Create Your Legacy
Leaving a gift to the Sunshine Coast Foundation in your Will is an opportunity to share your values and dreams for the kind of future you want to pass on to your children and grandchildren. You don’t need to choose between taking care of your loved ones and leaving a gift to charity – you can do both!
Leave a Gift in Your Will
Leaving a gift in your Will can be as unique as you are. Are you passionate about social justice? Do you want to support housing and care for vulnerable community members? Do you relish the natural environment and the beauty of the Coast? Or maybe the arts are what has added richness to your life. The Sunshine Coast Foundation can help you leave a gift in your Will for the causes on the Coast that you care about most, leaving a legacy that generates benefits long after you are gone.
A gift in your Will can make a major difference in the ability of the Sunshine Coast Foundation to serve the needs of the community. Please make sure you have an up-to-date will, and consider making a gift to the Sunshine Coast Foundation in addition to your other bequests, which will pay dividends for decades to come.
If you choose, you may notify us that you have left a gift in your Will and become a member of the Foundation’s Legacy Circle. The names of Legacy Circle members are published in the Foundation’s Annual Report and on our website to inspire others to consider doing the same.
