Bequest

Bequests are a powerful way to provide support for the causes that matter most to you. Bequests transfer your legal will into a potent tool for change, with little or no impact on your lifestyle today.

Bequests made to Northern Hospice & Palliative Care Foundation will be used to purchase fittings and fixtures that will be required to effectively run the facility.

If you choose to include what is known as a ‘residuary bequest’ in your legal will, you will have the peace of mind of knowing that your family and loved ones will be catered for, without sacrificing your long-term support for the Northern Hospice & Palliative Care Foundation.

Types of bequests
RESIDUARY BEQUEST

This relates to the remainder of your estate, or a percentage thereof, after all other gifts, taxes and debts have been fulfilled.

As residuary bequests are not specific amounts of money, they keep their value regardless of inflation over the years. 
PECUNIARY BEQUEST

This refers to leaving a gift of a set dollar amount determined by you at the time of drawing up or at the time of making your will.
SPECIFIC BEQUEST

A specific bequest is a gift of specific items.
It is important that you obtain advice from a legal practitioner in relation to the making of your will and the provision of a bequest to the foundation and any other associated estate planning requirements.
