Why make a bequest to the Neurosurgical Research Foundation?
We ask you to consider a bequest to the Foundation in your Will so that we can continue to help save lives and make a difference to the quality of life for many others. The NRF receives no government funding and is dependent on the generosity of the community to achieve its objectives.
The making of a Will is an important part of your planning; it gives you peace of mind to know that you have looked after your loved ones and friends, as well as alleviating the confusion that occurs when one’s wishes are unknown.
It is important to make your own decisions about what happens to your assets.
To help you leave a Bequest to the Foundation, your solicitor or trustee company will advise about the wording and legal requirements.
You may decide to leave:
- Property or assets (real estate, shares or other assets)
- The residue of your estate (that remaining after you have taken care of family and friends).
- A particular item or items, this could include jewellery , paintings any items of value.
- A specific sum of money.
- Life Insurance, you can arrange a life insurance policy that pays out a tax-free benefit to your chosen charity.
The first thing to do when organising your Will is to choose a solicitor or trustee company to prepare your Will.
Your Will is a legal document which will make sure that your assets are distributed in accordance with your wishes. Many people talk about the ways they would like their property to be distributed after death, but never do anything about making a Will.
Bequests to the Neurosurgical Research Foundation will help us achieve our goals.
Why you should have a valid Will
Many people don’t think about their own death. Sadly, we all know that an accident or an illness can occur at any time to anyone. Making a Will is one of those tasks we tend to put off until tomorrow with approximately 50% of Australians just never getting around to it.
Dying without a Will is Intestate. This can cause even more grief to your family trying to guess how to fulfill your wishes. Don’t let this happen to your family! This is your only opportunity to make your own decisions about what happens to your assets.
