Before you visit your solicitor, make a list of everything you own and think about who your executor could be. Our Will planner could help you do this. 

You can find the most effective wording to include a gift in your Will for MCRI below. Please download a copy and take it with you when you visit your solicitor.

“I give [(a) my whole estate; or (b) the residue (or percentage of the residue) of my estate; or (c) $(amount); or (d) a specific item] to the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute ABN 21 006 566 972 of 50 Flemington Road, Parkville VIC 3052 for its general purposes. The receipt of the treasurer, secretary or public officer for the time being of a beneficiary under this provision is a sufficient discharge to my executors/trustees in respect of a gift to that beneficiary and I declare that my executors/trustees shall not be responsible for seeing to the application of that gift.”

If you would like your gift to be used for a specific type of research please contact us first to make sure that your wishes can be carried out.
