How to include VincentCare in your Will
Your Will is your last gift, here is the suggested wording for your solicitor.
Written wisely, your Will can give your family and friends peace of mind. Firstly, discuss your intentions with your family or a friend and then seek legal guidance. A Will is a legal document and should be prepared in consultation with a trusted legal advisor.
We recommend that you review your Will regularly to reflect your current circumstances, keep it safe and easy-to-access, and advise your executors where the original is kept.
Your Will is one of the most important documents you will ever prepare. Should you generously decide to include a gift to VincentCare Victoria in your Will, please use the following words to ensure your wishes are fulfilled.
I give to VINCENTCARE VICTORIA LIMITED ABN 53 094 807 280 for its general purposes (please insert here the appropriate following statement)
The whole of my estate, or
[insert number] percent of my estate, or
[insert number] percent of the residue of my estate, or
the sum of $ [insert value of your gift].
Free from all duties and testamentary expenses to VincentCare Victoria for its general purposes and I direct that the receipt of the organisation shall be full and sufficient discharge to my executors for this gift in my Will.
Gifts made unconditionally can be directed to the area of greatest need. If you choose to leave a gift to a specific area, we recommend you express this as a wish, not a condition. This gives us the flexibility to transfer your gift to a similar area of work if it is no longer possible to fund the specific area you requested.
