Bequests

Bequests are very important to Friends of the Hound Inc.

We receive no public funding, relying entirely on donations and the fundraising efforts of a small group of volunteers.

Why you should put your affairs in order…

Your Will ensures that your Estate will pass to those who you wish to benefit. By leaving clear and precise instructions about the disposal of your Estate, you will save your loved ones unnecessary distress at a time when they are least able to cope with it.

If you would like to leave a legacy to Friends of the Hound Inc. please include the following paragraph when making or updating your Will:

“I leave $_________ to Friends of the Hound Inc., ABN 12 101 552 025, for its general purposes and I direct that the receipt of the Secretary, Treasurer, or other proper officer of that organisation is a sufficient receipt for my Trustee and that my Trustee is not obliged to see to the application of this bequest.”

The above wording may need to be adapted for your particular circumstances. For example you may wish to leave a percentage of your assets to Friends of the Hound Inc. rather than a lump sum, or perhaps a particular valuable asset, such as real estate, shares, or other items.

Please seek necessary legal advice.

Thank you for your support.
