Making a bequest to Pathways to Resilience Trust is an enduring way to help reduce the prevalence and impact of anxiety and depression in children and young people in the Australian community by giving them access to emotional resilience programs. Your bequest will most importantly enable us to reach more children, otherwise unable to access assistance, and teach them skills to empower them and improve their journey through life.
Prior to making or modifying your Will we recommend you obtain independent legal advice. This will help to ensure that the wording used accurately and validly records your wishes. However, if you wish to support Pathways to Resilience Trust through a bequest, we have provided some information and suggested wording below.
How to make a bequest to Pathways to Resilience Trust
There are two ways of making a bequest under your Will:
(a) by leaving a specific amount of money to Pathways to Resilience Trust ; or
(b) by leaving a share of your estate (in other words, a share of what is left of your estate after your family and other beneficiaries have been taken care of) to Pathways to Resilience Trust.
A clause in your Will to leave a bequest to The Pathways to Resilience Trust can be written as follows -
“I give to Pathways to Resilience Trust ABN 758 9582 3879 for its general purposes the sum of $[insert the relevant amount], free from all duties, deductions and charges. The receipt of an authorised officer for the time being of Pathways to Resilience Trust shall constitute a full and sufficient discharge of my executor’s duties.”
“I direct that [insert percentage]% of my residuary estate be given to Pathways to Resilience Trust ABN 758 9582 3879 for its general purposes. The receipt of an authorised officer for the time being of Pathways to Resilience Trust shall constitute a full and sufficient discharge of my executor’s duties.”
If you already have a Will, then all you need to do is add a codicil – a short legal amendment to your existing Will.
