A Gift in your Will

When creating your Will, firstly provide for family and friends, and then consider whether you can also include a gift to Katoke.

The Katoke Trust has made significant advances in education, medical care and agriculture in Tanzania. Perhaps you are already a Donor or are now reviewing or making a fresh Will and have decided to give to this most worthy charity.  You may have had a recommendation from a friend. Before proceeding you should personally review the Katoke website (katoke.com.au) and come to some understanding of the exciting changes to young people’s lives and also the wider community.

Will bequests are a significant fundraising opportunity for you to sustain this project.

What you need to do in 3 steps:

1. Decide your gift type and value

You might consider making a gift in one of 4 gifts:

  • Specific cash gift.
  • Specific asset.
  • Leave a percentage of your estate.
  • You may leave a part of the balance of your estate after other gifts.

2. Make or update your will

In the document attached here, we summarise:

    • Things to consider when making or updating your will.
    • The purpose of your Will gift.
    • Draft clauses for consideration by you and your Lawyer.

3. Notify your family and friends and the Katoke Trust

We believe that it is an important step to talk to family and loved ones about your Will gift. Communication will ensure your final wishes are carried out. Let your family know that an enduring gift to the Katoke Trust is important to you and advise any executors and guardians of your wishes.

We ask that you consider contacting us to let us know of your intended gift. Your notification helps us by providing assurance of future investment into our key priority areas and allows us to personalise communication with you and focus on programs that interest you.

Testimonials from other organisations

The following comments from CEOs underline the value of a will gift.

‘Charities rely heavily on the generous giving spirit of community minded individuals who choose to leave a lasting legacy to them, giving the charity the financial stability to plan ahead for new projects.  Donations, no matter how small, have been the foundation of crucial welfare support e.g., for disadvantaged children.’  Peter Kell, former CEO of Anglicare.

‘The motivation behind an individual’s decision to remember a charity in their Will may vary. But the result remains the same- contributing to the financial security of that charity into the future. ‘  Grahame Gould, Lifeline:

‘Youthworks would not have succeeded without solid tax-deductible donor gifts and significant Will Gifts over the years. With these gifts we have furthered the advances in bringing up-to-date the SRE curricula and many building projects. Please consider a Will Gift no matter how small.’ Dr Lindsay Stoddart, former and founding CEO of Anglican Youthworks
