Make a Bequest

A bequest to the Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture Inc. (Foundation House) is a meaningful way to make a lasting contribution to the work we do with people from refugee and asylum-seeking backgrounds.

A bequest to Foundation House could be a specific amount of money, a proportion of your Estate, the residual of your Estate, or other specific property.

Bequests are managed by our Finance Department. If you wish to make a bequest to Foundation House, or to honour or commemorate a named individual, we are available for a confidential discussion and to provide assistance. Please email Finance or phone (03) 9389 8900.
