Where would you like your donation to go?
Leaving a gift in your will has the power to change the future of motor neurone disease. A valid Will allows you to decide how you would like your assets to be distributed. You should seek legal advice from a solicitor or authorised trustee company because it is important your wishes are properly expressed, and that the correct legal wording is used.
For a gift to Motor Neurone Disease Research Australia, the following wording is appropriate:
"I give (my estate) or (portion/the residue of my estate) or (the sum of $________ ) to the Motor Neurone Disease Research Institute of Australia Inc. (ABN 46 789 710 580) for research into motor neurone disease. I declare that the receipt of the Institute’s President, Treasurer, Secretary or Executive Director shall be sufficient discharge to my trustees."
For a gift to Motor Neurone Disease Australia, the following wording is appropriate:
"I give (my estate) or (portion/the residue of my estate) or (the sum of $________ ) to the Motor Neurone Disease Association of Australia Inc. (ABN 52 650 269 176). I declare that the receipt of the Institute’s President, Treasurer, Secretary or Executive Director shall be sufficient discharge to my trustees."
We are currently in the process of developing some new bequest resources, which will be available soon.
