Leave a gift in your Will

Your contribution will make a huge difference and it will go on making a difference long into the future.

Meet Geoff

Geoff is a retired orthopaedic surgeon who has supported CBA for more than 25 years. Listen to his story in the video.

A sociologist surveyed men and women who had lived for over 90 years. He asked, “If you had it all over again, what would you do differently?" The responses were clear:


“We would reflect more, risk more and do more that would live on after we’re gone."

We ask you to take time to reflect, perhaps do something out-of-the-ordinary, and prayerfully consider leaving a gift that will reach people with God’s Good News long after you’re gone.

Giving by bequest - 
the family comes first

When drawing up your Will, we encourage you to think of your family first.  Speak with your family about your plans so they understand why you’re choosing  to remember CBA in your Will.


We also recommend that you seek professional advice and speak with your lawyer about preparing or altering your Will. There are a numbers of ways to remember CBA in your Will:

  • a specific dollar amount

  • a specific % of your estate

  • a specific gift, asset, or property

  • the residue of your estate

How much should I leave?

We would encourage you to give as you feel you can, we receive gifts small and large. It’s easy to add a paragraph to your existing Will. A suggestion for the wording can be found below.


If you don’t have a Will, see a solicitor or the Public Trust. It will make the distribution of your estate much easier and give you peace of mind.
