We would be honoured if you were to consider leaving a gift in your will to CatholicCare Sydney, the social services agency of the Archdiocese.
Bequests in support of CatholicCare’s work change lives. A gift, no matter how small, is valued, appreciated and used effectively.
A charitable gift can take a variety of forms including:
Both residuary and percentage gifts are the most effective in helping ensure the provision of our services long into the future as they hold their value over time.
If you do find yourself in a position to leave a gift to CatholicCare, here is some suggested wording:
“I give to The Trustee for CatholicCare Sydney Trust (ABN 38 841 427 747)
• The rest and residue of my Estate, or
• ____ percent of my Estate, or
• ____ percent of the residue of my Estate, or
• The sum of $ ____________, or
• The specific gift of ____________.
Free of all duties and testamentary expenses for its general purposes and I direct that the receipt of that organisation shall be sufficient discharge to my executors for this bequest.
I declare that the receipt of the Chief Executive Officer or designated Officer of CatholicCare shall be sufficient discharge to my Executors and Trustees.”
The full legal description that should always be used to describe the charity in a Will is: The Trustee for CatholicCare Sydney Trust, ABN 38 841 427 747, GPO Box 360 Summer Hill NSW 2049.
General purpose bequests allow CatholicCare the flexibility to direct them to where they are most needed.
