Wills &
Bequests

Every gift, no matter how large or small, is important to the Rosemary Bryant Foundation. Including a gift in your Will is a wonderful way to continue to make a significant impact to the health and wellbeing of all Australians without impacting your life today.

Bequest funds are vital to ensuring the Foundation will be able to continue to support nursing and midwifery research. 

Leaving a bequest is a very personal decision and you should look after your loved ones first. Once this provision has been made it is possible to include a bequest to the Foundation in a number of different ways.

Specific bequests are gifts of particular articles of property, e.g. a house, shares, furniture.
Pecuniary bequests are gifts of a specific sum of money.
Contingency bequests are made only when the executor of an estate cannot distribute the estate as planned in the Will.
Residuary bequests are made up of the remainder of an estate once pecuniary and specific bequests have been distributed.

A popular way of including a charity in a Will is to include a proportion of the residue of an estate. For further information on how to make a bequest to the Rosemary Bryant Foundation please contact Claire Dollard on 08 8178 4201 or email claire@rbf.org.au
