Endowments, bequests and memorials are each ways to leave a lump sum in a Will. This enables you to continue donating to great local Noosa region charities even after you or a loved one has passed on.


A Memorial is a sum you donate in the name of a loved one who has passed on.  The lump sum of money is preserved.  Then the income from it is merged with other donations. These are given to Noosa charities serving the community needs close to your loved one’s heart.

Any such donations over $10,000 can be remembered with an on-line biography of your loved one if desired. 

Presently, we do not have any Memorials. But our colleagues at the Buderim Foundation, and the family, have kindly given permission to use the Memorial to Harold Whittle as an example.

To start a discussion on how best to remember your loved one, email us on reception@noosa.foundation outlining your wishes.

Endowments & Bequests

A Bequest is a gift made through a Will.  An Endowment is a sum (usually in the form of a bequest) that is invested so that the capital sum is not spent, but it generates an annual income stream. 

This income is merged with donations from other sources and given to Noosa charities. These charities are chosen to  serve the community needs close to your’s or your loved one’s heart.

Very often, you will have your professional advisors (accountants, lawyers and philanthropic advisors) set these up for you.  To help with this, we have resources available to assist your advisors to implement your wish to help Noosa charities for many years to come.

For more information on how to construct a bequest to the Foundation, contact us yourself or ask your advisors to reach out to us at reception@noosa.foundation
