Making a Bequest

For many people, leaving a bequest in their Will is an opportunity to give a significant gift to an organisation they have been committed to throughout their life. As the famous Christian Theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer said: “We should work and pray that we might leave a heritage that will enrich future generations”.

The BaptistCare Bequest Information Pack contains a range of helpful materials about how bequest gifts help to address unmet needs across our community and enrich the lives of future generations. This pack is available free of charge from Phil Wilson, our Bequest Manager, on 0466 775 592.

A gift in your Will assists us to provide help and hope to those served by us including:

  • Women and children escaping domestic violence
  • Homeless people or those at risk of homelessness
  • Frail aged people, people with dementia and their carers
  • People who are unemployed
  • Individuals and families living on low incomes
  • Youth and children

Please let us know if you have already made provision in your Will for the work and ministry of BaptistCare as we would love to express our appreciation.

BaptistCare CEO Ross Low recently said: “Since 1944 through the initiative and vision of a small group of Baptist men and women, BaptistCare has provided ongoing care and this story will continue for many years to come. As supporters choose to leave a gift in their Will, so further chapters of the BaptistCare story will be written.”

The BCS Foundation

The BCS Foundation was established in June 1995 to celebrate and mark the jubilee of the incorporation of BCS.

The BCS Foundation accepts donations, bequests and other benefits. The funds are invested in accordance with the provisions of the Trustee Act of NSW. The ‘Trustees for BCS Foundation’ is a charitable fund and is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) with donations (but not testamentary gifts such as bequests) of $2 and over being tax deductible.

The Trustees comprise three directors of BaptistCare and four independent Trustees. All bequests to the BCS Foundation are invested and income generated by these investments are provided to BaptistCare Programs as the Trustees of the Foundation determine from time to time.
