leave a bequest to bravehearts
Leave a lasting legacy by leaving a bequest in your will to Bravehearts. Your legacy will help us to provide vital counselling, education and advocacy services to children in need.
If you have already made a will, you can make a simple addition called a codicil, without having to rewrite your Will. A codicil is an instruction or amendment and must be signed and witnessed by two people.
If you haven’t made a Will yet, there are several ways to leave a gift including a residuary of your estate, or leaving a share of your estate by specifying a percentage or even a pecuniary tribute (choosing a gift to a specified amount).
