A bequest is a gift made in a Will, which in turn is a legal document specifying how a person wishes his or her property to be distributed after they die. A gift can include money, shares, jewellery, houses and a range of other items.
By leaving a gift to GCC in your Will, you can make a lasting difference and lessen the impact of poverty and hunger in the lives of Ghanaian children, young people and adults who live with disabilities.
How can I leave a bequest?
Leaving a bequest in your will is easy. The following simple statement in your will ensures your wishes are carried out:
‘I give and bequeath the sum of $_____ (*or alternatively a specific gift or percentage of estate can be given) to GCC Inc to be paid free of all duty and to be applied for the general purposes of the organisation. I declare the receipt of the Chief Executive Officer or other proper officer of Gilgal Community Care Inc shall be a sufficient discharge to my executors.’
GCC recommends you obtain legal advice when making or amending a will.
