By leaving a gift in your Will to Redkite, you’ll have a lasting impact on the lives of children with cancer and their families. Gifts in Wills mean we can be there for children with cancer and their families – today, tomorrow, for however long they need us.

Anyone can leave a gift in their Will and of course, we are asking you to provide for your loved ones, dependents and family first.

When drawing up or making changes to your Will, it is always best to consult a solicitor to ensure that your intentions are properly recorded and your wishes are carried out. If you already have a Will, then the easiest way to include a gift to Redkite is with a codicil which is a formal addition that updates and amends your existing Will.

The decision to leave a gift in your will is a very personal one. Notifying us of your gift gives us the opportunity to thank you for this great generosity in your lifetime and also allows us to keep you up to date with the impact that gifts, just like yours, are making in the lives of children with cancer.

Any information that you choose to share with us regarding your Will with complete confidentiality. We also recommend that you tell your loved ones of your wishes.

If you would like to find out more about how to leave a gift in your Will, please contact our Gifts in Wills Officer Cheryl Kirgan on 1800 733 548 or ckirgan@redkite.org.au.
