BaptistCare fully appreciates the special role that members of the legal profession play in facilitating charitable bequests. Thank You.
All donations and bequests of a general nature made to BaptistCare are administered by the BCS Foundation.
The BCS Foundation was established in June 1995 to celebrate and mark the jubilee of the incorporation of BCS.
The BCS Foundation accepts donations, bequests and other benefits from the public. The funds are invested in accordance with the provisions of the Trustee Act of NSW. The ‘Trustees for BCS Foundation’ is a charitable fund and is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) with donations (but not testamentary gifts such as bequests) of $2 and over being tax deductible.
The Trustees of BCS Foundation comprise three directors of BaptistCare and four independent Trustees. All bequests to the BCS Foundation are invested and income generated by these investments are provided to BaptistCare Programs as the Trustees of the Foundation determine from time to time.
