One of the best ways to plan for the future, and ensure that your final wishes are carried out, is to have a valid Will in place.
Writing or updating your Will can be an overwhelming prospect. However, with the right legal advice it can be much simpler than you think.
To help, we offer a range of obligation free Will writing offers to help our supporters and the broader WA community access professionally prepared standard Wills at a reduced cost.
The importance of a Will
Simply put, a Will helps to ensure that the needs of those important to you are met, in a way that you are comfortable with, whether that be family, friends, charities or even pets.
In Western Australia, if you don’t have a valid Will the Court will appoint an Administrator who will determine how your estate will be distributed. This means that you won’t have any say in who benefits from your estate, or who manages it. It may also cost more to finalise your estate as there is more paperwork involved.
Making sure that your Will is up to date and valid will gives you and those you care about peace of mind and confidence that your wishes will be upheld.

How leaving a gift in your will helps your community
We encourage you to think of your loved ones first when it comes to distributing your assets, and then consider leaving what’s left to a cause that you are passionate about.
Caroline Bryndzej, our Philanthropy Manager, says donations in Wills were invaluable and one of the largest single sources of funding for the organisation.
“Every year 13,000 West Australians hear the words ‘you have cancer’ and in 2017, almost 1200 of those were from the South West region,” she said.
“As a community-funded organisation we rely on donations, fundraising and support to continue providing prevention and early detection messages, and much-needed support to families affected by cancer.
“By having a valid Will you can help ensure your wishes are fulfilled and your loved ones are looked after, as well as creating a lasting legacy by helping provide care today and hope for the future.
“Including a gift for us in your Will, no matter the size, will make a real difference in helping us to reduce the impact and incidence of cancer in our South West,” Caroline adds.
