RSL Care Bequests

Making a bequest can support the needs of future generations of older Australians plan with a gift that keeps giving: a Bequest in your Will to RSL Care.

Planning for someone else’s future by arranging a Bequest to RSL Care through your Will, shows a generosity of spirit and a compassion for the needs of others.

RSL Care has a long legacy of caring service in the community.
We have been evolving our services to support community needs since 1938.

We continue to grow and work with our communities to ensure our services support older Australians, guiding them to make the most out of life.

A Bequest is a gift made in a Will which only comes into effect after your lifetime. You are able to change your Will at any time to reflect your changing priorities, like the purchase or sale of a property, marriage, the birth of children or grandchildren, or the loss of a loved one.

Leaving a gift to RSL Care in your Will helps us to continue to add to the health and wellbeing of older Australians in a real and practical way.

Using funds from a Bequest donation to RSL Care, a shed was erected at our Cazna Gardens community to provide a place for male residents to participate in meaningful activities and give them the opportunity to listen and support each other. The introduction of this shed and the activities that take place has seen a dramatic improvement in the mental health of local male residents.” (Cazna Gardens, Sunnybank Hills)

To enhance the outdoor space at RSL Care’s Moreton Shores village, large shade structures were erected using funds from a Bequest. Residents are now able to enjoy time outdoors with their family and friends or take some quiet time to appreciate the local environment.” (Moreton Shores, Thornlands)

Options for leaving a Bequest

How you choose to leave a Bequest depends on your personal preference or circumstances. As a guide, the most common types of bequests include:
Residuary
The remainder of your estate once family/friends have been provided for, and taxes and charges are settled
Percentage/Fractional
A gift in the form of a specified percentage of your estate
Specific/Pecuniary
A gift in the form of a specified amount of money, item of property or stocks and shares

You may wish to combine two or more of these types of Bequest. Regardless of what you choose, be assured your gift will be greatly appreciated.
