A vital way in which the future of Campion College will be secured is by the gift of a bequest.
Australian Catholics have a long tradition of supporting the development of Catholic institutions – churches, schools, hospitals, seminaries, and so on. In a new millennium, the need is great to carry on this tradition for future generations.
The Catholic people cherish a transcendent faith that turns our eyes to eternity. It sharpens our sense of communion with those who have gone before and those who will come after.
It is fitting that this combined spirit – of both material and spiritual continuity – seeks expression in acts of permanent thanksgiving. Our prayers are the primary acts of our being, but we also show thanksgiving by the thoughtful disposition of any material goods gathered whilst on earth.
We may be especially conscious of our children's or grandchildren's future, and one way of fostering the faith of generations to come is through support, in spiritual and material terms, of Campion College Australia.
Ways of Helping
There are a number of ways in which the College can be helped through a bequest to the Campion Foundation. For example:
- You can give a specific amount of money or an item such as shares, property, paintings, jewellery, your car, or other items of value.
- You can donate a percentage of your Estate – for example, 50%, 20%, 10%. This ensures your family and friends are not disadvantaged by changes in the size of your Estate or by inflation.
- After providing for family and friends, you may decide to leave the residue of your Estate to the Foundation for the development of Campion College.
To ensure that your exact intentions are made clear, it is desirable that your Will be prepared in consultation with a solicitor.
Bequests to the Campion Foundation are tax-exempt.
Opportunities for Giving
‘I wish to make a bequest to the Campion Foundation for the development of Campion College Australia.’
A bequest may express a particular wish as to how the gift is to be used – for example, to help the College Library to acquire important books and other resources, or to support the Campion Scholarship Fund for needy students.
For further information, or to discuss in confidence any bequest possibility, please contact Mr Karl Schmude, Executive Director, Campion Foundation.
