Become a Life Guardian
Do you want to see improved treatments or a cure for a disease or illness close to your heart? Do you know a younger-aged veteran or emergency service person undergoing rehabilitation for injury or Post-Traumatic Stress who yearns for a ‘normal’ life again? Perhaps someone close to you wishes for a revolutionary joint replacement that will get them moving freely again, or just regular refreshing sleep?
Through the generosity of people like you, health and medical research will make these dreams a reality for the men and women that serve to protect us.
For many people, giving their estate, or part of their estate, is an opportunity to give a significant contribution to an organisation they care about and respect. A bequest, large or small, is an effective way of providing a lasting legacy.
Your Will gives you the power to ensure that your estate – everything you now own – is distributed in exactly the way you want. Without a valid Will, your family, friends and organisations you may wish to support may not receive the benefit you intended.
A bequest is a direction through your Will that a gift from your estate is made to a person, or an organisation. Your solicitor or trustee company will explain how to leave a bequest to The Repat Foundation Inc. ABN 80 069 520 869.
You may make a request in your Will that your legacy be used in the area of most need, or that it be dedicated to a particular area or project.

Types of bequests
A percentage bequest is a nominated percentage of your estate.
A specific bequest is a nominated amount or a specific gift.
The residual bequest is what remains of your estate after family and friends have been provided for.
To ensure that the correct preparation and wording of your bequest is recorded in your Will, we suggest you make an appointment with your solicitor.
