We recommend seeking legal advice when creating or updating your Will. Prepare as many details of your finances as possible before seeing your solicitor. It may also help to sit down with your family beforehand and decide how much you could realistically afford to give as a gift. 

To help make the process as simple as possible, we’ve partnered with Gathered Here, a free and easy online Will writing service backed up by a team of legal experts. It takes less than 10 minutes to write your Will.

There are three common ways supporters choose to leave a gift to UNICEF Australia:

  • A residuary gift is the most effective way to leave a gift in your Will to UNICEF. It’s the remainder after you have made provisions for your family and friends. A residuary gift also keeps up with inflation which means the gift will achieve as much in the future as it will now. 
  • A percentage of your estate is the nominated portion or fixed percentage of your estate to UNICEF. A percentage gift also keeps up with inflation. 
  • A pecuniary gift is a specific amount of money left for UNICEF.
