We offer our Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander community members from Melbourne and wider Victoria the unique opportunity to share their experiences, concerns, perspectives and information with the wider community and neighbours over the 3KND radio Airwaves and Internet. Through supporting 3KND, you can help us train indigenous radio broadcasters, musicians and other positions in the Media industry.
3KND has always contributed to and supported advances in Indigenous media. We are committed to providing specialist training in radio & media broadcasting to Indigenous community members. The media services available at 3KND Radio are broad including; both AM and digital services, online streaming, multimedia media training, studio recording hire, music production and of course advertising.
If you like or appreciate 3KND’s work, consider leaving 3KND a bequest in your will. Your legacy will help ensure 3KND can continue to give the Victorian Aboriginal Community a Voice. Our radio station is extremely proud of the achievements to date; in fostering developing the many talented Indigenous community volunteer broadcasters. The 3KND Broadcasters continue to produce interesting, relevant and deadly radio programs for our listening audience.
Why does 3KND need my bequest?
The government gives financial support 3KND for operations. However, a large part of the budget of maintaining the organisation comes from the people who appreciate the service we provide all day every day. Without this support the station would eventually cease to exist.
If I decide to leave a bequest to 3KND, what form should it take?
All bequests are appreciated equally. There are several options for bequests:
1. Specific Gift: This specifies an amount of money or property or some other asset.
2. Percentage or Fractional Bequest: This specifies that a percentage or fraction of the total value of your estate be willed to 3KND.
3. Residual Bequest: This wills to 3KND the remainder of your estate after all expenses have been met and all other beneficiaries have received their inheritances.
4. Whole Estate: This wills the value of your entire estate to 3KND.
What wording should I use in my will?
You should consult your solicitor or professional advisor. However, we recommend the following wording:
“I bequeath to the First Australian Media Enterprises, ABN: 88 969 013 001 of 35 Copernicus Cres, Bundoora, Victoria for its general purposes (the whole) or (a specific amount or gift) or (a percentage) or (the residue) of my estate free of all duties for which a receipt from the Chief Executive Office or other authorised person shall be a full discharge to my executor.”
May I nominate how my bequest is to be used?
Yes, you may, but it is preferred that you delegate this responsibility to the Board of Directors, who are all dedicated volunteers and are aware of the station’s needs and priorities which can change with the passage of time.
How do I change my will to nominate 3KND as a beneficiary?
An amendment, known as a codicil, can be made easily by your solicitor for a small fee.
Will my bequest be recognised if I so choose?
Unless you choose to remain anonymous, your bequest will be recognized on the 3KND Honour Board located in the foyer of the station.
If I have other questions, whom do I contact?
Please contact Gerry Lyons, Station Manager of 3KND, during office hours on 03 94711305 for advice on a confidential basis.
Thank you for supporting 3KND with a bequest. We are pleased that you share our belief in the important role Indigenous Media plays in the Victorian Community.
