Your heart for justice can be a gift to those experiencing injustice beyond your lifetime.
By leaving a gift in your Will to Common Grace you will help equip the next generation to follow Jesus and pursue justice so that all people and creation experience the goodness that God intends.
Leaving a gift in your Will can be an incredibly simple way to know that what matters to you now can live on. After providing for your loved ones, leaving a small percentage of what is remaining, is a great way to help fight the wrongs of injustice well into the future. Your caring gift will ensure that the church is mobilised to work together to do justice and pursue the flourishing of all people and all creation.

Types of gifts
There are different ways you can support the work of Common Grace through your Will, and below are some suggestions to consider. Most people leave a Residual gift as it ensures that your closest loved ones are cared for first.
- Residual: is the remainder of your estate after considering your loved ones and expenses have been deducted.
- Percentage gift: a percentage of either the residue or the entire estate such as 10% of estate.
- Pecuniary: is a gift of a specific amount, such as $10,000.
It is important that your bequest gift is worded correctly. The following is recommended as a guide only, but please seek legal advice regarding your specific circumstances before making your Will or changing your existing Will.
“I (insert full name) bequeath to Christians for Justice Ltd (ACN: 601 218 991) trading as Common Grace (ABN: 79 601 218 991) for its general purposes
[Choose and insert the appropriate statement from the suggested options below]

- The sum of $___
for which the receipt of the Treasurer or other authorised officer shall be a complete and sufficient discharge for the Executor(s).”
Thank you for pursing Jesus and justice to let justice roll down for future generations.
