Bequesting

Bequests are a simple yet incredibly powerful way to provide support for the causes that matter the most to you. They transfer your Will in to one of the most potent tools for change there is, with little or no impact on your lifestyle today.

Types of Bequests:

Residuary bequest
This is simply a gift of whatever is left of your estate (or a percentage thereof) after all your other gifts, taxes and debts have been fulfilled.

As they are not specific amounts of money, this sort of bequest keeps its value regardless of inflation over the years. It means that the gift you include today is worth just as much when the time comes to put it to work preventing child abuse and neglect.

Pecuniary bequest
This refers to leaving a gift of a set dollar amount determined by you at the time of drawing up or altering your Will.

Specific bequest
This is leaving a gift of an item of specific value to be passed on to NAPCAN in order to generate funds.

Suggested wording for a bequest to NAPCAN
We recommend that you seek advice from your solicitor when making or updating your Will.

Suggested wording is as follows:

Residuary bequest
“I give, devise and bequeath to the National Association for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect free from all duties, the following ______ percentage OR the remainder of my estate and direct that the receipt of the Chief Executive Officer for the time being will be a sufficient discharge to my trustees.”

Pecuniary bequest
“I give devise and bequeath to the National Association for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect free from all duties, the following $______ amount and direct that the receipt of the Chief Executive Officer for the time being will be a sufficient discharge to my trustees.”

Specific bequest
“I give, devise and bequeath to the National Association of Child Abuse and Neglect free from all duties, the following _________ item/s and direct that the receipt of the Chief Executive Officer for the time being will be a sufficient discharge to my trustees.”

Your bequest will enable NAPCAN to continue its quest to ensure that all children in Australia are able to lead a safe, healthy and happy life.
