Make every breath count by leaving

a gift in your Will to CFCC

The Rose Society

A bequest society for CFCC was initially founded by the late Mr Walter Riddell OAM and his late wife Carmel Riddell, who had three children with CF in the 1970’s. The newly created Rose Society has taken the Riddell’s dream one step further and enables those who are interested in supporting CFCC by way of a gift a pathway to do so.

The Rose Society has also been formed to acknowledge the generosity of those who make a gift in their Will to CFCC.  We want to honor and show our appreciation to  those special people in their lifetime.Joining The Rose Society means more than just showing your support for people living with CF, it means becoming a part of something big, something meaningful.  You will also receive regular updates on the important work CFCC is doing, and be invited to attend special Rose Society ‘members only’ events.  By including a gift in your will to CFCC you are ensuring that every breath counts for children land adults living with CF

What is a bequest?

A bequest is a gift left by an individual in their Will. It can take the form of cash, shares, property or other assets.

How can a bequest help Cystic Fibrosis Victoria?

Your Will is one of the most important documents you will prepare as it ensures that the people and organisations that you care for are provided for after your death.

When preparing your Will, it is your immediate family that is the priority when dividing up your estate. After providing for your family, a bequest to Cystic Fibrosis Victoria is a special way of helping to build better futures to their living with cystic fibrosis in Victoria and can be a memorial to your concern for others.

Your bequest can assist us to fund research, purchase vital physiotherapy and exercise equipment and deliver services such as counselling, practical support and financial assistance.  

How to make a Bequest

We recommend that your Will be prepared by your solicitor, trustee company or the Public Trustee. You can choose one of four preferred wordings for your bequest:

In making such a bequest I declare a general charitable intention. The receipt of the Associations secretary or other proper officer shall be a sufficient discharge to my trustees.

I GIVE to Cystic Fibrosis Victoria (its successors or assigns) the residue of my estate to be used for its general purposes. In making such a bequest I declare a general charitable intention. The receipt of the Associations secretary or other proper officer shall be a sufficient discharge to my trustees.
