Bequest

A gift of any size will help fund crucial, grass-roots research into the causes, prevention, treatment and cure of diseases that can be treated by bone marrow transplants and support patients and their families who are living with these diseases. If you wish, you can specify how you want your gift to be spent (on research, scholarships or patient support services).

We would love to know if you are planning to leave a gift to Arrow in your will. We’d like to thank you for your kindness and keep you updated on the latest research initiatives and the type of services your gift will be supporting. To show our appreciation, we’d also like to invite you to tour our research laboratories and see, first-hand, the research projects currently underway.

How to leave a gift in your will

There are two types of gift you can leave – a specific amount, or a percentage of the residue of your estate after all your costs and individual gifts have been paid. To make sure you identify Arrow correctly (and avoid any potential delays or confusion in processing your gift), you can add this simple wording to your will.

‘I [your name] give, devise and bequeath [nominate your type of gift] unto the Arrow Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation for its general purposes, free of all duties, the following:

………. per cent of my estate or the residue

The sum of $ ……………………………………..

Life Insurance Policy No…………………………

Property situated at ……………………………..

Other ………………………………………………..

(a) A general charitable intent shall apply.

(b) The receipt of the Treasurer or other Proper Officer of the Company shall be sufficient discharge to my Executor for the bequest.

(c) My Executors and trustees shall not be obliged to see or to enquire into the application of money or assets, the subject of such bequest’.

It’s a good idea to get advice from a solicitor or public trustee to make sure that you’ve covered everything you need to in your will and that it’s properly prepared and legally binding.
