Leaving a gift in your will/Bequests

Gifts in Wills

A gift in your Will is a simple and powerful way to provide ongoing support to the causes you are passionate about.

 
Types of gifts

There are many ways you can leave a gift in your Will. A solicitor or other qualified professional can help you make the choice that’s right for you. Some options include:

 
Residuary bequest

A gift of whatever is left of your estate (or a percentage thereof) after you have made gifts to family and friends. As it is not a specific amount of money, it keeps its value regardless of inflation.

 

Pecuniary bequest

This is a gift of a set dollar amount determined by you at the time of making or changing your Will.

 

Specific bequest

A gift of a specific item, such as property or shares.

 
Suggested wording:

I give ______ percent of the residue of my estate to Little Oak Sanctuary Incorporated of GPO Box 2116 CANBERRA ACT 2601 for its general purposes and the receipt of the Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary or the Public Officer for the time being will be an absolute discharge to my executor.
