Bruce’s gift

Bruce’s daughter Lynne has been attending one of Sunnyfield’s Community Services Hubs for several years. He has always been impressed with the quality of services Sunnyfield has provided and the dedication of staff to improving the lives of people with disability. “I hope to show others who may be in a similar situation to think of this as a possible solution.” With no other family members, Bruce was concerned about the future welfare of his daughter. He decided to make a gift to Sunnyfield to enable the construction of a purpose-built home, where his daughter can be comfortably accommodated and where other ladies with similar needs can also live. Sunnyfield will provide round the clock staffing to support this Shared Living home arrangement.

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.”
