A Little Bit About Wills & Bequests

Wills & Bequests – Providing the community with the gift of living full and meaningful lives through customised care with Princes Court retirement village in Mildura.

How you can make a difference through your Will

Princes Court are part of a supportive and caring Mildura aged care community dedicated to providing a happy, safe and enriching life for all, and over the years have had many members of our community generously choose to leave a bequest to Princes Court in their Will. This financial support has life-changing results for the community members at our Mildura retirement villages by allowing us to continue to provide tailored support and care to those who need it.

What is a Bequest?

A Bequest is an instruction included in your Will to leave a gift to a specific institution. A Bequest can be a thoughtful way to honour the memory of a loved one, or simply a way to make a difference to the future of others.

Gifts can be made in a variety of forms:

  • A cash gift of a specific amount.
  • A particular percentage of the estate.
  • A specific asset such as real estate or jewellery.
  • A residue gift, where family & friends are provided for first, and the remainder is gifted
  • A ‘Living gift’, where funds are invested on behalf of the benefactor, with distributions are gifted.
  • As an alternative recipient if the preferred beneficiary has passed away or cannot accept the gift for whatever reason.
  • A conditional gift structure can be used so a spouse or family-member can retain the estate (or a portion of it) for the duration of their lifetime, to then be gifted.

What happens to funds gifted to Princes Court?

Through these incredibly generous and charitable contributions we have been able to provide much-needed support to the broader Mildura community for more than 60 years.

The best way to leave a gift to Princes Court is for ‘general use’, as this enables us to distribute the funds across our community based off prioritised urgency.

All gifts are significant, and these funds are used to support Princes Court in continuing to better the care provided and quality of life for the ageing community.
