Gift in Will Program
Thank you for your interest in leaving a gift in your Will to St John Giving. We understand the decision to leave a gift in your Will is a significant one. Rest assured in the knowledge that St John WA has supported those in sickness, distress, suffering and danger for over 130 years here in Western Australia. Many people, when updating their Will choose to include a gift to a cause that has been important to them as part of their legacy.
With your help, St John Giving will expand the existing reach of work to help more people in need and break new ground with how we support communities in WA - to make an even greater impact into the future. By leaving a gift in your Will to St John Giving you are helping us on our mission to bring a renewed resilience and strength to all communities of WA – so that every Western Australian has a more fair and equal experience of wellbeing, safety and quality of life.
Once you are ready to start with preparing your Will, we will be there to assist you in the lead up to your appointment with your nominated solicitor. At every step of this process, we will be alongside you to provide the support, guidance and clarity you need to make it as straight forward as possible.
The solicitor acts as an independent professional on your behalf and it is a private, confidential appointment which is just between you and the solicitor. Alongside our supporting solicitors in the greater Perth area we also have the support of solicitors who have independent offices in country locations. Wherever possible, we recommend that you do meet with your solicitor to talk through your instructions face to face.
