A) Donate in your will

By including AWARE in your will, you offer a gift of hope to future generations and help to enable women to lead safe, happy and fulfilling lives.

How you can leave a bequest to AWARE

After making provision for those you love, here are some options if you decide to leave a bequest to AWARE:

  • Specific bequest – a nominated amount of money or a specific gift such as artwork, property, stocks or shares.
  • Residual bequest – the remainder of your estate after family and friends have been provided for.
  • Percentage bequest – a nominated percentage of your estate.

If you wish to leave a bequest to AWARE in your will, you may like to use the following wording. However, we encourage you to first seek legal advice before making or changing your will.

Suggested wording for leaving a bequest to AWARE:

I give, devise and bequest to the Association of Women for Action & Research (UEN S85SS0089B)

  • The rest and residue of my Estate or
  • _____________ percent of my Estate or
  • _____________ percent of the residue of my Estate or
  • The sum of $ ________________________________ or
  • The property known as ________________________________

free of all duties and testamentary expenses for its general purposes and I direct that the receipt of that organization shall be sufficient discharge to my executors for this bequest.



A donor can also nominate AWARE as a beneficiary of their CPF savings. A CPF nomination is a legal document where a person states how they want their CPF savings to be distributed in the event of their death.

CPF nomination forms can be obtained from any of the CPF regional offices. The donor in the presence of two adult witnesses must sign the nomination.

By nominating AWARE as a beneficiary of your CPF savings, you can make a positive difference to the lives of all those who are supported by AWARE.

On behalf of the women and families you’re supporting, thank you.
