BCNA has been privileged to receive bequests from some of our members and supporters after their death. We are extremely grateful for this support and offer the following practical information to assist anyone who is considering leaving a bequest.
You may have already drawn up a will and now feel that you would like to ensure that all or part of your estate is bequeathed to Breast Cancer Network Australia. We recommend that you seek professional legal advice to ensure that your wishes are carried out fully.
You may find it useful to discuss these clauses with your solicitor:
I give and bequeath to Breast Cancer Network Australia the rest and residue of my Estate Duty to be applied for the purpose of the said Network in such manner as the Board of Directors thereof may determine and I declare that the Receipt of its Chief Executive, Treasurer or other authorised officer shall be a complete discharge of this Bequest.
Please consider leaving a percentage of your estate rather than a dollar amount, as the value of your bequest could be significantly eroded by inflation between the time you write your will and the time it is administered.
Do not hesitate to contact BCNA to discuss the different ways your bequest can make a difference to the lives of those affected by breast cancer.
