the largest gift that they make. Regardless of the size or type, a bequest can help reflect your values and beliefs beyond your natural life.
HOW DO I LEAVE A GIFT?
You can leave a gift in a number of ways:
HOW DO I UPDATE MY WILL?
It is recommended that you seek independent legal advice when making or changing your Will to ensure correct legal wording and that your estate is distributed according to your wishes.
If you are creating a new Will, you can include a paragraph in your Will. We have provided below clauses for your consideration:
“I give the (whatever asset or portion of my estate or the total amount of cash) to the work of Operation Flinders Foundation Inc. of Level 1, 12 Angus Avenue, Edwardstown SA 5039".
When a bequest is included (ie. the abovementioned clause is included in your Will), then the following clause should be added into the body of the Will.
"I declare that the receipt of the Treasurer or other authorised officer for the time being of Operation Flinders Foundation Inc. shall be a sufficient discharge to my executor or trustees who shall not be responsible to see the application of the gift.”
