Leave a lasting gift

Everyone finds different ways to make their mark on the world. One way of doing this is by leaving a lasting gift in your Will.

When you leave a bequest to Churches of Christ in Queensland, you give a gift that lasts longer than your lifetime, a gift that will always be remembered.

After providing for your family, a gift to Churches of Christ or one of our specific entities or services is a special way of ensuring that the mission of the church continues. Depending on family situations, some gifts are large and some are small, but all are vital to the works of the church.

How to leave a gift in your Will

Talk to your solicitor about creating a new will or updating an existing one to include a bequest to Churches of Christ.

There are many ways you can leave a gift after you have looked after the people you care about, including:
•    Leave a specific gift
•    Leave a percentage of your estate
•    Leave the residue of your estate
•    Leave the whole estate
•    Donate insurance benefits

* Please note that you are under no obligation to leave a gift in your Will to Churches of Christ. However, should you wish to make a gift in your Will, or make a donation, we encourage you to seek legal advice.

Thank you for your consideration in leaving a lasting gift in your Will.

Partner with us

Create and encourage an environment of giving at your workplace. As an organisation there are several ways you can provide compassionate, professional care and support for vulnerable children and adults.

Corporate giving
We are committed to developing mutually beneficial long-lasting partnerships that will support your organisation’s corporate social responsibility. We can align your corporate gifts to key projects, corporate grants, in-kind support and matched giving.

Annual charity beneficiary
Select Churches of Christ as your organisation's annual charity beneficiary, and rest assured that your generosity will be dedicated to individuals, families and communities in need.

Workplace giving
You can maximise your organisation's involvement by encouraging your employees to get involved by regularly donating a small portion of their income before tax, and then matching their contribution.

Staff Fundraising
You can encourage your staff to fundraise for specific program activity throughout the year.

These pre-tax donations are processed from your company's payroll, and your employee-matching donations are tax-deductible.

Corporate volunteering
Corporate volunteering allows your organisation as a whole, and your individual employees, to gain valuable experience and the opportunity to contribute to a very worthy cause.

Send a team or individual along to one of our many services where they will participate in a range of meaningful activities that match their areas of expertise or interest.

Pro Bono work
Your employees can offer their skills and expertise to directly help people in need. Pro bono work allows employees to utilise their existing skills and gain valuable new perspectives whilst working in a new environment.

For more information on how you can help, please telephone 1800 600 900 or email fundraising@cofcqld.com.au.

Your corporate support will have a profound impact. Thank you.

Memorial gifts

Giving a gift in memory of a family member or a loved one is a special way to celebrate their life.

By asking friends and family to make an 'in-memoriam' donation to Churches of Christ, you are offering them both an opportunity to honour the memory of the dearly departed, and to support the vital work we perform, transforming lives of those in need.

Memorials can be established in many ways:

•    as a tribute in lieu of flowers
•    as an anniversary gift 'in memoriam'
•    as a regularly pledged donation 'in perpetual remembrance'
•    as a heritage gift from your Will, creating a lasting memorial

Your thoughtfulness, and that of your friends and family, will be gratefully acknowledged by Churches of Christ via a letter of condolence and a list of people who donated in memory of your loved one. We will also send a thank you letter and receipt directly to each donor.

To organise a memorial donation or to arrange for memorial envelopes to be sent to the funeral home of your choice, please contact us on 1800 600 900.

Thank you for your special consideration.
