Create Your Free Will Online
We have partnered with Gathered Here, Australia’s most-trusted end-of-life services site, to offer our supporters a free online will. In just 10 minutes, you can make important preparations for your family and pledge a meaningful gift to a cause you care about.
How to Leave a Gift in Your Will
There are a number of ways to support Brave through your Will. You can:
- nominate a specified percentage of your estate
- gift a specific dollar amount
- allocate a residue or a portion of the residue
- leave a specific asset such as superannuation, bank accounts or shares.
Speak to your solicitor to make sure that your wishes can be carried out in the way you would like. If you already have a Will and would now like to include a gift to Brave, speak to your solicitor to make a ‘codicil’.
A Bequest Which Changed Brave’s Future
Anne Tomlinson Walsh was one of 12 children, had no children of her own that we know, and had no family or loved ones close to her at the time of her death.
During her life, Anne had a passion for education of young women, particularly those that were vulnerable to higher risks, including teenage pregnancy. In 2011, when Anne was in palliative care, she requested that her lawyer research national charities that assist those facing teenage pregnancy in order to receive their education. Her lawyer came back with some opportunities, including Brave Foundation’s details and a copy of Brave Little Bear, the book by Brave’s Founder Bernadette Black AM.
