Wednesday, 12 September 2012 From 17th to 23rd September, Redkite (alongside 130 other charities) is taking part in ‘Include a Charity’ week.
The focus of IAC week is to raise public awareness about why more Australians should consider leaving a bequest to their favourite charity in their Will.
Why leave a bequest?
Currently, although over 70% of all Australians support charities during their lifetime, only 7.5% choose to support charities with a bequest. If this percentage were to increase to just 12%, an additional $440 million would be generated every year. Imagine what could be achieved with that additional funding.
Who can make a bequest?
It's a common misconception that only wealthy people make charitable bequests. The reality is that most bequests are made by everyday, hardworking people who want to make a positive difference to their community.
Every gift, no matter how small, helps create a better world. Make a lasting impression on the future and join us in supporting children and young adults with cancer for years to come.
