Making a Will is an important part of planning for the future. After you have provided for loved ones, you may then consider including Seeing Eye Dogs Australia as a beneficiary.
Many generous people support the important work of Seeing Eye Dogs Australia through bequests from their estates. Over the years, these contributions large and small have contributed significantly to our work. By leaving a lasting legacy, your gift enables us to assist people who are blind or have low vision to lead independent and fulfilling lives. It is one way of making a positive difference beyond your lifetime.
If you have already made a Will, you may like to consider asking your solicitor to add a codicil, which will incorporate your gift to Seeing Eye Dogs Australia.
Let us know so we can thank you
We understand that making a Will is a very personal matter. However, if you do intend making Seeing Eye Dogs Australia one of your beneficiaries, or already have done so, it would be a great help if you could let us know.
As well as being of assistance for our future planning, it gives us an opportunity to acknowledge and recognise your generosity and to discuss your wishes. Any information you give us will of course be in the strictest confidence.
For further information on making a bequest, in strict confidence, please phone our Bequests and Community Manager on our toll free number 1300 84 74 66.
