How to Leave a Gift in Your Will

We’re so thankful that you’re considering including The Compassionate Friends Queensland in your Will. To make it as simple as possible, we’ve provided some suggested wording below.  Should you wish to make a gift to us as a bequest in a new Will or a Codicil to an existing Will, we recommend you seek specific personal advice from a solicitor. If you do make a bequest to TCFQ, please let us know, we’d like to thank you for thinking of us!
