Gifts in Wills

Aspect treats gifts left to us in Wills very carefully – they are invested for the future to be used for major projects that will leave a lasting legacy and endure for years to come.

Gifts in Wills have helped:

  • Build a new Aspect School due to open next year
  • Establish services in new geographic areas
  • Pilot innovative new services that are now changing lives on huge scales

Once you have looked after your loved ones, a gift in your Will, big or small, will really make a lasting difference.

How to include a gift to Aspect in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will to Aspect is a simple process. You do not need to be wealthy and even a small percentage of your estate after you have looked after your loved ones can make a lifetime of difference.

Contact Laura Guille or Jodie Mills from our gift in wills team on 1800 277 328 or by filling out the contact form at the bottom of the page. They would love to hear from you and can ensure you have all the information you need.

There are a number of ways you can leave a gift to Aspect.

Residuary Bequest: This is the most effective way to leave a gift to Aspect. It is a gift of what remains after you have made provisions for your loved ones. A residuary gift will keep up with inflation. It will mean your donation will achieve as much in the future as you would like it to now.

Percentage Gift: Leaving a percentage of your estate allows you to decide what proportion of your total estate you would like to give to Aspect.

Pecuniary or Specific Sum: this is where you nominate an exact monetary amount.

Consult your legal advisor to ensure the option you have chosen best reflects your intentions.

1. If you wish to leave a proportion of your Estate to Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect):

“I direct my Trustee to divide the residue of my Estate, both real and personal, into equal shares and I GIVE shares to Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) ABN 12 000 637 267 (“Aspect”), to be applied for general purposes (OR a specific purpose to be stated). The receipt of the Chief Executive Officer or other proper officer of Aspect will be a complete discharge to my Trustee for the payment of this sum and my Trustee will not be bound to see to the application of this sum.”

OR

2. If you wish to leave a sum of money to Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect):

“I GIVE the sum of $ to Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) ABN 12 000 637 267 (“Aspect”), to be applied for general purposes (OR a specific purpose to be stated). The receipt of the Chief Executive Officer or other proper officer of Aspect will be a complete discharge to my Trustee for the payment of this sum and my Trustee will not be bound to see to the application of this sum."

OR

3. If you wish to leave specific property to Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect):

“I GIVE the following items of my property and personal effects <insert relevant property items or personal effects > to Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) ABN 12 000 637 267 (“Aspect”), to be applied for general purposes (OR a specific purpose to be stated). The receipt of the Chief Executive Officer or other proper officer of Aspect will be a complete discharge to my Trustee for this gift and my Trustee will not be bound to see to the application of this gift.”

Talk to friends and family members about your decision. This will ensure they understand and support your reasons for choosing to help Aspect.

Once you have remembered us in your will, please let us know. Of course we understand some people prefer keep this information confidential but if you feel comfortable we would love the opportunity to thank you for your kindness.
