A few words in your will can provide:
- Every Victorian child with essential material aid

- A more sustainable planet for future generations
How to include a gift in your will
Every gift, large or small, is deeply appreciated and helps us achieve our vision. Gifts left to charities in wills come in all different shapes and sizes and giving a gift in your will is not just for wealthy people – it is for anybody thinking about doing something powerful, special and lasting.
Making or updating a will is simple. The best way to arrange leaving a gift to Geelong Mums is to speak with a solicitor. They can ensure your estate is distributed in a way that meets your wishes. How you choose to leave a bequest depends on your personal preference and circumstances.
Please make sure that they include our correct legal name (St Kilda Mums Inc.) (Trading as Geelong Mums), address 14 Winterton Road, Clayton Vic 3168 and our ABN 11 296 752 873.
There are three ways to include Geelong Mums in your Will:
|You decide to leave what is left in your estate to Geelong Mums after all estate debts or expenses are met and specific gifts are made. It’s the simplest and most effective way to support Geelong Mums.||You leave a percentage of your estate to Geelong Mums. This gives longevity to your Will because your gift won’t be influenced by inflation or changes in the value of your estate.||You can make a specific bequest in your Will by simply stating the dollar amount that you wish to leave to Geelong Mums.|
To make a bequest to Geelong Mums we suggest the following wording for consideration by your legal advisor:
“I give and bequeath (a percentage of my estate) or (specified sum) or (all my rights, title and interest in [description of specific land or property at……]) free of all duties, for the general purposes of St Kilda Mums Inc (trading as Geelong Mums) (ABN 11 296 752 873) of 14 Winterton Road, Clayton Vic 3168. I declare that the receipt of an authorised officer of St Kilda Mums Inc (trading as Geelong Mums) shall be a complete and sufficient discharge for the executor(s).”
We believe it is an important step to talk to family and loved ones about your will. Communication will ensure that decisions that are important to you are understood by family members, executors and guardians.
