A heartfelt gift, bequests create a better future. Let your legacy live on
Gifts in Wills & Planned Giving
Be a part of Sydney Eisteddfod’s future and future generations of young artists.
By planning a gift in your will (or bequest) you can continue to support what was important to you in life well into the future. A bequest is a heartfelt gift to create a better future and have your legacy live on.
A bequest would play an important role in the ongoing success of Sydney Eisteddfod and create life-changing opportunities in the arts for generations to come. Your generosity and vision will support the future development of young artists and bring the joy of performance to both audiences and young artists alike. We would be honoured to be entrusted with your legacy.
Current donors to prizes and scholarships may like to see them continue in perpetuity through a gift in their will.
At Sydney Eisteddfod, all bequests are carefully invested and managed by our Investment Committee to preserve and grow the capital whilst still realising the purpose of the gift for years to come.
All gifts are greatly appreciated and assist us in achieving our mission. If you have or are intending to leave a bequest, please let us know. We value your commitment and would like to thank you personally and invite you to be a part of our Donor Circle. We also know that a bequest is a very personal decision and we will always respect your privacy.

We have included some information below to assist you if you choose to make Sydney Eisteddfod a beneficiary of your will however, we strongly encourage you to seek legal or financial advice. This will ensure the type of bequest you choose suits your circumstances and your wishes are protected.

1. Most common types of Bequests
Residual or percentage bequest: A percentage of the remainder of your estate after all debts and charges (and in the case of a residual bequest, any other gifts) have been deducted. This type of bequest maintains its relative value and automatically adjusts to the value of your estate.
Pecuniary bequest: A fixed amount of money gifted from your estate.
Specific bequest/Gift in Kind: If you would like to leave a gift in your will to a specific area or leave a Gift in Kind please have an in confidence discussion with our Philanthropy Manager prior so we can ensure Sydney Eisteddfod will be able to fulfil your wishes in the future.
