Leaving a gift in your will is an amazing way to ensure Youth Futures can continue to support disadvantaged young people in the future. If you’re passionate about helping young people realise their potential you can speak to your solicitor about how to make a bequest.
There are a number of ways you can specify the amount you wish to give, for example:
- A percentage of your estate value or residue
- The residue of your estate after taking care of all your other beneficiaries (e.g. family and friends)
- Proceeds from the sale of particular items (e.g. real estate, shares, jewellery)
- A specific amount
