Gifts in Wills

Make a lasting gift to Catherine House

Making a gift by bequest, no matter the amount will provide a permanent legacy to support the ongoing work of Catherine House.

By nominating Catherine House Inc. as the beneficiary or part beneficiary in your will, you will make a profound difference to the lives of women who experience homelessness.

There are many ways in which you can make a bequest and we encourage you to contact your legal advisor to discuss your personal wishes.

A bequest can be added as a codicil to your existing will or included in a new will. If you haven’t written a Will yet, you can write your Will online with Safewill, an affordable and legally-binding Will-writing website. Every Will is reviewed by an Australian solicitor to ensure it is filled out correctly.

If you would like to write your Will with a lawyer in person, we have a partnership with an Adelaide-based law firm who will offer a discount for your services if you leave a gift in your Will to Catherine House. For more information about this offer, please contact Jaylee Cooper for a confidential discussion: [email protected]


To ensure your intentions are correctly followed, it is important to word your Will or codicil correctly. Here is some suggested wording: “I bequeath [ ___ percent of my residual Estate / the sum of $ ______ (choose one alternative)] to Catherine House Inc, (ABN: 32 944 754 177), (insert address*) , to be used for any high priority needs of, or connected with, Catherine House Incorporated”
