Leave a gift in your Will

If you’re considering a bequest – or gift in your Will – to Sunnyfield as part of your personal legacy, we can’t thank you enough. Your gift, whether large or small, helps secure the long term future of Sunnyfield, ensuring we will always be here to empower people with disability to achieve their personal goals and aspirations.

A gift in your Will for Sunnyfield will help us to continue brightening the futures for people with disability, providing opportunity to live, learn, work, make friends, have fun and access the supports they need to live a good life of their choosing. Your gift will allow us to provide additional opportunities and support for clients, such as:

  • Building of new shared living homes
  • Home refurbishments and upgrades
  • Vehicles for homes and Community Services Hubs
  • Programs focusing on skill development, creative arts and fitness

A gift in your Will is an extraordinary act of generosity and practical way to make a difference for future generations. Thank you for considering a bequest and for sharing our vision of building a brighter future for people with disability.

If you would like further information, please contact the Sunnyfield Fundraising team.

Types of gifts
If you are planning to remember Sunnyfield in your Will we strongly recommend that you discuss it with your solicitor or legal adviser who can assist you with the preparation of your Will and ensure that your wishes are met.

Whilst there are many ways to leave a gift in your Will, the simplest and most common are

  • Residual gift: This allows you to gift the amount remaining in your estate after loved ones have been taken care of. It removes the need to put a precise value on your gift and is one of the most effective ways to support Sunnyfield.
  • Pecuniary gift: This allows you to leave a fixed amount of money from your estate to Sunnyfield.
  • Percentage gift: This allows you to leave a nominated percentage of your estate to Sunnyfield.
If you already have a Will
Your Will can easily be amended to include a gift to Sunnyfield. Your solicitor or legal adviser can advise you on the best way to do this. It may be as simple as adding a codicil (addendum) to your Will.
Suggested wording
If you would like to leave a gift to Sunnyfield, you will need to ask your solicitor to insert a clause in your Will. You may wish to use the following sample wording:

I give to Sunnyfield (ABN: 72 000 415 127) of 185 Allambie Road, Allambie Heights New South Wales 2100 ……% of my estate OR the rest and residue of my estate OR the sum of $…..(nominated gift) for its general purposes, free of all duties and taxes payable upon or in consequence of my death. If that organisation cannot receive a gift, then that gift shall be made to the charitable organisation in the relevant jurisdiction that my executor considers most closely reflects the objectives of the originally nominated organisation.
