Bequest

Leaving a bequest in your Will can make a significant difference to future generations of people affected by hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.

Leaving a bequest in your Will can make a significant difference to future generations of people facing their risk of breast and ovarian cancer.

A bequest is a gift or donation of any size that is left in your Will and is a powerful way to ensure that your generosity continues to make a significant difference beyond your lifetime.

How to leave a bequest in your Will

Leaving a gift to Pink Hope in your Will is an easy way to show your support. If you would like to ensure that all or part of your estate is bequeathed to Pink Hope, it’s a good idea to seek professional legal advice. This will ensure your wishes are met.

Your gift can take a variety of forms:

  • Residuary – the remainder of an estate after specific gifts have been disbursed
  • Percentage – a percentage of either the residue or the entire estate
  • Pecuniary – a specific gift of cash
  • A specific asset – real estate, shares, bonds or other particular items of value

Residuary and Percentage are the most beneficial forms of bequest as they hold their value over time. Please consider leaving a percentage of your estate rather than a dollar amount, as the value of your bequest could be significantly eroded by inflation between the time you write your will and the time it is administered.

Suggested Wording

If you would like to make a bequest, you will need your solicitor to insert a clause in your Will. You may find it useful to discuss the following clauses with your solicitor:

I give and bequeath to Pink Hope the rest and residue of my Estate Duty to be applied for the purpose of the said charity in such manner as the Board of Directors thereof may determine and I declare that the Receipt of its Chief Executive, Treasurer or other authorised officer shall be a complete discharge of this Bequest.
