Home 9 Leave a gift in your will

Making a lasting impact

Leaving a bequest or gift in your Will to B Miles Women’s Foundation is a powerful way to support future women in crisis without affecting your current finances.

Your gift will provide safety, support, therapy and recovery to women recovering from homelessness.

 

How your gift will help

We receive funding through the NSW Government’s Specialist Homelessness Services Program and other grants. We rely on the generosity of our donors and partners to ensure we can continue to provide exceptional services to women, regardless of any fluctuations to the government funding environment.

Your gift will be used where the need is greatest across our vital services, including:

  • providing safe housing across Sydney
  • removing barriers to mental health support and therapy for women in recovery from homelessness
  • giving women the best possible chance of exiting homelessness, maintaining stable housing and managing their mental wellbeing, and
  • bringing about healing, recovery, self-confidence, wellbeing, meaning, and social inclusion for women recovering from homelessness.

Upon my hospital discharge I was destitute and hopeless, I had no one to turn to when you gently and lovingly guided me towards stable housing, much needed clinical support and reassurance that I’m not alone and voiceless.

Suggested wording

It is important to have an up-to-date Will to ensure that your wishes are honoured and to ease uncertainty and additional stress for family members.
