Leave a Bequest

Your generosity could make all the difference to a young person living in rural and regional area that will struggle to obtain the level of education and training they desire. Leaving a gift in your will is greatly appreciated by the Country Education Foundation and it will make a significant contribution to helping us change the lives of many across Australia.

Different ways you can support the Country Education Foundation

Leaving a gift in your will can be done in a number of ways. Bequests can be made for CEF’s general purposes, or to committees for students directly. If you’re unsure about the process, you may like to speak with your solicitor, trustee company or the Public Trustee.

The gift can take the form of:

  • the residue of the estate
  • a percentage of the estate
  • a specific amount of money
  • a life insurance or superannuation policy
  • assets such as shares, property, works of art, jewellery
  • an investment in perpetuity
