Will writing

Thank you for helping to make a Will that includes a gift to MCRI. The correct wording to use when including a bequest to Murdoch Children’s Research Institute is:

“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 your client would like their gift to be used for a specific type of research we ask them to contact us first, to ensure their wishes can be carried out.
