Giving the Ultimate Gift

A bequest is a gift that keeps on giving long after you are able to do so personally. It is the ultimate, selfless gift. A gift made in your will to a charitable organisation is called a bequest.

For organisations like Arthritis South Australia, bequests play a vital role in enabling us to take a major step forward in the fight against arthritis.

Bequests are personal matters - and we respect your privacy. Although it is not essential, it would be helpful if we had some knowledge of your plans. Not only will it help us to plan ahead, it will give us the opportunity to thank you personally and discuss how we will put your gift to work. This information will be treated in the strictest confidence.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of leaving a bequest to Arthritis South Australia, or to obtain a copy of our bequest brochure please contact the Bequests Officer on 08 8379 5711.
