Leaving a Bequest in your Will

If you are considering making a long-lasting contribution to the Hobart Women’s Shelter, we thank you. Your legacy will provide critical support and housing solutions for the women and children of Tasmania in the years to come.

How to Leave a Gift in your Will

1. Get in touch for a confidential discussion.

We would love to hear from you as you consider leaving a gift in your Will. This way, we can discuss your interests and aspirations for your gift.

For a confidential discussion, please contact our CEO, Janet Saunders, at ceo@hobartws.org.au or call 03 6273 8455.

2. Choose the type of gift you would like to leave.

There are many ways you can leave behind a legacy. Some examples of how you can leave a gift in your will include:

  • The residue of your estate, after other bequests and costs
  • A particular asset (life insurance policy, real estate, work of art, etc.)
  • Superannuation, advise your fund of the Hobart Women’s Shelter is a beneficiary
  • A specified sum of money
  • A percentage of your estate

3. Work with a solicitor.

Once you have decided on the type of gift, you can work with your Solicitor or a reputable Will service and provide them with the Hobart Women’s Shelter details.

“I give [(a specific amount or gift) or (a percentage) or (the residue) of my estate] to Hobart Women’s Shelter (ABN 58 125 908 500) to be used for [(the general purposes of the Hobart Women’s Shelter) or (a particular purpose)]. The written receipt of the CEO or Board of the Hobart Women’s Shelter may be accepted by my Executors as a complete and full discharge.”

4. Let us know about your bequest.

We will discuss with you your preferred choice of acknowledging your gift. For example, you may wish to be recognised on our website, or in our annual report, or you can choose to remain anonymous.
