The difference a gift in Will to Aspect can make

By leaving a gift in your Will, you have the opportunity to contribute to a project that will help change the world for children and adults on the autism spectrum.

In the past, gifts from Wills have allowed us to establish new services, pilot ground-breaking approaches, and reach new geographic areas. Gifts from Wills have made it possible for us to build a brand new Aspect school.

How to leave Aspect a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will is a meaningful promise and significant commitment.

Here are some of the questions we are frequently asked.

A Will is a legally binding document that lets you say what you want to happen to your estate after you are gone. Everyone over the age of 18 should have a valid Will. If you do not have a Will, you could lose the opportunity to give the people you care about the things you value most.

When creating or updating your Will, provide for your family and friends first and then reflect on whether you can also include a gift to Aspect.

Leaving a gift in your Will costs nothing in your lifetime but your lasting promise will have a profound impact on the lives of Australians on the autism spectrum. Gifts from kind people like you are so important because they provide stability for Aspect and allow for long-term planning of major projects like new schools.

There are three main ways to leave a gift in Will to Aspect:

1. Residuary: You can leave a gift of the remainder or percentage of the remainder of your estate, once specific gifts and expenses have been taken care of.

2. Specific: You can leave a specific gift by simply stating the dollar amount in your Will that you wish to leave to Aspect.

3. An Asset: You may wish to leave a gift of a specific asset. For example, property, shares, art, etc.

We are grateful for every gift in Will, no matter the size. Every gift, big or small, helps to improve the lives and opportunities for people on the autism spectrum.
