The impact of Bequests
"I wake up every day energized and looking forward
to leading Teen Challenge QLD (TCQ).
I visit the students at both the men’s and women's rehabilitation centres regularly, and each time I meet with the brave men and women who are on their journey to freedom and recovery, I am so thankful to the supporters and donors who make this work possible. The widespread use of drugs is devastating individuals, families and communities across Australia. Teen Challenge QLD services are needed more than ever. My vision for the future is to see all services expand so that together, we can meet the growing need and open the doors to more young people like Ami.”
- Joanne Hobbs CEO
“My life changed when I was 10, my innocence was stolen and a downward spiral began. My Ice addiction led me to the sex industry and a life of brokenness and instability. Then I found Teen Challenge and was welcomed with open arms; no judgement, just love. I am now the woman I always wanted to be. My future is
full of possibilities.”
An opportunity to invest in future generations...
Why leave a Bequest?
A Bequest will transform lives for years to come.
Your gift no matter how large or small will be so much more than a financial donation, it will leave a legacy of kindness and generosity that will echo across generations. It will allow more people like Ami to find freedom and wholeness.
A new generation of people freed from addictions will one day give thanks for our generation's willingness to help provide support for them.
Types of Bequests
Residuary Bequest is a gift of a percentage of the remainder of your estate after all your other wishes have been fulfilled and expenses met. Because the value of your gift will rise with inflation it will be worth as much to TCQ tomorrow as it is today.
Specific Bequest is a gift of a specific item of value.
For example a painting or property.
Pecuniary Bequest is simply a figure of a specific amount of money.
