Thank you for thinking of Blue Knot Foundation. Here are some thoughts as to how you might remember us in your Will.
It is possible to give almost any kind of asset through a bequest, including a specific sum of money, a particular asset (including securities, property and tangible assets), a percentage of your total estate, or a percentage of the residue of your estate.
Below is a sample guide providing wording for your Will should you decide to make a bequest (please discuss this with your legal advisor).
"I __________________ give, devise and bequeath unto Blue Knot Foundation (ABN 49 072 260 005) for its general purposes free of all duties, the following: (whichever is applicable)
- The sum of $_________
- ______________% of my estate or the residue of my estate
- Life Insurance Policy number_________________________
- Property (details)_________________________________________
- Other (details)_________________________________________
and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or other Proper Officer of Blue Knot Foundation for the time being thereof shall be sufficient discharge to my [Executor/Trustee] for the bequest."
You should always consult with your lawyer before making your Will or codicil.
