Gifts in Wills

Leaving a gift in your will to the St Vincent de Paul Society Tasmania is a practical and powerful way to make a difference in improving the lives of future generations.

There are a number of different ways in which you could include a bequest to the Society in your Will. First and foremost, it is important to ensure that your family are provided for. Once this provision has been made it is possible to include a bequest to the St Vincent de Paul Society in a number of different ways.

  • Specific bequests are gifts of particular articles of property, for instance a house, shares, furniture etc.
  • Pecuniary bequests are gifts of a specific sum of money.
  • Contingency bequests are made only when the executor of an estate cannot distribute the estate as planned in the Will.
  • Residuary bequests are made up of the remainder of an estate once all other bequests have been distributed.

A popular way of including a charity in a Will is to include a proportion of the residue of an estate. We have an informative, free publication, which can be downloaded at the link below or we would be delighted to post to you. It contains all the information you need to make your decision easier and help you with the process.

Honorary Solicitor Service

We have introduced an ‘Honorary Solicitor’ Scheme whereby we have partnered with a number of Tasmanian Solicitors who have agreed to draft a free ‘simple will’ where a legacy is being left to the St Vincent de Paul Society in Tasmania.
