Bequests

A bequest is a gift that you leave in your Will to a person, organisation or charity like “The Paraplegic and Quadriplegic Association of NSW” known as ParaQuad NSW.

ParaQuad NSW is endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as an income tax exempt charitable entity and a deductible gift recipient.
