A gift to Scope in your Will is a powerful, life-changing gesture.

Leaving a gift in your Will allows Scope to help future generations

Throughout Scope’s history we have cared for people with a disability with compassion, dignity and respect. We have worked hard to change society’s attitudes so that people with a disability can live their lives in more inclusive and welcoming communities.

Leaving a gift in your Will is a way of securing the future of Scope’s services and will allow us to continue providing these services to future generations for years to come.

After you have cared for your loved ones, you might like to consider leaving a gift in your Will to Scope.

How do I include Scope in my Will?

There are a number of ways you can leave a gift in your Will.

  • You can leave a fixed percentage of your estate.
  • You can leave a specific sum of money.
  • You can leave the residue of your estate after expenses.
  • You can leave a specific item such as a share portfolio, jewellery, artwork etc…

The right wording for your Will is so important.

Some suggested examples of wording for your Will include:

“I give to Scope (Aust) Ltd (ABN 63 004 280 871) in the state of Victoria a ____% share of my estate to be used for its general purposes. The receipt of an authorised officer or treasurer of Scope (Aust) Ltd will be sufficient discharge for my executors.”

We would like to thank you for your generosity.

Leaving a gift in your Will is a very personal matter. Once you have included Scope in your Will, we would encourage you to contact us and let us know. We would like the opportunity to thank you.
