This information is provided for those considering making a bequest to Bible College SA.



Why do I need a Will?

Everyone needs a Will to ensure that their family and/or others are properly provided for. A Will allows you to:-


  • Name the Executor/s you would like to carry out your wishes
  • Make arrangements for the guardianship of minors
  • Give your estate to family, friends and organizations

If a Will does not exist, State legislation determines who obtains your estate. This may be to the benefit those you would not have chosen.



When should I change or review my will?

You can amend your Will at any time. You may choose to do this as family and financial circumstances change. These circumstances could include -


  • Marriage, separation or divorce
  • Death of beneficiary or executor
  • Change of name for yourself or a beneficiary
  • Change in family situation (eg. new additions to the family, disability of family member)
  • Change in financial circumstances (business interests, life insurance, superannuation assets)



Who should prepare my Will?

Wills should be prepared by your Solicitor, State or Public Trustee, or Trustee Company.
