#Leave a gift in your will

Friends of the future

If you’ve enjoyed and supported the arts throughout your life you can ensure your passion will continue beyond your lifetime and benefit future generations. After you have made provision for your family and friends, you may consider including HOTA as a beneficiary in your Will. 

A residuary bequest is the residue of your estate after all debts, charges and other bequests have been deducted. This form of gift maintains its relative value over a period of time. You can choose to give:

  • A percentage of your estate after family has been provided for
  • A specific bequest of money (dollar amount)
  • A specific bequest of property, shares, Jewellery, etc.
  • A specific gift of artwork that falls within the City Gallery Collection Policy

One way of ensuring your gift will bring the most benefit is to leave a leave a gift in your will which can be used at the discretion of HOTA. However, if you would like your gift to benefit a specific area we’d be happy to discuss this with you.
