Leaving a Gift In Your Will
Just a few words in your Will can make a world of difference to the work we do at The Salvation Army.
Why leave a bequest to The Salvation Army
Of course, your family and loved ones come first, but if you’re able, please think of us. Your bequest will make a difference.
You might choose to leave a percentage of your estate, a specific amount of money, the whole or part of the residue, shares or an ongoing donation through a perpetual trust. Big or small, every bequest helps us continue the work we do.
The Salvation Army is most grateful for all bequests received – large or small.
Who your gift will help
Including a bequest to The Salvation Army will provide a future for people in real need.
It will help change the lives of individuals from all walks of life including families in crisis, those who have nowhere to call home, youth in need, the elderly who have no one else or women and children who live a life of fear due to domestic violence.
Your generous gift will help change the lives of individuals, which often has a flow on effect to their family, community and beyond.

Making the decision to leave a bequest is a generous one. To show our appreciation, we recognize your support through the Honoured Friends Program. There are no contributions or responsibilities from you to belong to this group.
As a member you’ll be invited to special functions, tours and access to many of the programs we run for the Australian community.
A Salvation Army Representative will be available to you as a point of contact. You have the option to leave your Will and other important documents with The Salvation Army for safe-keeping. Of course you can also request to have your funeral service conducted by a Salvation Army Officer.
