Wills and Bequests
Your Bequest can help ensure the continuity of our unique educational activities, science communication events and interactive exhibitions.
How do Bequests work?
There are a number of ways in which you can contribute to the ongoing success of RiAus:
- A General Bequest is usually a sum of money or a percentage of the value of your estate.
- A Specific Bequest is a gift of a particular piece of property such as a house, furniture or jewellery.
- A Residual Bequest includes anything remaining in your estate after the general and specific bequests have been paid.
What do you need to do?
Making a Will involves important decisions. When updating your Will, talk to your solicitor about how you can leave a gift to RiAus.
To leave a bequest, you need to include details of the donation in your Will. This can be done by writing a new Will, by making an amendment to an existing Will or by setting up a Trust. Your solicitor or professional adviser will be able to tell you more.
If you are considering making a gift to RiAus in your Will we would love to hear from you. We are sincerely grateful for any level of support and would be happy to offer assistance with the process. We would also like the opportunity to thank you personally and to give you the opportunity to find out more about the work your bequest will go towards supporting.
