Writing your will is one of the most important things you’ll ever do, and there are some big decisions to make. You may wish to include a donation to a cause that means a lot to you, giving yourself a voice and impact far into the future.
By making a bequest to the Cambodian Children’s Trust (CCT), you join a special group of people who are passionate about helping children and families break free from the intergenerational cycle of poverty. It’s a gift that will be life changing for others, while also leaving a lasting legacy in your name.
Your gift will help us continue the valuable work we do in the Battambang community.
CCT’s holistic range of community, education and social enterprise services help children break the intergenerational cycle of poverty, while also promoting family preservation and reintegration.
“I love CCT like part of my family because they have helped me in many ways. CCT has made sure my mother has a safe place to live. They support my nieces and nephew to study and helped me study a range of skills. They help me a lot, and not just me but many other children. I want to use the skills I learnt to support my family. Before, I had a very hard life, but now I have the best life!” – Poly, CCT beneficiary

How to leave a bequest
Making a bequest is an important decision, but doesn’t have to be complicated.
Step 1 – Make or update your will
Step 2 – Decide your gift
Step 3 – Notify CCT and your loved ones
If you’ve arranged to make a gift to CCT, we’d love to hear from you and have the opportunity to say thank you.
Getting the language right:
In adding a bequest to your will, we strongly recommend you consult with your lawyer or advisor. The following is a guide only, for your solicitor, on how to articulate your gift to CCT.
“I give [the sum of $………..] or [………..% of the residue of my estate] or [specified assets] to Cambodian Children’s Trust Australia ABN 83 158 383 558 (CCTA) for its general purposes. The receipt from any director or other authorised officer of CCTA will be an absolute discharge to my Executor/Trustee and I declare that my Executor/Trustee shall not be responsible for seeing to the application of that gift.”
Be sure to let the CCT team know at [email protected] if you are thinking of including us in your will.
