Bequests

Making a Will is a very personal, but important thing to do – one that requires careful consideration and one that we all should do.

If you are making or updating your will and you have made allowance for your loved ones, you might consider leaving a lasting legacy – a Bequest to Colac Area Health Foundation. It would be a lasting gift to the health and welfare of future generations of those who live in the Colac and district region.

There are a number of ways that a bequest can be made:

  • A Fixed Percentage of your Estate or Residue.
  • A Specific Sum of Money.
  • Your Entire Estate or Residue.
  • Specific Gifts from your Estate.

Example Wording

  • I give $10,000 to COLAC AREA HEALTH FOUNDATION (ABN 82 147 412 833) and I declare it is my wish that this gift be applied to or used for its general charitable purposes. The receipt of an authorised officer of Colac Area Health Foundation shall be an absolute discharge to my executors
  • I give a 25% share of the residue of my estate to COLAC AREA HEALTH FOUNDATION (ABN 82 147 412 833) and I declare it is my wish that this gift be applied to or used for its general charitable purposes. The receipt of an authorised officer of Colac Area Health Foundation shall be an absolute discharge to my executors.

If you wish to make a Bequest to Colac Area Health Foundation, it is suggested that you carefully consider these options and discuss them fully with your family and solicitor.
