Leave a gift in your will

Your gift will ensure current and ex-serving Defence members and families can access more support services, more often including mental health appointments, physical rehabilitation services and social connection. 

Leaving a gift in your will to support Mates4Mates is an important decision and one we understand needs time and consideration. After you have made arrangements to look after your loved ones, we would be honoured if you decided to leave a gift to support us in supporting the veteran community.

How to leave a gift in your will

If you’re considering leaving a gift to Mates4Mates in your will, it’s as simple as adding a clause to your will mentioning your intended gift. We recommend seeking advice from a solicitor when drafting or updating your will to ensure the correct wording is used, which you can find below: 

'I (insert name here) bequeath to Mates4Mates ABN: 54 160 646 999 for its general purposes [choose and insert the appropriate statement from the list below].’ 

  • the whole of my estate 
  • (insert number) percentage of my estate 
  • the residue of my estate 
  • the amount of $ (insert the value of your gift in cash) 
  • my (insert name of asset) 
  • free of all duties, and the receipt of the Secretary or other authorised officer for the time being shall be a complete and sufficient discharge for the Executor(s). 

Once you’ve set up a gift in your will, please reach out to the Mates4Mates fundraising team: fundraising@mates4mates.org so we can share our gratitude.

Donations and gifts are vital in making sure we can continue providing support to the Australian veteran community and we greatly appreciate your choice to support us in our work.
