Why leave a Forever JOY gift in your Will?

What better gift can we give future generations of the same sex attracted community than a voice that aims to break down isolation and celebrates our achievements.

The need to provide a voice for Australia’s diverse gay and lesbian community is as important as ever as we face the challenge of legislation that actively discriminates against same sex attracted individuals.

Your bequest will provide ongoing funding for JOY 94.9 to create a vibrant station that serves our community for future generations.

How your Forever JOY bequest makes a difference:

Your bequest to JOY 94.9 will contribute to the development of the station ensuring we can always offer a range of on air programs and training initiatives. Below are just two examples of initiatives that can benefit from bequests:

Youth Training Programs

JOY’s successful partnership with the Foundation for Young Australian’s has established the basis of a broadcast training program for same sex attracted youth. Bequest funding will allow this successful project to become an integral part of the stations activities.

On Air Program Content

Bequest funding will allow us always to continue and expand our free Community Service Announcements for organisations that support our community and help provide the resources required to continue to broadcast community specific focus weeks.

Forever JOY – Bequest wording

Please pass the following wording onto your solicitor to assist you in preparing your Will:
