LEAVING A BEQUEST IN YOUR WILL
Leaving us a gift can be relatively straightforward. Here are some guidelines on words to include in your Will, but we recommend discussing a bequest with a qualified professional such as a Will writer or solicitor:
“I give the sum of (amount in figures or words) to the Actors Benevolent Fund of NSW, 245 Chalmers Street, Redfern NSW 2016 (Registered under the Charitable Fundraising Act: Authority CFN 12749). For its general charitable purposes. I further direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or other authorised Officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my executors."
OTHER WAYS TO DONATE:
OPENING NIGHT DONATION
The first performance of a theatrical production is a very special time and what better way to celebrate opening night than by supporting the charity that helps members of the theatre community bounce back from adversity?
A gift to The ABF on opening night is a great way to acknowledge your Company or someone whose work has helped to get you there.
To ensure that your greeting makes it to the theatre in time, please submit your opening night donation at least one business day before opening night.
