Leave A Legacy

You can leave a legacy in several ways, including: 

  • Making a bequest in your will for a specific sum or a portion of your estate;

  • Considering a bequest of assets, for example stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or real estate

The bequest may be small or substantial but it makes sense to ensure that some of our accumulated wealth goes to helping others less fortunate when we no longer need it ourselves.

Your bequest would allow young people to continue to have the opportunity to participate in the StreetWork KickStart Mentoring program well into the future.

You Need A Will

Your age doesn’t matter. Even a young family needs provisions for guardianship for young children in case of a tragedy. Having a will gives you and your family peace of mind. 

You can alter your will at any time. As your circumstances change, you can choose to revise an existing will to add new gifts or change how you choose to distribute your estate.

You should, of course, review your will every few years so that it reflects your current wishes. 

To ensure that your wishes are fulfilled you need to ensure that the wording and organisation details are correct. The following details will assist you to leave a legacy gift to StreetWork.
