The impact of Bequests
"I was 18 and in the grip of heroin addiction when I first came across Teen Challenge. I had been battling an escalating drug addiction for 3 years. I didn’t want to go to rehab but my time in Teen Challenge changed and saved my life.
I am now in a leadership role at a Sunny Coast high school and married with 2 great children. My role as a teacher and head of a department allows me to positively influence young people's lives. I know I can help my students find their potential and purpose in life."
“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.
