Bequests

A Bequest to Scouts WA will contribute to the development of young people through a value system based on the Scout Promise and Law, to help build a better world where people are self-fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society.

Encourage and Support

The First Step, your Will.

If you do consider making a Bequest to the Scout Association WA Branch, the first step is to ensure that your Will is in order.

We have outlined a simple guide to making your Will.
  1. Make a list of all your current assets, together with their approximate individual value.
  2. Decide how, and to whom (the Beneficiaries) you would like these assets (your Estate) to be distributed. You can nominate specific values or portions of your Estate to be received by any number of individuals or organisations.
  3. Choose an Executor – a trusted, knowledgeable person or a company. Your Executor, upon agreeing to the task, is responsible for ensuring that all aspects of your Will are enacted according to your wishes.
  4. Visit a Solicitor or Trustee Company with the above information. These people will help you to put the exact, unambiguous details of your Will into words.
  5. Review your Will from time to time, to ensure that your changing circumstances are considered in your Will.
  6. Please remember updating your Will is not a ‘Do It Yourself’ exercise. It cannot be legally altered simply by crossing out or inserting new words. You must consult with your Solicitor or Trustee, to ensure that any changes made are signed and witnessed in the appropriate manner.
