Leave a gift in your Will

What better gift can you give to make a positive difference to the lives of people with an intellectual disability than leaving a bequest to Bayley House?

Your legacy will benefit generations beyond your lifetime and ensure a better quality of life for many people for years to come. 

Make a Difference

You Will is an important expression of your wishes. It enables you to recognise family and friends as well as acknowledge others close to your heart. If you admire the values and work of Bayley House you may wish to give serious thought to including a gift to us in your Will.

By leaving a gift to Bayley House you will:

  • Help people with an intellectual disability achieve their goals and aspirations 
  • Create opportunities for new experiences and become more independence
  • Enable more people to access the services we offer
  • Facilitate skill development and program innovation
  • Increase training to staff and volunteers, improving the quality of the service we deliver
  • Improve facilities and equipment used by people attending Bayley House
  • Raise the level of community awareness, encouraging more people to support us
  • Expand the accommodation options available to people who can no longer live at home

Type of Bequests 

Gifts through your Will can take various forms:

  • The residue of the estate
  • A percentage of your estate
  • A specified amount of money
  • A life insurance or superannuation policy
  • A nominated asset such as shares or real estate, works of art or jewellery
  • An investment in perpetuity

If you are able to help Bayley House through a donation in your Will we recommend you seek professional advice from a solicitor to ensure your bequest is clearly and legally stated. Bequests can be left for general purposes or a specific project.
