Make a bequest

Leave a gift to help protect the next generation from the harms of genital cutting.

Your first priority when making a will is to provide for your loved ones. However, many people find that after they’ve done this they can still leave something to a cause they hold dear. Few of us like to think about writing a will, but it is important to ensure both that your will provides for those who are important to you, and that your wishes are honoured.

Leaving AIGA a gift in your will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support us and help end harmful genital cutting. It costs nothing during your lifetime but will have a powerful impact in the years to come.

If you would like to write or amend your will to include AIGA, we strongly recommend that you seek independent legal advice. A solicitor will be able to advise you on the best type of bequest to suit your circumstances.

There are three main types of bequests you can leave in your will:

  • Residual: Funds left over after all other provisions have been made
  • Percentage: A percentage of your estate
  • Specific: A fixed sum from your estate

You could also consider leaving an item of value, such as a property or work of art.

Thank you for considering making a bequest to AIGA. If you would like to include AIGA in your will and seek the recommended wording, or a confidential discussion about leaving a bequest, please contact: info@aiga.org.au
