Leave a bequest

After providing for your family and friends you may wish to consider leaving a bequest to Dementia Australia in your Will.

Your gift is a special way to be remembered and will truly make a positive difference to people living with dementia and their families.

Your bequest to Dementia Australia QLD Division may take the form of:

  • A share or proportion of the residue of your estate, or
  • A specified amount of money, or
  • A nominated asset such as shares or real estate; or
  • You may choose to nominate Dementia Australia QLD Division as an alternative or substitute beneficiary if any of your major beneficiaries predecease you.

We suggest the following wording to be used in your Will (subject to your legal adviser’s confirmation of course):

I bequeath to Alzheimer's Australia (Qld) Limited trading as Dementia Australia QLD Division, ABN 62 659 237 563, of 825 Stanley Street, Woolloongabba Qld 4102 for its general purposes the sum of $....., free of all duties and charges (or portion of estate or description of property). In making my gift I declare that the receipt of the treasurer or other proper officer shall be a sufficient discharge to my trustee; and my executors and trustees shall not be obliged to see or enquire into the application of money or assets, the subject of my legacy.

Things to consider:

  • Also remember it is most important to regularly review and update your will to cater for any changes in your family or personal circumstances.
  • We recommend you seek professional advice from a solicitor to ensure your bequest is clearly and legally stated.
