Today, in addition to providing for family and loved ones, many people of all income groups support charities in their Wills. Your gift allows you to continue to support causes you deeply believe in. A bequest to DementiaSA is a lasting memorial to your generosity and would help the organisation grow and continue to provide the services which we may have been able to provide you or your family deal with the challenges of this cruel illness.
How do I make a Bequest to DementiaSA?
If you already have a Will, it is easy to add a section called a codicil, which names DementiaSA as a beneficiary. A codicil is prepared and signed just like a Will and can add a specific bequest, but confirms your existing Will in all other respects. Your gift could be any of the following:
the balance of your estate after caring for family and friends
a specific portion of the balance of your estate
a specific amount of money
an individual item that has cash value, such as shares or jewellery.
Benefits to you as a Donor
A carefully planned bequest allows you to make a substantial charitable gift to a cause that you care about deeply.
Your present income will not decrease, because your gift is made from assets, not current income.
You know that your assets will be distributed according to your wishes.
All bequests left to DementiaSA are exempt from estate duty and donations tax.
