Guiding you through the process of leaving a bequest

Types of bequests

After providing for your family and friends, you may consider leaving a bequest to Alzheimer’s Australia WA. 

Whether large of small, your bequest will help us fund vital dementia projects, services and research that otherwise will not be possible. There are a variety of ways to make your bequest to Alzheimer’s Australia WA, including:

  • Residue (whole). The remainder of your estate after you have allocated any specific bequests.
  • Residue (percentage). A percentage of the remainder of your estate. 
  • A specific dollar amount.
  • Proceeds from the sale of a certain assets such as shares, securities or life insurance. 
  • Contingent bequest, should a love one predecease you. 
  • A living bequest.  Gifting your bequest now rather than update a will. 

Can my Will be changed?

Even if you already have a will you can still leave a gift to Alzheimer’s Australia WA. 

IF your changes or additions are minor, a simple addition (codicil) to your existing will may be suitable.

Your legal advisor can assist you.
