How you can make a bequest to the Grail in Australia
A bequest is a provision in a Will that specifies a portion from a person’s estate to be given to a chosen beneficiary. If you would like to make a provision for a bequest to The Grail in Australia, we suggest the following:
- Have a legally acceptable Will drawn up. Although you can prepare your own Will, it is advisable to seek the advice of a solicitor. For the moderate charge involved, this will ensure that your wishes are clearly understood.
- Insert a paragraph into your Will to make a gift. The ‘gift clause’ we recommend is:
I give to The Grail in Australia of The Grail Centre, 22 McHatton Street, North Sydney, NSW 2060, (specify the percentage of your Estate or the amount in numerals and words or the real property) to be paid free of all duties.
The receipt of the Secretary, Treasurer or public officer for the time being, of the organisation benefiting under this clause will be sufficient discharge to my Executors.
- It is in your interest to review your Will periodically and confidentially discuss its contents with your Executors, so that they will have a clear understanding of your instructions. Should circumstances change, you may need to alter your Will, in which case you should inform your Executors of your decision.
- It would be a great help to us if you could notify us of your intentions, as this would give us an opportunity to express our appreciation to you personally.
