The kids are alright, so why not include a charity

Posted September 9, 2014

You don’t need to be a billionaire to leave a charitable bequest, or to make a difference after you’re gone.p>

That’s the message driving Include a Charity Week, a national awareness campaign by 140 Australian charities seeking to encourage people to make a philanthropic gift when preparing or updating their wills.

“You don’t need to be a celebrity or really mega wealthy to think about doing it,” the board director of Include a Charity, Ross Anderson, told Give Now. “Every gift is important.”

Bequests form the foundation of many Australian charities, yet relatively few Australians make them, Mr Anderson said.
