(b) MAKING A BEQUEST

You can contribute to the good work of EERN and help support the needy of our community by making a bequest to EERN in your Will. Bequests play a special part in the life of organisations such as the Eastern Emergency Relief Network Inc. (EERN). They provide funds that enable EERN to carry out its core objective of assisting the needy of the Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne by distributing furniture, household goods & food parcels to them through member agencies.

A bequest to the Eastern Emergency Relief Network Inc guarantees that your values, ideals, & generosity in assisting the needy of our community will continue to live on long after you are able to express them personally.

How to include a Bequest in your Will?

If you are planning to remember Eastern Emergency Relief Network Inc in your Will, it is important that you use our full, legally incorporated name (Eastern Emergency Relief Network Inc.).

We recommend that the following wording be used to express your intentions:

“I give to Eastern Emergency Relief Network Inc. (EERN) of Factory 1 / 10 – 12 Thornton Crescent, Mitcham Vic. 3132 –

for its general purposes free of all duties & taxes payable upon or in consequence of my death, and I declare that the receipt of the President or Secretary of EERN or other authorized officer will be sufficient discharge to my executors who will not be bound to see the application of this gift.
