Including a gift to Starship in your Will is easy. Before you do, we suggest you share your plans with your family, so they understand your intentions. Secondly, speak to your solicitor and disucss your options.
There are several ways you might choose to leave a gift to Starship. For example, you might want to
leave the "rest and residue" or what is left after making provision for your loved ones, a percentage of the total amount of your estate or a percentage of the residue. Please discuss these options with your solicitor.
No matter how much you leave to Starship, we work hard to ensure every single dollar we receive is put to good use for the benefit of our young patients and their families.
Here are some examples of the kind of wording you could use:
I give to Starship Foundation...
The rest and residue of my estate.... or
_______ percent of my estate.... or
_______ percent of the residue of my estate.... or
The sum of $________.
Free of all duties and testamentary expenses for its general purposes and I direct that the receipt of that
organisation shall be sufficient discharge to my executors for this bequest.
