Bequests, both large and small, provide significant support in maintaining the Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway as a unique and tranquil location where we can commemorate the sacrifices made by the generation of men and women who saved Australia during World War II.
Their memories are precious – their deeds must always be honoured.
Here we strive to educate the youngest generation of Australians so they too will learn from history and recognise that freedom cannot be bought cheaply.
By leaving a bequest to the Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway, you’ll have a stake in our country’s future while at the same time ensuring that the sacrifices of the past will not be forgotten.
Your gift will honour your memory and help us to uphold the values that we all respect.
Choosing your bequest
It’s important to seek the advice of a qualified solicitor or trustee when making your Will. The Law Institute or Society in your state or territory can refer you to a solicitor who will ensure that your Will is valid and your wishes are expressed correctly.
Here are some ways to make a bequest to Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway:
- leave the residue of your estate after specific bequests have been left to family and friends
- leave a nominated portion or a fixed percentage of your estate. This guards against the effects of Inflation over time
- leave a specific gift, such as property or shares
Remember to review your Will every few years to ensure it still reflects your wishes.
