Leaving a Lasting Legacy
Whilst Seton Villa is primarily funded through the NDIS and the Commonwealth Department of Health, we rely heavily on donations and gifts in Wills from you, to ensure we can provide the highest quality of lifestyle and care for the women we support.
A gift in your Will is a lasting legacy that you and/or your loved ones can leave for Seton Villa. When you choose to leave a gift to Seton Villa, your generosity reaches far and wide, transforming and shaping bright futures for deserving members of our community. With your generosity, we will ensure the best possible quality of life for all the women who will call Seton Villa home now and into the future. Every amount, no matter its size, will help us provide hope for people with disability, and their families, for years to come.
On behalf of the Seton Villa community, we thank you for considering leaving such a meaningful and lasting gift in your Will.
If you would like to discuss leaving a gift to Seton Villa or if you have any questions, our CEO is available on (02) 9888 5244 or CEO@setonvilla.org.au and would be keen to hear from you.
If you have already included Seton Villa in your Will, please let us know via the same email: CEO@setonvilla.org.au We would like to show our appreciation to you. Any information you provide will be treated in the strictest confidence.
“I think Seton Villa has done a marvelous job. Basically, they’ve focused on women with intellectual disability and provided them with life choices and the opportunities that they’ve had, and they still have. They go tap dancing, sailing, bowling, they love live theatre and going out for dinner. They like to go to the club on a Saturday night and have dinner and go dancing afterwards. That’s really cool to see.” – Karen, Community Support Worker
“When my daughter Carmel opened the door to her new place, she couldn’t quite believe it was hers”. “I’ve got my own home!” she said. “Everything has been built to meet the NDIS SDA Improved Livability design standards, with real consideration for people with sensory, cognitive or intellectual impairment. Put it this way – my girls don’t have to get used to the home, it is already purpose-built and designed around them. They are both so happy!” – Glenys, mother of Melissa and Carmel (seen below with the key to their new home)
