Make a Bequest

A bequest is a very real way to make a positive difference in the lives of children, youth and adults with a disability in the Loddon-Mallee region.

Why we need your support
Interchange LMR Inc. benefits from the support of the community to continue it’s programs. A portion of Interchange LMR’s funding comes from community donations, fundraising, grants and bequests. With your support, the care provided for up to 300 families within the Loddon Mallee region per year would be optimised.

Remembering Interchange Loddon-Mallee Region in your Will
A bequest to Interchange LMR makes lasting positive change. It is a powerful reflection of the values and principles that are important to you. Your gift to Interchange will provide people with a disability living in the Loddon Mallee region, and their families the possibility of reaching their full potential and achieve their goals and aspirations.

Have you made a Will?
If you pass away without leaving a Will, you have no control over what happens to your estate. The people you really wanted to benefit may get less than you intended, or nothing at all.
When making a Will, we encourage you to share this important decision with your family and friends.
While you are deciding where your money will go, we hope you consider leaving a gift to Interchange LMR. As a registered charity, we benefit greatly from support of the public to provide our services at minimal cost to our participants. Legacies are an extremely important source of funds that enable hundreds of people living in the Loddon-Mallee region to feel connected within their community, enjoy quality care and receive support to achieve their goals and increase their independence.
Interchange LMR is endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as an income exempt charitable entity and a deductible gift recipient. Contact us on 03 5441 1599 or via email, info@interchangelm.org.au for more information.

Someone will never forget you
By making a gift to Interchange LMR in your Will - you can really make a difference. You are helping us to provide a range of services to improve the quality of life and independence of people living with a disability in the Loddon-Mallee Region. The programs offered by Interchange LMR are a significant part of this process. You may never meet the person whose life your kindness has changed, but they will never forget you.

What difference will your Donation make?
Interchange LMR supports people with disabilities, their families and the community by facilitating with choice, respect and dignity their chosen support options to reach their full potential.
Interchange LMR is a not for profit, non-government incorporated association with Tax Deductible status and is partly funded by the State and Federal governments.
Bequests allow Interchange LMR to provide ongoing programs to encourage and facilitate people living with disabilities to enjoy community access, increased independence, social and life skills and building their confidence in order to achieve their goals.

Have you told us of your intentions to leave a bequest?
If you are considering leaving a gift in your Will to Interchange LMR, please let us know. By notifying us of your plans, we are able to discuss how your gift might be used to maximum benefit, forming a fitting memorial to your kindness.
All bequests remain strictly confidential unless express permission is given to mention the planned gift (please contact Interchange LMR CEO on 03 5441 1599).
