A gift in your Will

A gift in your Will – also known as a bequest – is a wonderful way to change the lives of vulnerable young people beyond your own lifetime.

Youth Off The Streets Fr Riley speaking with youth

Every child and young person has the potential to make a positive contribution to our world. Leaving a gift in your Will to Youth Off The Streets is a powerful way to help disadvantaged young Australians reach their full potential and transform their future.

A legacy of kindness and hope

Preparing a Will enables you to decide what happens to your estate or assets after you have passed on. It is also an opportunity for you to continue supporting the causes you believe in and the work of organisations that share your values.

    A lasting legacy

    “I have so much respect for Youth Off The Streets. I first volunteered with their Street Walk program and it opened my eyes to just how tough it is for some kids. For me, it’s a privilege to be part of the Youth Off The Streets family by leaving a gift in my Will. I know it will be put to good use.”
