Leaving a gift in your will to a charity is a simple yet powerful way to create lasting change.
That’s the message from Byron Community Centre as it celebrates Charities Week this week.
The Centre says bequests allow it to continue to provide essential community services and programs such as seniors activities, support for vulnerable women and assistance for the homeless.
‘Leaving a positive lasting legacy is important for our family,’ says one local donor.
‘We’ve lived in the Byron hills for over 30 years and care deeply about our community.
‘There’s something special about being able to continue to give back through a bequest. It’s fulfilling to know that my gift will help to transform lives.’
Many people from all walks of life, once they have taken care of their loved ones in their will, are choosing to also leave a gift to charity to make a positive impact.
‘Bequests to the Byron Community Centre allow us to continue to help those who need it most with meals, advocacy and counselling,’ says homelessness projects manager, Jenny Ryan.
‘To anyone thinking about leaving a gift in their will, you will touch the lives and hearts of many.’
