We are proud to be funded by the Department of Communities & Justice to provide Specialist Homelessness Services to Armidale, Uralla, Walcha and Guyra. But this funding can’t provide the type and range of services needed in our community and we rely on private and commercial donors to fill the gap.
We’re all in this together.
As little as $5 a week can make a world of difference to women and children who live with domestic violence. We stand with them.
Your donations help us effect real change in the community
LEAVING A BEQUEST IN YOUR WILL
Bequests are gifts that are made as part of a will or trust. Bequests can be made by any individual and set to the desired amount of your choice.
A bequest can be to a person, or it can be a charitable bequest to a non-profit organization, trust, or foundation such as the Women’s Shelter Armidale.
Whether you have $500 or a humble estate, you can make an impact by giving a gift to an organization that you care about. We would be honoured if you would consider the Women’s Shelter Armidale.
Leaving a charitable bequest in a will also means that you’re making a positive impact on the world. You’re creating something wonderful for you to be remembered by, and you can have a smile on your face knowing that your gift will be used toward a good cause.
HOW TO LEAVE A BEQUEST TO THE WOMEN’S SHELTER ARMIDALE:
Once consulting with those directly impacted by your will, such as loved ones and family, we strongly suggest seeking legal advice to assist with actioning and including a bequest in your will.
A legal advisor will be able to provide information and clarify any questions you may have before finalising a bequest.
