Your wish for tomorrow

If caring for those you love, and who depend on you for security, wellbeing and guidance is important to you, then you will want to ensure that it continues ... even beyond your own lifetime.

That's why making a Will is considered by many to be one of the most caring and loving things you can do for your family and friends. At the same time, you can extend that caring even further – and keep your kindness and compassion alive for years to come – by including a bequest to the KZN Cerebral Palsy Association.

Leaving a charitable bequest in your Will allows you to make a substantial gift which you might otherwise not be able to consider. And because bequests to the KZN Cerebral Palsy Association are tax deductible, it could also lead to the rest of your estate being taxed at a lower rate.

Particularly if your own children are grown up and self-sufficient, you may find tremendous satisfaction in using your Will to give disabled children the therapy and care they need to make the most of life.

If you already have a Will
Adding a bequest to an existing Will can easily be done by means of a codicil. Whether you are having a new Will drawn up or adding a codicil, you are strongly advised to consult an attorney, banker or trust company for professional advice.

You are welcome to contact Ina Borstlap at our Head Office on 031 700 3956 to arrange a visit to discuss how a legacy from you could be best put to work to reflect your special compassion and caring.

Types of bequests:

There are many different ways to structure a bequest to charity. Here are some of the options:

A fixed sum or item
This is the simplest form of bequest, but it has the disadvantage of not making allowance for inflation or any changes in your circumstances. If you choose this option, you need to review your Will regularly to make sure you are not giving away items you no longer possess or that sums of money that seemed extremely generous ten years ago are still relevant.

A percentage
The advantage is that bequests naturally increase or decrease as the value of your estate fluctuates – and it ensures a fair distribution among all your heirs.

The Reside (or a portion of it)
Having first looked after your family and friends, whatever is left over can be left in whole, or in part, to one or more of your favourite charities.

Life Assurance
Policies taken out early in life to safeguard a young family may no longer be necessary and you may decide to cede the proceeds to a worthy organisation. Or, you can take out a new policy, naming the KZN Cerebral Palsy Association as the beneficiary.
