Leave A Bequest

Thank you for considering leaving a gift to Meals On Wheels St Lucia in your Will. We would love to talk to you and discuss some of the options available. It is important that you discuss this with your family before making any decisions. If you decide to leave Meals on Wheels St Lucia a bequest, we would love to speak to you, please call us on 3870 1670.

A gift in your Will – no matter how big or small – ensures that Meals On Wheels will be there for those in our community who are struggling with the challenges of age, frailty, homelessness, or crisis.

Deciding what you wish to give

If you would like to include a gift in your Will to Meals On Wheels St Lucia to care for those in need, here are some options. 

  • A percentage of your estate. You can leave us any percentage you choose. This way as the value of your assets increase or decrease, your legacy will adjust also,

  • The residue of your estate. After you have taken care of loved ones, you can leave us the whole or part of what remains of your estate,

  • A specific gift in your Will. You can give a specific amount of money or items such as shares, paintings or property. Of course this does not allow for changes in your circumstances or inflation.

Below is an example of wording that you can, however we recommend discussing this with both your family, and a solicitor.
