Leaving a gift or bequest in your will, enables you to continue supporting those causes you hold dear beyond your own lifetime. This is your special way to ensure the work that Activus Transport does in the local community continues long into the future. Including Activus Transport in your will is a far-sighted and generous gesture and it can make a huge difference to the services we provide to people impacted by social isolation.
Your will is a legal document that ensures your wishes are followed after your death. Whether you are writing your will for the first time, or revising it at any stage during your life, you should seek the advice of a solicitor or another professional with expertise in this area.
Your solicitor or advisor may ask for an example of the necessary wording that identifies Activus Transport as the recipient of the gift. The exact wording will depend on the type of bequest you decide to make to us, but we recommend you use the following wording:
'I give, devise and bequeath to Activus Transport Inc (ABN: 23 055 084 734) of 1160 Old Princes Highway,
Engadine, NSW 2233 for its general purposes, free from all taxes and duties the rest and residue of
my estate both real and personal
% (per cent) of the residue of my estate
% (per cent) of my estate
$ <insert amount>
I direct that the receipt of a director or officer for the time being of Activus Transport Inc will be a sufficient discharge to my Trustees.'
Activus Transport is a not for profit organisation and registered charity. There may be more information about us that your solicitor might need, such as proof that we have deductible gift recipient status from the Australian Taxation Office, or the registration of our business.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you need further details or information.
You are under no obligation to disclose the details of your will to anyone. But, if you do decide to leave a bequest to Activus Transport Inc, we'd love to hear from you. Knowing your intentions will enable us to thank you for this ultimate show of generosity during your lifetime, as well as keeping you updated about our work and our future plans.
