We would be honoured if you were to consider leaving a gift in your Will to Bucaan Community House Inc.

Bequests in support of our work change lives and have a huge impact on our community. A gift, no matter how small, is valued, appreciated and used effectively.

Our promise to you:

  • We understand that remembering your family and loved ones is your first priority when making your Will.
  • If you include Bucaan Community House Inc in your Will, we would love to hear from you. However, we respect your wish not to tell us and we won’t keep asking you.
  • We will use your gift effectively and with integrity and respect.
  • We will use your gift for the purpose for which it was given.

Types of gifts you can leave

A charitable gift can take a variety of forms including:

  • Residuary – the remainder of an estate after specific gifts have been disbursed
  • Percentage – a percentage of either the residue or the entire estate
  • Pecuniary – a specific gift of cash
  • A specific asset – real estate, shares, bonds or other particular items of value

Both residuary and percentage gifts are the most effective in helping ensure the provision of our services long into the future as they hold their value over time.
