Gifts in Will

Leaving a gift to Bedford in your will gives the next generation living with disability the freedom to live the life they choose.

Leaving a gift to Bedford in your Will gives people living with disability the freedom to live the life they choose.

Bedford doesn't just offer jobs to people living with disability; we genuinely care about changing lives through providing a range of opportunities, pathways and programs. A gift in your will allows you to continue to support the causes that are important to you, beyond your life.

Leaving a gift to Bedford means you are partnering with us for the future. It allows us to make major improvements to facilities and sites that we may not be able to currently accommodate.

Reflecting your wishes in your Will doesn’t need to be complicated. First and foremost, your will should consider your family and loved ones. After that, we invite you to consider becoming a partner with Bedford. Your bequest will provide a lasting contribution to future generations living with disability and their families.

  • Expanding our Day Options programs and hiring specialist teachers to develop skills, increase confidence and provide opportunities for over 400 clients
  • Improving workplaces and facilities for over 1000 supported employees and 400 Day Options clients
  • Assisting people with disability to move from supported to open employment.

We are grateful for those who consider leaving a gift to Bedford in their Will. If you have decided to leave Bedford a gift in your Will, we would love to hear from you and invite you to join our Bequest Society. If you’ve made a bequest to Bedford, we would love to say thank you and ensure you are kept up to date with our plans.

If you would like more information on how we can acknowledge your legacy and gift in your will, please get in touch with us on 8275 0211 or email for a discussion today. We thank you for considering Bedford when preparing your Will.

Bedford have partnered with Safewill to give our supporters 50% off the cost of preparing an online Will. That's a saving of $80!

All gifts, no matter how small, have the power to change lives.

Gift in Memoriam

A memorial donation to Bedford is a thoughtful way to remember someone special. This tribute lives on to continue helping people with disability now and in the future.

Families may request that a donation to Bedford is made in lieu of flowers and we can provide in memoriam envelopes to the funeral home conducting the service.

To assist you to donate in memoriam we just need a little more information:

  • Your name and address (so we can provide a tax receipt)
  • The name of the person who has passed away
  • The name and address of the next-of-kin so that we can inform them of your kind gift – the financial amount will be kept confidential

If you wish to donate in memoriam please call us on 1300 300 023 and we can help you over the phone. You can also download the donation form below (just click on the link) and post it back to us:

Melrose Park, SA 5041

If you would like in memoriam envelopes at the funeral, please ask your funeral director to contact us on 1300 300 023 or email to arrange for them to be sent.

You may also include details of these arrangements in the funeral notice, so that people attending the service know your wishes.
