Bequests

A gift for future generations

A bequest is a gift that is made through a person’s last will and testament. It can be a gift of cash, a percentage of an estate, property or shares.

Whatever the size or form of your bequest, it will make a real difference to the health and wellbeing of families and everyone in the Sunshine Coast community who benefit from Wishlist's commitment to creating a first-class public health care system locally.

Leaving a gift in your will to Wishlist (the Sunshine Coast Health Foundation) is fairly simple if you follow these steps:

  1. If you haven’t already got a Will, you will need to make one.  No matter how big or small your estate, a Will is important in ensuring that your assets are distributed according to your wishes. It is recommended that you seek legal advice in preparing your Will as it is an important document.
  2. It is important that your Will is worded correctly to ensure it accurately reflects your wishes. For more information on this wording, please contact Wishlist's pro-bono solicitor Peter Boyce of Butler McDermott on 07 5441 2871.
  3. If you have included Wishlist (SCH Foundation) in your Will, or plan to in the future, please let us know so we can keep you up to date with information regarding our many initiatives.
