Make A Bequest

Make Your Legacy Count

For 30 years, we’ve been helping people in our community take control of their health.

By making a bequest to ACON, you can help us continue this important work.

What Is A Bequest?

A bequest is simply a special gift made in your Will of part or all of your estate.

Every gift, no matter how big or small, will help our good work, and your generous spirit, live on.

It’s also a great way to make a contribution that doesn’t impact on your current financial position.

 

What Kind Of Gift Could I Leave?

There are several ways you can leave a gift to ACON:

  • A percentage pledge (a percentage of the remainder of your estate can be left to ACON after your family and other beneficiaries have been taken care of)
  • A fixed cash amount
  • Items of value
  • A life insurance policy
  • A life interest (you would give ACON an interest in a property and/or other assets for a prescribed period of time)

 

How Will My Bequest Be Used?

Your generous donation will help make a difference that will last forever:

Help End HIV Transmission In NSW
Advances in HIV treatments and testing technologies mean we can end HIV transmission in NSW by 2020. Our education campaigns, rapid testing centres and sexual health programs for gay men form a vital part of the strategy to end HIV.

Help ELP Provide HIV Support Services
Over 12,000 people in NSW live with HIV and many rely on the information and services we provide, especially those who are newly diagnosed with the virus as well as those who require in home care.

Help Provide LGBTI Health Services
Over 500,000 people in NSW identify as LGBTI. The information and services we provide – such as counselling, substance support, safety and inclusion initiatives and healthy ageing programs – all help improve the health of LGBTI people and their families.

Help Advocate For Our Community
We work with legislators, policymakers and service providers to help them understand the needs of LGBTI people and people affected by HIV.

 

How Do I Make A Bequest?

Leaving a bequest is easy. If you don’t already have a have a Will, the first thing you need to do is get some legal advice for creating one. If you don’t have a solicitor, you can contact the NSW Public Trustee.

If you already have a Will, then all you need to do is add a codicil, a short amendment to your existing Will. If you’re preparing your Will and would like to leave a bequest to ACON, we recommend the following wording:

“I give (free of any relevant duties): (the whole of my estate) (the remainder of my estate) (__% of my estate) (or the sum of $_____) to ACON Health Limited, PO Box 350 Darlinghurst NSW 1300, for its general purposes. The receipt of the treasurer, secretary or public officer for the time being of ACON Health Ltd is an absolute discharge to my Trustee or Executor.”

It is important that when making your Will you refer to us by our full legal name and address:

ACON Health Limited
414 Elizabeth St
Surry Hills NSW 2010
