For solicitors

All you need to include a gift to Mission Australia in your client’s Will is our ABN 15 000 002 522 and registered name, Mission Australia.

Suggested wording

We do not specify the wording you should use as we are not legal professionals. However, below are a couple of examples for the most common types of gifts we receive.

Residual gift

I give ________% of the residue of my Estate to Mission Australia – (ABN 15 000 002 522) for its general purposes, free of all duties and declare that the receipt of an executive officer at the time, shall be sufficient discharge of my executor’s duty.

Pecuniary gift

I give $_________ to Mission Australia – (ABN 15 000 002 522) for its general purposes, free of all duties and declare that the receipt of an executive officer at the time, shall be sufficient discharge of my executor’s duty.

Directing your client’s gift

Whilst free to direct their gift toward a particular purpose, we suggest you encourage your client not to limit their description because we may not be able to fulfil their request if it is too specific. To have financial flexibility in the future and ensure gifts have the greatest impact where they’re most needed, our preference is for these gifts to be directed to ‘the general purposes of Mission Australia’.
