leave a bequest to variety

Make your gift count now and into the future

Variety – the Children’s Charity Victoria recently established its own foundation that will help secure our long term sustainability. The Variety Foundation gives donors to the opportunity to contribute to our cause whilst having the comfort that they are leaving a lasting legacy. 

 

Your lasting gift will brighten the life of children

A bequest or legacy is a gift of money or assets that you leave through your will. Leaving a bequest is one of the most personal ways that you can support our work and for some; it is an opportunity to make a gift that you may not otherwise be able to make during your lifetime.
Large or small, every gift is greatly appreciated and helps us make a real difference to children in need. 
Your bequest will enable us to provide long-term support through our programs and your generosity ensures our work will continue now and into the future. 
We are happy to discuss the terms of leaving a lasting gift to the Variety Foundation. We ask that you advise us of your intention so that we can effectively plan for the future and discuss ways in which your gift may be recognised (or remain anonymous if you wish) as well as any specific programs which you would like to support. You are under no obligation to inform us of your decision. 
We recommended you seek independent, professional advice to help you in either writing or updating your will. Your solicitor, accountant and/or trustee company can advise you on tax matters such as trusts, guardians, asset valuation and power of attorney.

The Jeffery White House

Jeffery White was a long-time supporter of Variety, and was a regular guest at signature functions such as the Great Grand Final Lunch.

After Jeffery passed away, his business partner Hank Span and his solicitor Lewis O’Brien identified Jeffery’s respect of Variety as an appropriate means of distributing funds left in his Estate.

In September 2006 this commitment became a reality when Hank and Lewis presented Variety a cheque on behalf of Jeffery’s memory for $925,000 to be used by Variety to buy the building in Port Melbourne outright.

This act of generosity will also fund an annual Grant to be presented in Jeffery’s name each year at a signature function.
