Leave a gift in your Will

Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and consideration in leaving a gift in your Will to Roundabout Canberra. Leaving a gift in your will can mean you can make a significant contribution to the lives of children and babies in the Canberra region for years to come 

So far, through donations, we’ve supported thousands of children and their families, ensuring local children have the opportunity for a brighter future. But we know that many more need our help, and each year the numbers just keep growing.  

With key factors like the number of cases of family and domestic violence growing, the number of families effected by cost of living pressures, homelessness and the impacts of mental health on families, Roundabout Canberra is committed to being here and offering dignified support to every child who needs us; because regardless of their situation, every child deserves the chance of a brighter future and the care they need.  

Your Legacy will change lives

By choosing Roundabout Canberra in your will, you can change the lives of children and families across our community.  

Here are just a few of the ways your gift will help:  

  • Providing freedom and access to other support though a safe car seat or prams.  
  • Ensuring safety and wellbeing by providing a safe sleeping environment.  
  • Supporting dignity by making sure a child has the clothing and hygiene essentials they need. 
  • Supporting over 700 case and support workers and allowing them to focus resources and time on providing other vital support which can help families to change their circumstances, because Roundabout Canberra is making sure the essentials are in place.  
How to leave a gift in your Will

If you’re considering leaving a gift to Roundabout Canberra in your will, you can add a clause to your will mentioning your intended gift or add a codicil to an existing will. 

We always recommend you seek advice from a solicitor when drafting your will as the wording is very important, and your solicitor can advise you on the different types of gifts. 

Once you’ve set up a gift in your will, please let us know so we can say thank you.  

Bequests are a vital source of income, and we appreciate each and every gift towards helping local children and their families.
