Gift in Will

Leaving a gift in your Will to the Community Broadcasting Foundation is an empowering way of supporting the future of independent, community-led media in Australia.

Your gift will help to enrich people’s lives with a diversity of choice in our media. It will help produce local stories, news and cultural content reflecting the many perspectives, people and communities that make up Australia; to ensure community broadcasting is at the heart of every community.

Your gift will connect people and leave a lasting impact for future generations.


How do I leave a gift in my Will?

To make sure that your wishes are undertaken exactly as you would like, it is important to use the correct wording, so that your Will is legally valid. Making a valid Will means that your family, friends and those that have been important to you are prioritised. It also gives you an opportunity to show your support to organisations such as the Community Broadcasting Foundation.

If you have an existing Will, it is easy to add the Community Broadcasting Foundation to it through what is know as a Codicil. A Codicil is a simple update form that gets attached to your Will. To amend you current Will, please download and complete this Codicil.We will always use your gift in the way that you want it to be used, however by keeping the wording of your Will quite generic, it means that we can channel your gift to the areas of community broadcasting that are in the most need at the time. There are a number of ways that you can leave a gift in your Will, generally it is through a specific gift, a percentage gift or a residuary gift.
