Bequest - Legacy

To carry out its vital work Legacy is reliant on contributions from the community; bequests make up a significant part of these contributions. After carefully considering your family and friends in your Will, making a bequest to Legacy ensures that you will be well remembered and leave a lasting legacy which will continue to make a difference well into the future.

Including a charity like Legacy in your will is one of the most powerful ways to make a difference. There are a variety of ways to include Legacy in your will, none of which will impact on your lifestyle, but will be a lasting legacy.

If you would like more information about making your Will or leaving a bequest to Legacy, or if you need assistance in finding a solicitor in your area, please contact Adelaide Legacy.

As a guide, Legacy recommends the following wording for general bequests:

'I give the whole/residue* of my estate to <Legacy Club of South Australia and Broken Hill Inc ABN 48 827 750 273> for its general purposes (or specific purposes) of such fund and the receipt of any one of the Directors for the time being of such fund shall be sufficient discharge to my trustees.'
*delete whichever is inapplicable

OR

'I give sum of/percentage* (the actual amount should be written in words and in numbers) to <Legacy Club of South Australia and Broken Hill Inc ABN 48 827 750 273> for its general purposes (or specific purposes) of such fund and the receipt of any one of the Directors for the time being of such fund shall be sufficient discharge to my trustees.'
*delete whichever is inapplicable
