Making a bequest

Leaving a bequest for The Canine Research Foundation is a very considerate way of continuing to supporting our work.

Making a bequest is very easy to arrange. If you have already made a will, and wish to add a bequest, your solicitor can simply add a codicil. It is very important, when you are ready to write or change your will that you do so with your legal adviser to ensure your wishes are recorded in a legally binding fashion. Below is the correct legal wording to use, depending on your wishes. Your solicitor can also contact us for further information.

Wording to use to make a bequest to support:

“I give to The Canine Research Foundation, ABN 52 983 668 217,

a)(all of my residuary estate) OR
b)( ____ percentage of my residuary estate) OR
c) (the sum of $______) OR
d)([list asset or assets])

to be applied for the purposes of the said charity. If in the intervening period, it becomes a separate legal entity, then the bequest will be forwarded to that entity.

I declare that the receipt of a Trustee of the Foundation or other authorised officer will be a sufficient discharge to my executors who will not be bound to see the application of this gift.”

Thank you for considering making this very special gift to support us.
