A bequest is a transfer of cash, securities, or other property through a will or a living trust. On average people review their will around five times during their life and the change is often triggered by important life events like the birth of children, health considerations or a death in the family.
We realise planning a bequest is a very personal thing; however we would like you to consider how a bequest to the Buderim Foundation would benefit future Buderim generations.
A bequest to the Buderim Foundation is an equitable way of giving back to Buderim. Your bequest would be pooled with other donations and invested, and the income earned from the invested funds distributed as grants each year to Buderim community organisations. The fact that the Foundation’s administration costs are covered by sponsorship from Buderim Pharmacy, Edenlea on Buderim and Sunshine Toyota means that a bequest to the Foundation is never spent and so it continues to work for Buderim forever.
A bequest to the Buderim Foundation can be made for a specific amount, for a percentage of your estate, or a portion of what is left after you have made specific bequests to your family and others.
To bequeath a gift to the Buderim Foundation from your estate, you must sign a new will or add a codicil to your present will. Your solicitor will be able to assist you in this regard.
