How to leave a gift in your Will
Having a valid Will is the only way to be sure that your wishes will be met. When creating your Will, firstly provide for family and friends, and then consider whether you can also include a gift to The Brain Cancer Group.
Your gift can take a variety of forms:
Residuary – the remainder of an estate after specific gifts have been disbursed
Percentage – a percentage of either the residue or the entire estate
Pecuniary – a specific gift of cash
A specific asset – real estate, shares, bonds or other particular items of value
Residuary and Percentage are the most beneficial forms of bequest as they hold their value over time.
Simply give the following wording to your Solicitor to include in your Will or as a Codicil to your Will once you have decided what kind of gift you would like to include:
“I bequeath to The Brain Cancer Group, ABN39 094 873 211, to promote and support brain cancer research, (the residue of my estate) or the sum of (a specified sum), or my (specified items), free of all duties and taxes including, if any CGT, and the receipt of the Secretary or other authorised officer for the time being shall be a complete and sufficient discharge for the executor(s).”
We understand that making a Will is a very personal decision, however if you are considering or have already remembered the The Brain Cancer Group in your Will, we would welcome the opportunity of thanking you personally. It also enables us to keep you up to date with our research and send you invitations to special The Brain Cancer Group events.
