Leave a Bequest

Leaving a bequest to Out Doors in your Will can make a real difference to the mental health of our future participants.

How do I know how much I can leave?
Any bequest, regardless of size, is gratefully received by Out Doors. The amount you leave is up to you and can be determined in the following ways.

  • The residue of your estate (after specific gifts and costs have been distributed)
  • A percentage of the residue
  • A specific amount of money
  • Specific items

How do I include Out Doors Inc. in my Will?
A Will is a legal document which details your wishes of how to distribute your assets (your Estate), after your death. We recommend that you consult your solicitor when preparing or making changes to your Will to ensure it is legal and valid.

Suggested wording to include in your Will
I give, devise and bequeath unto Out Doors Inc. in the State of Victoria for its general purposes, (a specified sum), or (specified items), or (the residue of my estate) free of all duties, and the receipt of the Director or other authorised officer for the time being shall be a complete and sufficient discharge for the executor(s).

Can I change my existing Will?
Small changes or additions to an existing Will such as the inclusion of a bequest to Out Doors Inc. can be done by adding a codicil which must be signed and witnessed in the same manner as a will.
If you have decided to leave a gift to Out Doors, please consider notifying us so that we have the chance to thank you in your lifetime.
