Wording for your Will

Below is the most effective wording to include a bequest to Oxfam Australia in your Will. Please take this with you when you visit your solicitor.

“I give, free of all duties and taxes *____ to Oxfam Australia (ABN 18 055 208 636) of 132 Leicester Street, Carlton, Victoria 3053 for its general purposes. An authorised receipt from Oxfam Australia will be a sufficient discharge for the executor(s) or trustee.”

*insert either:

  • The whole (or …%) of the residue of my estate.
  • The whole (or … %) of my estate.
  • The sum of $ (amount).
  • (Details of a particular asset — such as shares or property).
