Types of bequests
After you have provided for your loved ones in your Will, you may like to consider the following types of charitable bequest to Macular Disease Foundation Australia:
- A residual bequest is the most effective way to leave a bequest. It represents the remainder of your Estate, after you have made provision for your loved ones. A residual bequest will keep up with inflation.
- Leaving a percentage of your Estate allows you to decide what proportion of your Estate you would like to provide as a bequest. This will also keep up with inflation.
- A pecuniary bequest is a fixed sum of money to be left as a bequest.
