Leaving a Bequest to WIRES

Wording for Your Will

There are three main ways in which you can leave a bequest to WIRES. 

Below is the wording for you or your solicitor to use in your will to enact these options.

A proportion

Leaving a proportion of your estate means that your gift will not be affected by fluctuations in the size of your estate.

“I give and bequeath (free of all duties) ..…..% of my estate to WIRES NSW Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service Incorporated, PO Box 7276, Warringah Mall, NSW, 2100, in aid of that Foundation and for its general purposes, with the written acknowledgement of WIRES to be accepted by my executors as a full and complete discharge.”

The residue

It is extremely important to include a residuary clause in your will, in order to dispose of any assets not otherwise mentioned.

“I give and bequeath (free of all duties) the rest and residue of my estate to WIRES NSW Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service Incorporated, PO Box 7276, Warringah Mall, NSW, 2100, in aid of that Foundation and for its general purposes, with the written acknowledgement of WIRES to be accepted by my executors as a full and complete discharge.”

A fixed sum

Nominating a specific amount in your will is the simplest form of bequest.

“I give and bequeath (free of all duties) the sum of $........ to WIRES NSW Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service Incorporated, PO Box 7276, Warringah Mall, NSW, 2100, in aid of that Foundation and for its general purposes, with the written acknowledgement of WIRES to be accepted by my executors as a full and complete discharge.”
