Gifts in Wills

Every day we are profoundly grateful to all who wish to make a lasting positive impact on future generations of women.  

By including a Gift in your Will to YWCA we can continue to help future generations of women and their families access safe, affordable housing and personalised support to build the lives they want for themselves.

We appreciate writing or updating a Will is a decision that needs to be considered carefully, and that’s why we have developed our Gifts in Wills Guide to help you consider this decision in your own time and provide a clear step-by-step process.

Our Gifts in Wills Guide contains everything you need to know on making or updating your Will and how your gift will have a lasting impact.

Write your free online Will now 

We recommend that you work with a solicitor or legal advisor to write your Will. Alternatively, if you only need a simple Will, you could use an online service to create one. 

We’ve partnered with Gathered Here, an Australian end-of-life services provider that host a free and easy to use online Will writing service. Their website takes you through easy step by step guide to writing your Will, with unlimited updates. It also makes it easy for you to include a gift to YWCA Australia. 

Consider letting YWCA Australia know 

Once you’ve finalised your Will, and spoken to your loved ones about your wishes, we’d be so grateful to be informed. 

While we understand this is a personal decision, knowing about your generosity allows us to thank you personally, to understand any wishes for the gift, and for YWCA to plan confidently for the future.
