About your gift

We understand that making a Will and decisions about how your wealth is distributed is a very personal one that ensures your wishes are carried out the way you planned them. Not only does a Will provide certainty for you and the loved ones you leave behind through the distribution of your wealth, it also allows you to include gifts to charities or foundations of choice if you want that to be part of your legacy. As this will be one of your most important legal documents, you should seek professional legal advice. This will ensure your wishes are met.

Your gift can take a variety of forms

Pecuniary – a specific gift of cash

Percentage – a percentage of either the residue or the entire estate

Residuary – the remainder of an estate after specific gifts have been disbursed

Specific asset – real estate, shares, bonds or other particular items of value

Our legacy charter

We will always respect your privacy.

We appreciate and recognise that your Will is personal to you.

We understand that loved ones come first and we encourage you to discuss your intention with them before finalising your Will.

We will handle whatever gift you leave us with care and respect.

At any time in the future, you have the absolute right to change your mind about a gift in your Will to Kids First Australia.

We promise that we will use your gift wisely and cost-effective so that it has the greatest impact on children, young people and families with complex issues of sexual abuse, neglect, family violence, homelessness, poverty, mental health, drug, alcohol and the trauma that these have on the lives of children and families.
