How we help

Our mission is to promote local giving by raising and distributing funds to organisations that provide health, wellbeing, education, recreation and support services. The Whitehorse Community Chest raises funds throughout the year and then allocates them on an annual basis via our annual grants program.

Making a Bequest to The Chest

Leaving a gift in your Will to the Whitehorse Community Chest is an opportunity to leave a lasting legacy.

The Whitehorse Community Chest Fund has been established so earnings on the principal are distributed annually to those organisations that support the disadvantaged in our community.

Leaving a bequest to The Chest is easy, but it is important to consult with your lawyer and ask for appropriate clauses to be inserted into your will and/or memorandum of wishes. We have set out below some sample clauses used previously, which may be useful to you and your lawyer.  To receive a bequest brochure with further information please contact our office on 9285 4890.
