Leave a gift in your Will

Have you considered leaving Our Kids a gift in your Will?

When considering your Will and how you want your estate to be distributed, would you consider including a gift to Our Kids. A gift can be a specific amount or a percentage of your estate, and the funds will be used to help sick kids receive medical care locally.

Your gift could be used for specific equipment in our local Children's Ward, Special Care Nursery, Women's Care, Emergency, Mental Health or Educational Scholarships for our paediatric staff or to help our Community Grants program.

If you're considering leaving a gift in your Will, there are a few options:

A simple standard Will

A more complicated Will

If you have any questions regarding your will and leaving a gift, please consult one of our local Solicitors who are part of the Far North Coast Law Society. 

Feel free to contact one of the team today to discuss your unique options.

If you are visiting a Solicitor, the following can be added to your Will if you have chosen to give a Bequest to Our Kids:

"I bequeath the sum of (a specified sum), or my (specified items) or (% or residue of my estate) to (Our Kids – Northern Rivers Children's Health Fund) of PO BOX 419 Lismore, 2480 ABN: 67 284 856 520 or any successor so registered as a deductible gift recipient for the purposes of assisting in the improvement of health services for Children in the Northern Rivers. The receipt from the office of Our Kids shall be sufficient discharge to my executors or trustee"
