Why not forever? The power of a bequest.
A bequest is a gift in one’s Will that is left to a specific beneficiary. Creating a Will ensures that your wishes are respected and that those you ultimately want to benefit will receive your support.
Should you prefer that your gift be directed to a specific program, activity or aspect of our operations, we will be delighted to speak to you.
Bequests can be left unencumbered to be used by NIDA as deemed appropriate by the NIDA Foundation Trust Directors.
The following clause is intended as a guide only for consideration and may assist your legal advisor in the preparation of your Will.
“I give to the NIDA Foundation Trust ABN 19 508 938 522 (Specific amount or percentage of estate or describe property or other assets) for use and benefit of NIDA for its general purposes and I direct that a receipt from the NIDA Foundation Trust shall be sufficient discharge of such a gift.”
You should speak to your legal advisor who can advise you on how to prepare a Will to incorporate your wishes, or you may add a codicil to an existing Will to include NIDA.
Bequests can be made in a number of ways, including:
- A specific asset (Shares, property, jewellery, art etc)
- A specified sum of money
- A portion or percentage of an estate
- A life insurance policy
We thank you for your interest in making a bequest to NIDA, and assure you that your privacy and wishes will be given the utmost respect.
