Below are the three most effective wording options for including a bequest in a Will – either your own or that of a family or friend or, if you are a solicitor, a client.

Each of these ensures that the real dollar value of your bequest is not eroded by inflation.

1. Wording for a residuary bequest

I give and bequeath the rest and residue of my estate both real and personal to Mission Australia – (ACN 000 002 522) Level 7, 580 George Street, Sydney NSW, for its general purposes and declare that the receipt of an executive officer at the time, shall be sufficient discharge of my executor’s duty.

2. Wording to leave a percentage of the residue of an estate

I give and bequeath __________ per cent of the residue of my estate to Mission Australia – (ACN 000 002 522) Level 7, 580 George Street, Sydney NSW for its general purposes and declare that the receipt of an executive officer at the time, shall be sufficient discharge of my executor’s duty.

3. Wording for leaving a percentage of the total estate

I give and bequeath __________ per cent of my estate to Mission Australia – (ACN 000 002 522) Level 7, 580 George Street, Sydney NSW, for its general purposes and declare that the receipt of an executive officer at the time, shall be sufficient discharge of my executor’s duty.

These are not the only ways you can make a bequest to Mission Australia, but they are the most effective.
