Thank you so much for prayerfully considering a gift in your Will to Baptist World Aid.
Your generous gift – no matter how big or small – will make a real difference in the lives of the world’s poorest men, women, and children for generations to come.
Gifts in Wills help us to prepare for the future. But, more than that, they are your hope for a transformed world – a world free from poverty where all people enjoy the fullness of life God intends.
When you include a gift in your Will, you leave something behind that holds true to your deep values – the legacy of a life marked by love.
It was a natural thing for me to leave something behind to help those that are in great need; so I’ve chosen to include Baptist World Aid Australia in my will. I know anything I leave them will be well used for the support of children and families in need.
For us, leaving a gift isn’t just about leaving a financial legacy, it’s also about leaving a reminder of our values to our children and grandchildren. Through our actions, we pray they are reminded of our heart for the poor and how we lived out our Christian values.

It is important that you consult a solicitor to prepare and make a Will for you. Advice from a qualified legal professional will help to ensure that your Will is valid… which will help to ensure your wishes can be carried out as you intend.
A residual gift is often the most effective way of ensuring that your Will provides for your loved ones first, as it’s the remainder (or a percentage of the remainder) of your estate after everything else has been settled. The following wording is suggested as a guide and is subject to your solicitor’s legal advice:
“I give the residue (or percentage of the residue) of my estate to Baptist World Aid Australia Public Ancillary Fund- ABN 77 507 629 093, and I declare that a receipt issued by the Proper Officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my executor or trustee for the said gift and my executor or trustee shall not be bound to see the application thereof.”
