Bequest

A gift in your will is a very real way to make a difference to the lives of those supported by RSLWA.

Thank you for considering leaving a gift in your Will to support the work of RSLWA.

A bequest is the ultimate gift for the future and the RSLWA is very grateful for gifts both large and small.

Your gift will help current and ex-serving members of the Australian Defence Force, and their families, in times of injury, illness and crisis. Your gift can be used to support our veterans when they need it most, as well as provide programs and facilities for RSLWA members in Sub-Branches around WA.

Every year, hundreds of veterans seek the assistance of RSLWA to help them with pension entitlements, financial assistance, crisis counselling, home and hospital visits and advocacy. These services are supported by donations and gifts in Wills from generous people who care about current and ex-serving members of our armed services. We invite you to help make these services possible.

Gifts that you can leave include:

  • A residuary gift – what is left of your estate once all other gifts and costs have been paid
  • A pecuniary gift – a gift of a specific amount
  • A percentage gift – a specific proportion of your estate
  • A gift of assets – such as shares, property or real estate

We encourage you to seek legal advice and to consider your family and loved ones when writing your Will.

Wording

The following wording can be used as the basis for a gift to the RSLWA in your Will. You will also find suggested wording for specific clauses below along with information for Solicitors and Executors.

“I give to The Returned & Services League of Australia WA Branch Incorporated (insert the details of your gift) and I direct that the receipt of the CEO of The Returned & Services League of Australia WA Branch Incorporated will be sufficient discharge to my Executor/Trustee.”

Please let us know if you have decided to leave a bequest to RSLWA so that we can make sure that we understand your wishes and how we might acknowledge your gift.
