Bequests and Wills
By leaving a bequest to Kidney, Transplant & Diabetes Research Australia, you’re ensuring we can continue to deliver improved treatments and care for those with kidney disease and diabetes and work towards eliminating these diseases in the future. Whether large or small, your bequest will be valued greatly, because it could save the life of someone you know living with chronic kidney disease or diabetes.
How to Leave a Bequest
In leaving a bequest, you may choose to nominate a specific area of kidney, transplant and diabetes research, a specific research fellowship or a student scholarship.
There are also several different types of bequests you may like to consider:
- Percentage Bequest
A percentage bequest is a nominated percentage of your estate.
- Residual Bequest
The residual bequest is what remains of your estate after family and friends have been provided for.
- Specific Bequest
A specific bequest is a nominated amount or a specific gift.
Your Will is one of the most important documents you will prepare. It enables you to care for the people you love beyond your lifetime as well as the organisations or causes that are significant to you. By including a gift to Kidney, Transplant and Diabetes Research Australia in your Will, you are leaving a meaningful contribution that will positively impact the health of all Australians.
If you already have a Will in place and wish to make provisions for Kidney, Transplant & Diabetes Research Australia, a simple amendment or codicil can be arranged through your solicitor. Remember to review your Will every few years and whenever your personal circumstances change.
To ensure that the correct preparation and wording of your bequest is recorded in your Will, we suggest you make an appointment with your solicitor.
To make a bequest to Kidney, Transplant & Diabetes Research Australia, the following wording may be useful:
‘I give (insert the bequest detail – the residual, a percentage of the estate or a nominated gift or property, money or item of value) to Kidney, Transplant & Diabetes Research Australia of 60 Woodville Road, Woodville, South Australia 5011 and I declare that the receipt of the Public Officer, Chief Financial Officer or Chief Executive Officer for the time being shall be sufficient discharge to my Trustee/s for the payment of such benefit.’
A Will is a personal document. However, if you do intend to make a bequest to Kidney, Transplant & Diabetes Research Australia, we would like to offer our assistance.
