SIDS and Kids supports Include a Charity Week
SIDS and Kids is encouraging Australians to consider leaving a gift to charity in their wills next month for Include a Charity Week (7-13 September 2015).
Bequests form the financial basis of most major Australian charities and are absolutely essential for ensuring the good work they do continues into the future.
However, while 75 per cent of us support charities in our lifetimes, only 7.5 per cent leave a bequest to charity in our wills, despite 29 per cent of people saying they intend to.
The Include a Charity campaign seeks to increase the number of people who leave a bequest to charity to 15 per cent by 2020.
Remembering SIDS and Kids in your will leaves a lasting legacy that supports our work in the areas of health promotion, education and bereavement support for families who have experienced the sudden and unexpected death of a baby, infant or child.
