In leaving a gift in your Will, you may choose to nominate a specific program coordinated by the CCH, a specific piece of art and/or program.
There are also several different types of bequests you may like to consider:
A percentage bequest is a nominated percentage of your estate.
2. Residual Bequest
The residual bequest is what remains of your estate after family and friends have been provided for.
3. Specific Bequest
A specific bequest is a nominated amount or a specific gift.
A Will is one of the most important documents you will prepare as it gives you the choice to provide for the people you love and causes that are most significant to you. By including a gift to the Centre for Creative Health in your Will, you are leaving a meaningful contribution that will positively impact patients receiving treatment at the RAH.
If you already have a Will in place and wish to make provisions for the Centre for Creative Health, a simple amendment or codicil can be arranged through your solicitor. Remember to review your Will every few years as your circumstances may change.
To ensure that the correct preparation and wording of your bequest is recorded in your Will, we suggest you make an appointment with your solicitor.
To make a bequest to the Centre for Creative Health, the following wording may be useful:
‘I give (insert the bequest detail – the residual, a percentage of the estate or a nominated gift or property, money or item of value) to the Centre for Creative Health located at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, L3 Concourse, 3A477.01, Port Road, Adelaide SA 5000 and I declare that the receipt of the Public Officer, Chief Financial Officer or Chief Executive Officer for the time being shall be sufficient discharge to my Trustee/s for the payment of such benefit.’
A Will is a personal document. However, if you do intend to make a bequest to the Centre for Creative Health we would like to offer our assistance in filling out an Intention Form, which is also available for download below.
