A bequest is a charitable gift made as part of your Will. Bequests left to Benetas are vital to ensuring significant projects can proceed. Previous bequests have allowed us to create sensory gardens at residential facilities, undertake extensive renovations and helped fund significant One Wish Program requests.

A gift in your Will to Benetas could touch the lives of future generations of Victorians as they grow older and need support.


Almost three out of four Australians support charities in our lifetime.

We hold morning teas; shave our heads; run marathons; bake cakes - all in the name of lending a hand to our favourite charities. However, when it comes to remembering these organisations in our Wills, most of us forget.

In fact, only 7% of Australians leave a gift in their Will, also known as a bequest. If we could increase that figure to just 14% over time, we could generate an additional $440 million every year for good causes.

Benetas is a proud member of the Include a Charity campaign. We want to encourage more people to think about including a gift in their Will to worthy organisations like Benetas, after they’ve taken care of their family and friends.

You can choose to leave a gift to Benetas as an entire organisation, or to a specific Benetas site or service such as Benetas St George’s or our community services in the Grampians.

Please let us know if you have added us to your Will already. We’d like to have the opportunity to thank you now and show our appreciation.
