Making a Bequest
You do not have to be wealthy to make a bequest. A small contribution can make a big difference. A bequest is an instruction you make in your will to gift to a charity or cause. It may be in the form of money, property, shares and debentures, works of art, or other valuables.
The Foundation supports research, development and mentoring in the areas of arts, environment and social justice. Bequests can nominate an area of choice and may form the basis of a scholarship, award, project or residency. A bequest to the Foundation provides unique opportunities for individuals to excel in their chosen field and contribute to building sustainable, healthy and creative communities in Tasmania.
