How to make a Bequest to the KBH Brumbies Hockey Club?

BEQUEST

A bequest (also known as a legacy) is a gift of money or property that you leave to your Hockey Club.

This is achieved through the inclusion of the KBH Brumbies Hockey Club in the last Will and Testament (“Will”) of the person making the bequest.

Without exception, a person with property and/or family should have a will.

By having a properly drafted Will, you can avoid the confusion that often arises over estate administration. It’s a surprising statistic that less than two-thirds of the Australian adult population has a valid Will.

Making a Will is easy and contributes positively to your peace of mind because you’ll know that your wishes will be honoured. It’s your way of taking care of your family and others who are important to you.

Once you have ensured that you have taken care of your family, friends and loved ones you can also choose to benefit your Hockey Club.
 

YOUR BEQUEST TO KBH Brumbies CLUB CAN TAKE A NUMBER OF FORMS:

  • A percentage of the value of your Estate (to ensure other beneficiaries are not disadvantaged should circumstances change),

  • The whole or part of the residue of the Estate after you’ve made provisions for family and other beneficiaries,

  • A specified amount of money (please note that a specified amount of money will not appreciate over time.)

TO ENSURE THAT YOUR WISHES ARE CLEARLY AND LEGALLY STATED, YOU MAY WISH TO CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS:

  • Consulting a Solicitor or Trustee Company, or

  • Amending your Will to insert a clause which provides for the KBH Brumbies Hockey Club (or derivative club)

While there are several types of bequest clauses, the following is most commonly used for a general bequest:

EXAMPLE:

“I give to the KBH Brumbies Hockey Club (ABN: 87 391 108 683)____ % of the whole of the residue of my Estate”,

OR “the whole of the residue of my Estate”,

Or “the sum of $______________” and add

“The receipt of an authorised officer of the KBH Brumbies Hockey Club will be sufficient discharge to my Executor/Trustee”

 

The KBH Brumbies Hockey Club is not qualified or authorised to provide legal advice.

To register your interest in making a bequest on behalf of yourself or a family member / or to enquire and receive some more information, please contact us and an authorised person of the Club will contact you.
