A gift in your Will

Leave a gift in your Will

A bequest, or legacy, can be the most important gift you ever give.  By remembering BKFA in your Will you are helping to ensure that the lives of future generations of women and their babies born in developing countries can be saved and improved.

We appreciate that family and loved ones should always come first, and believe that it is an important step to talk to them about your Will and let them know of your intentions, should you choose to leave a bequest to BKFA.

Leaving a gift is an important decision but it doesn’t have to be complicated. The basic steps are outlined below:

Make or update your will

We recommend using a solicitor to make sure your Will is legal and valid. The most important thing is your own peace of mind so we encourage you to discuss your Will with your legal advisor.

If you would like to include a gift to BKFA in your Will, examples of correct wording can be found below:

To donate a percentage of your estate: “I give to Birthing Kit Foundation Australia (ABN 65 121 658 428), for its general purposes, free of all duties x% of my residuary estate for which an authorised receipt from Birthing Kit Foundation Australia will be a sufficient discharge for the executor(s) or trustee.”

To donate the entirety of your estate: ” I give to Birthing Kit Foundation Australia (ABN 65 121 658 428), for its general purposes, free of all duties the whole of the residue of my estate for which an authorised receipt from Birthing Kit Foundation Australia  will be a sufficient discharge for the executor(s) or trustee.”

To donate a specific sum: “I give to Birthing Kit Foundation Australia (ABN 65 121 658 428), for its general purposes, free of all duties the sum of $xxx for which an authorised receipt from Birthing Kit Foundation Australia will be a sufficient discharge for the executor(s) or trustee.”
