A gift in your will is a part of your legacy and an expression of how you’d like to use your faith to create lasting change for the world’s most marginalised people.
Thank you so much for considering a gift in your will to Jesuit Mission. A bequest has the power to change the lives of people for generations to come. For example, your powerful gift will fund vital education programs that help break cycles of poverty; provide access to clean water that will protect communities from disease; and allow us to walk alongside vulnerable individuals in their times of need, providing pastoral care and spiritual guidance. Leaving a gift in your will to Jesuit Mission is something that you, your family and loved ones, can be proud of. You can be assured that every cent of your hard-earned money will be stewarded wisely to best benefit those who are most vulnerable and in need.
In leaving a bequest, there are different options you may choose:
  • Pecuniary bequest gifts are a specific nominated amount,
  • Residual bequest gifts can be the remainder (or percentage of the remainder) of your estate after other gifts have been disbursed, or
  • Specific gifts can be items of value such as property, artwork or shares.
We recommend that you speak to your state public trustee or solicitor when preparing your will. They will help you draft the document and explain the different options.
Students at the Jesuit-run college

Bringing your wishes to light

John and Pauline are two Jesuit Mission supporters who wanted to know what they could do to reflect their life, faith and vision. They found that leaving a gift in their will to help people in need through Jesuit Mission would perfectly capture their hopes and dreams of a better future for all.

“We’d like to make life easier for those people in need, and to help them support their countries. The Jesuits have a good knowledge of where money is needed, and how it could be best used.”
