How your bequest makes a difference

As a charity, Lifeline Tasmania relies on gifts in Wills from everyday Tasmanians to support our life-saving crisis support and suicide prevention services.  These very special gifts impact our future ability to continue delivering our services and preventing suicides. 

Without funding to sustain our services, where would the 1,000,000 people who reach out to us each year turn for help? 

For example, your gift may be used to recruit, train and equip Crisis Supporters who work tirelessly to provide hope and help to Australians who are in crisis or thinking about suicide.  Or your gift may help Lifeline Tasmania to develop new programs, like Chats, that reduces the social isolation of older Tasmanians.

Your legacy gift will help make sure that Lifeline Tasmania can continue to be there – 24/7 –to help give hope to people in crisis and save lives from suicide. Together, we can work toward creating a suicide-free Tasmania and keep our future generations safe.

How will your bequest be used

Lifeline Tasmania will use your generous gift where it is needed most.  To us, this means wherever it will have the most impact for our help-seekers.  We work hard to ensure that our services are continually evolving to meet the changing needs of our communities and our help-seekers.

Suggested wording for your Will

Making a Will is a very important and complex process.  We suggest you consider using this wording when creating or updating your Will to include Lifeline.  But Lifeline cannot give you legal advice so it’s always important that you consult with your solicitor. Here are some examples you can consider.  

Residuary bequest
A residuary gift is a portion of the residue of your estate after you have made gifts to family and friends and taxes and debts are paid. This gift keeps its value regardless of inflation, because it’s not a specific amount. You choose the percentage to leave, or choose 100% to gift the remainder of your estate.
