How to leave a bequest donation in your Will

It is important to have a Will to ensure your estate is given to the people and causes you most care about. You should discuss your intentions with family and seek legal advice.  As a guide, the most common types of gifts include:

  • Residual gift - a percentage of the residual from your estate after any expenses that will not be eroded by inflation over time.

  • Pecuniary gift - a specified amount of money.
