Your Gift, Your Way

Leaving a gift in your Will to the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife is the simplest way for you to take care of your parks and their native plants and animals beyond your lifetime.

There are many different ways to leave a gift in your Will (also called a bequest) to the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife

Specific Bequests A specific amount from your estate will be transferred as a gift to the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife
Proportional Bequests A percentage of your estate will be transferred as a gift to the the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife. Few of us can anticipate the value of our assets at death, so giving a percentage of your estate will retain flexibility.
Residual Bequests The "residue" refers to all property available after other terms of the will or trust are satisfied. Residual bequests may be small or large, but in either case, you will have the assurance that your loved ones will be provided for before any charitable dispositions are made.
Contingent Bequests In this case an amount or portion of your bequest will go to the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife only if one or more other beneficiaries of your will may not survive you.
Life Insurance Policies You can include the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy.
Leaving an Income or Life Estate for a Loved One If your property will be needed to ensure a comfortable lifestyle for a loved one, consider leaving the use of your property to that person for their lifetime. At that person's death, the property will be distributed to the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, as you specify in your will. Or, you may set aside property for a period of years, generating income for a specific purpose such as the education of children or grandchildren until a specific age. At the end of the period, all or a portion of the property could pass to the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, as you have specified.

Suggested wording

To include the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife in your will, simply insert the following wording into your will or trust: "I give (specific amount, percentage, or residue) to Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife ACN 000 744 516 for its general purposes."

Specific purposes

If you wish to leave a legacy for a specific purpose such as land acquisition or to protect our wildlife please specify this in your will or contact Ian Darbyshire to discuss your options: call 1800 898 626 or email idarbyshire@fnpw.org.au.

Your gift of property left to the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife in your will entitles your estate to a capital gains tax exemption.
