Wills and Bequests
At the core of estate planning is a person’s will. Writing a will and including a gift to NeuroEndocrine Cancer Australia (a bequest) is a generous and empowering act. By doing so, loved ones are provided for, but a legacy is left that will make a real and enduring difference to Australians living with Neuroendocrine Cancers.
A bequest to NeuroEndocrine Cancer Australia will be used to support our mission to support and care for patients, carers and families and greater access to treatments and help us achieve our vision to find a cure for Neuroendocrine Cancers.
Another way of leaving a lasting gift is to set up a Charitable Trust in the family name. The capital of the estate is invested and the annual interest is used by NeuroEndocrine Cancer Australia to fund patient support and research programs. As well as having tax advantages, your gift will live on in perpetuity.
Should you wish to write your will online at no charge, click here to and you’ll be taken through the process step by step.
You may choose to make a general bequest/ donation and allow NeuroEndocrine Cancer Australia to decide how your bequest will be used, or you may prefer to make that decision yourself e.g. direct your generous gift to patient support or research.
Your legal adviser can provide further information on the different types of bequests, and on the appropriate wording for a bequest.
As a guide, the following wording may be useful:
I LEAVE AND BEQUEATH to NEUROENDOCRINE CANCER AUSTRALIA a duly registered charitable organisation and deductible gift recipient incorporated in the State of New South Wales (ABN:63893929894) the sum of (amount in word and figures) to be used in accordance with the aims and purposes as established by the said Foundation and I DECLARE that the receipt of this bequest by the Chief Executive Officer for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my Executor(s) and he/she/they shall not be bound to see the application thereof.
