Bequests

Leaving a gift in your Will – a lasting legacy

A Bequest or Legacy is a gift nominated in a legal Will. Prahran Mission has a well established bequest program. Funds from bequests enable us to support programs and services that do not receive government funding. This allows us to be innovative and flexible in our approach to providing much needed services.

Once you’ve made provisions for your family and loved ones, please consider including Prahran Mission in your Will. By leaving a gift in your Will, you will really make a difference – helping people who are experiencing poverty, homelessness, social or economic disadvantage, or who are living with a mental illness.

You can leave a gift to Prahran Mission in a number of ways:

  • by leaving a percentage of your estate
  • by leaving the residue – what is left over after your family and loved ones have been provided for
  • by leaving a specific sum or an asset such as property, shares, or belongings.
