A not-for-profit society FHWA relies on donations as an important contribution to its funds.

There are three ways you can support FHWA with a donation:   

  • A cash donation at any time as part of your membership subscriptions, or when you register for an event;
  • A tax-deductible donation can also be made to the FHWA Library Fund; or
  • With a bequest included in your Will.

Library Fund donations
Donations to the Library Fund are tax deductible and are put towards the purchase of items for the FHWA library to continually improve the resources available to members and include books, serials, maps and CDs. Library Fund donations can also be directed to ongoing Society projects: 11th Battalion, 100 Year Cheops Photo and Unwanted Certificates.

Bequests
The Society welcomes bequests that can be in the form of: gifts of cash, the whole or percentage of an estate, real estate or stocks and shares. A donor may wish funds to be directed to a specific area or activity of the Society or wish their bequest to be used at the Society’s Management Committee’s discretion.
The Society recommends that bequest donors seek professional advice in arranging a bequest. Suggested wording for a bequest to the Society can include the following:


I bequeath [the whole/a percentage/something specific/residue] of my estate to the Western Australian Genealogical Society Incorporated for purposes that it shall determine, and this bequest will be free from all duties. The receipt of this bequest by any authorised officer of the Western Australian Genealogical Society Incorporated shall form valid discharge to my executor.For more information please contact the FHWA Secretary.
