Leave a Gift in your Will
You don’t have to be wealthy to include a gift in your Will. It is a powerful reflection of the values and principles you treasure. Bequests are a wonderful way of making a positive statement about what you believe in.
Since 2010, Miners’ Promise has played a significant and meaningful part in the lives of many in the resources sector faced with crisis. Your support ensures the ongoing viability of Miners’ Promise, so that future generations of hard-working resources sector employees can continue to receive our bespoke care and assistance.
Including a gift for us in your Will, no matter the size, will make a real difference.
Estate Planning Is For Everyone
A Will gives you the opportunity to direct how your estate, whatever the size, is to be divided amongst those who are dear to you. If you do not have a current Will, the state may decide in accordance with state law who benefits from your estate and the result may be very different from what you had wished.
Creating a Will is not expensive, but failing to make a Will can become a costly affair for your potential beneficiaries. Having a legal Will therefore avoids problems and extra expenses for your loved ones at a challenging time.
Sometimes people feel they have nothing to give or do not have the means to contribute during their lifetime. You can, however, plan for the future by leaving a bequest through the distribution of your assets, regardless of your age or financial situation.
If you have already written your Will and do not wish to make major changes, you can add a codicil (an amendment to an existing Will) to include Miners’ Promise. Your solicitor can help you with any changes. We advise you to contact your financial or legal adviser as early as possible to discuss your intentions before leaving a bequest.

The Difference Your Generous Gift Makes
When I was diagnosed with Lung Cancer, Miners’ Promise provided me with incredible support unique to my needs. They took the time to explore and plan with me what the road from diagnosis to recovery would look like and how they could best assist me.
Their practical support was invaluable, and I will forever treasure their emotional support. They have been there for me throughout my entire recovery and I urge everyone to support Miners’ Promise. The support they offer is second to none, invaluable and irreplaceable.
The Late Daniel Burvill
Our son Daniel took his own life 17 days before his 22nd birthday. When we contacted Miners’ Promise, we had raw emotions, confusion, sadness and we were in the unknown. Within a day, Miners’ Promise came into our home, our life and our family. Words cannot describe the days of just blur. I cannot express enough the intimate, connected support and services Miners’ Promise brought to our family.
Being there for direction and providing us with a path to follow and with emotional support, counselling, financial assistance and helping us with the processes required with the death of a loved one. Our family will recover from the tragic changes to our lives. We will push forward the amazing empowerment from having Miners’ Promise with us in the most devastating time and get through to find a future with our families.
