Bequests to Keeping Watch

Making a Bequest to Keeping Watch

To carry out its vital work, Keeping Watch relies on the financial support of the naval family and the broader Australian community and bequests make up an important part of these contributions. After carefully considering your family and friends in your Will, making a bequest to Keeping Watch ensures that you will leave a lasting legacy, which will continue to make a difference to Navy families in need well into the future.

Thank you for your invaluable support of Keeping Watch.

    When there was an unfortunate circumstance that resulted in financial hardship for a family member, Keeping Watch was eager to help out as much as possible. My divisional staff were more than accommodating to ensure that I understood the process, and between them and the Keeping Watch team I was constantly reassured that the help my family desperately needed at the time was being organised. Keeping Watch is the light at the end of the tunnel, you just need to reach out and ask for the help.

    I cannot thank Keeping Watch for helping us in our time of need. We were struggling with living expenses after a death in the family and I found out about Keeping Watch. I'm so glad I conatcted them to see how they could help. They were amazing throughout and the money could not have come at a better time. We are now moving forward positively and looking to the future. Thank you so much.

    I would highly recommend Keeping Watch if you need financial help and are a Navy family. We experienced an unexpected family crisis and we were struggling to meet daily living expenses and child care costs. Keeping Watch helped us through this difficult situation with a grant and offered some very valuable advise on how to deal with the loss. If you need help, contact Keeping Watch.
