A bequest is a way for you to leave a lasting legacy that will make a real difference in people’s lives

Leaving a gift in your will helps Lutheran Community Care in its mission to offer the people we support comfort, joy and a meaningful life, regardless of their circumstances.
Your bequest reflects a heartfelt contribution to your fellow community members, including women and children fleeing domestic violence, seniors, people with disabilities and mental health issues, and at-risk young people and families. You can make a general bequest that enables us to direct the funds to the area of most need, or you can specify for how your bequest is to be used by a particular service or project. The choice is yours.

Bequests that have been gratefully received in the past include funding to establish a cinema onsite at Salem aged care service at Toowoomba. This special venue offers residents a place where they can enjoy trips down memory lane and social interaction. Thanks to the bequestor’s generosity, the cinema will entertain and delight Salem’s residents for years to come.

Your gift can take the form of:

  • the residue of your estate
  • a percentage of your estate
  • a specific amount of money
  • a life insurance or superannuation policy
  • assets such as shares, property, works of art, jewellery
  • an investment in perpetuity.
