Leaving a Gift in Your Will
With a gift to Charlies Foundation for Research in your will, you’re leaving a lasting, life-saving legacy, supporting pioneering medical research that will transform the lives of patients and their families into the future. It may even make a vital difference in the treatment of your loved ones.
Why make a will?
In essence, a will is a legal document outlining how to distribute your assets and estate after your death. But in reality, a will does a lot more.
At a time of emotional stress, your will provides your loved ones with a clear understanding of your wishes, thereby avoiding unnecessary uncertainty and even conflict.
How to leave a gift in your will
To ensure your gift is recorded correctly in your will, we recommend engaging a solicitor. Here’s an example of suitable wording for a gift to Charlies Foundation for Research:
I Give and Bequeath to the Charlies Foundation for Research Ltd., free of all duties, the sum of $ ____________ and/or __% of my Estate and/or Life Insurance (Policy Number _______) and/or the property situated at ________________________ and/or my Residuary Estate for which the receipt of the Treasurer or other authorised Officer shall be sufficient discharge.
If you’d like to discuss leaving a gift to the Foundation, please contact Charlies Foundation for Research Executive Director Vicki Rasmussen on (08) 6457 6317.
