DONATIONS AND BEQUESTS TO LANDCARE


If you have been looking into leaving a bequest to a Landcare organisation, without a will there is no mechanism in place to make a bequest.  Here are some examples of wordings to use to make sure your wishes are granted.


General Bequest Language

"I give, devise, and bequeath to NAME OF CHARITY / LOCATION, the sum of $__ (or a description of specific asset), for the benefit of NAME OF CHARITY and its general purposes."


Specific Bequest Language

"I give, and bequeath to NAME OF CHARITY / LOCATION, the sum of $__ (or description of a specific asset), for the benefit of NAME OF CHARITY to be used for the following purpose: (state purpose).  If at any time in the judgement of the trustees of the NAME OF CHARITY it is impossible or impractical to carry out exactly the designated purpose, they shall determine an alternative purpose closest to the designated purpose."
