Making a Difference Now and in the Future: Carole-Anne Priest’s Story

As a supporter of Sydney Community Foundation’s Sydney Women’s Fund, you have the unique opportunity to establish a named sub fund to receive your bequest. The Sydney Community Foundation board (Trustee) will honour your giving wishes in perpetuity.

But why wait until you pass away to make an impact? With a Living Bequest, you can start making a difference today while also planning for the future.

Carole-Anne Priest, a long-time supporter of our women’s empowerment, education and employment pathway programs, has chosen to make a Living Bequest to the Sydney Community Foundation. “I have seen firsthand the positive impact the Foundation’s programs have on women and their families,” says Priest. “I want to continue supporting these programs now and in the future.”

To make a Living Bequest: establish an immediate impact sub-fund and give while you’re still alive. When you pass, the sub-fund will be transformed into an endowment invested for perpetuity.

Our new partnership with Gathered Here makes it easy to set up a free online will containing your giving wishes.
