Your legacy to The Speech & Stuttering Institute will help transform lives for lasting change!

Did you know that you can plan your legacy to include a gift to The Speech & Stuttering Institute?

Why leave a bequest to SSI?

  • Gifts by bequest in your Will* or designating The Speech & Stuttering Institute in your Life Insurance* allows you to make a larger donation than may be possible during your lifetime
  • Charitable giving through your estate can help you to minimize the taxes that will ultimately have to be paid
  • Is a powerful way to show your support for the valuable work being done at the Institute and helping so many people find their voice
  • When you inform us of your intention, we would be pleased to recognise your generosity and ensure that you receive appropriate recognition (including the option of remaining anonymous)

How do you make a legacy gift to SSI?

If you are drafting your first will or want to make any changes to your existing will, your lawyer can include a bequest to a charity like The Speech & Stuttering Institute. If your current will meets your needs, but you want to add a bequest to The Speech & Stuttering Institute your lawyer may recommend adding a codicil to your will.
