Including a bequest in your Will for artists in the Blue Mountains

However large or small, your special gift to us via a bequest in your Will to Blue Mountains Artists Network will make a difference to the careers of artists in the Blue Mountains. It will allow us to focus resources to develop the careers of many artists in the Blue Mountains by providing education on how to promote themsleves, exposure to potential purchasers, learning about working with gallery owners, and being more professional about their business practices.

Your generous bequest will be directed (unless specified) to the most appropriate areas of artist development that requires funding.

How to leave a bequest to help the arts community improve itself.

We understand that family and your loved ones will always come first when you create or update your Will. After this you may like to consider leaving a special gift to Blue Mountains Artists Network as a lasting legacy.

Blue Mountains Artists Network recommends you see legal advice when preparing or revising your Will. It is a legal document that allows you to advise how you would like your assets distributed.
