Leave a Bequest

MY WISH IS FOR OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS TO BE ABLE TO ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF NATURE AND AUSTRALIA’S WILDLIFE.

Perhaps you’d like to make a specific gift to a charitable organisation from your Estate (a bequest)? Leaving a bequest is a personal choice and one that comes from the heart.

“Whilst your wishes concerning the distribution of your assets (as expressed in your Will) may ultimately be overridden by the Court, at least making a Will means that your reasoning in making provision for the distribution of your assets in the way that you have will have to be taken into account and given due consideration”.

There are a number of types of bequests to select from:
• A specific cash amount;
• A percentage of the total value of your estate;
• A specific gift of real estate, stocks, shares, bonds etc;
• A residual gift which enables you to provide specific amounts for family & friends with the remainder being distributed to your choice of charities.

A philanthropic bequest can be included in your Will, as a memorial to your values in life. For instance, it could be your church, or a favourite charity that you’ve supported, or some other far reaching non-profit work that you’re aware of.

Why choose WILDLIFE ROCKHAMPTON – RESCUE, REHABILITATION & RELEASE INC. for your charitable bequest.

Nature is not only essential to the existence of life, but nature also gives us the gifts of beauty, wonder, recreation, and enjoyment. With its many gifts given to us freely, to be treasured during our own lifetime, and then as custodians, we have both the pleasure and the responsibility of handing it on to future generations.

Looking after our nature doesn’t ‘just happen’. It takes management and commitment. It’s up to each one of us to commit to the conservation of nature during, and even after, our time here.

If you decide to leave a gift to a non-profit registered charity like Wildlife Rockhampton, it is important that the correct wording is used in your Will to avoid confusion, including the organisation’s registered name and ABN as shown below.

WILDLIFE ROCKHAMPTON – RESCUE, REHABILITATION &
RELEASE INC. ABN 26 779 227 907

The following clause may be helpful in Will preparations:

“I bequeath the (sum of $ or type of bequest as appropriate) to Wildlife Rockhampton – Rescue, Rehabilitation & Release Inc. – ABN 26 779 227 907 for its general purposes and declare that the receipt of the Treasurer for the time being of Wildlife Rockhampton – Rescue, Rehabilitation & Release Inc. shall be complete discharge to my executors in respect of any sum paid to Wildlife Rockhampton – Rescue, Rehabilitation & Release Inc.”

Thank you for considering how you can continue to help our wildlife by including Wildlife Rockhampton –
Rescue, Rehabilitation & Release Inc. in your Will.

BE ASSURED, YOUR GIFT WILL MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE!
