Leaving A Bequest


A bequest is a plan to give!


Sydney Heritage Fleet is a registered charitable organisation that depends on the support and generosity of the general community, benefactors and its members to survive financially.

Leaving a bequest to Sydney Heritage Fleet means you have the use of your funds or property during your lifetime but take the opportunity to provide ongoing support to the maintenance of Australia’s valuable maritime heritage after you ‘cross the bar’.

You may choose to leave a particular asset or a specified sum of money as your bequest or you can leave a percentage of your total estate, or a percentage of the residue of your estate, which means that you can ensure family and friends are provided for as well as benefiting the Fleet.

You may choose to leave your bequest freely – “no strings attached” – so that Sydney Heritage Fleet can apply the money to the area(s) of most need or you may elect to leave a bequest with a specification that the money is used for a particular purpose – for example, to be used for maintenance of a particular vessel.
