Help fund the operations of Cabarita Beach SLSC Inc.

Did you know that the operations of the club cost hundreds of thousands of dollars every year?
This covers equipment replacement, training, uniforms, and the costs of administering a large organisation and building maintenance.
You can make a specific bequest if you wish to directly support lifesaving, competition, training, junior activities, or prizes/ awards. You can ensure that the funds are then applied directly to the area you want. If interested in this, please contact treasurer@cabaslsc.org.au to discuss options.

How do I leave a gift in my Will?

Leaving a gift in your Will is a big decision and we suggest that this is something that you’re best to discuss and arrange with your Solicitor or Estate planner. If you don’t currently have a Will, a Solicitor can help you to draft one to ensure that your wishes are reflected.

Making a Will need not be complicated. In many cases it is very straightforward. Before preparing your Will, it’s important to ensure that you have thought about your wishes so that assets and a lifetime of hard work are directed to people and organisations that reflect your values and that are important to you.

Your Will doesn’t need to be complicated. It should simply reflect your wishes, what you want to be remembered for, and what’s important to you. In making a Will, the most important people you should consider first are your loved ones.

Once you have provided appropriately for them, consider making a gift to Cabarita Beach SLSC Inc. as well.
