Suggested wording

Every gift left to Wesley Mission Queensland makes a difference and contributes to bringing change. If you'd like to give a gift in your Will, there are a number of forms your generosity can take.

Specific Bequest

This is the gift of an item of specific value, passed on to Wesley Mission Queensland to generate funds.

It can be in the form of a gift of real estate or an investment such as stocks or shares.

Suggested wording for a specific bequest:

I give and bequeath [Insert a description of the item being gifted] to The Uniting Church in Australia Property Trust (Q.), GPO Box 674, Brisbane, for the benefit of Wesley Mission Queensland in aid of that organisation and for its general purposes* and declare the signature of a duly authorised person of the Trust to be a full and complete discharge.

Residual Bequest

A residual legacy is a gift of whatever is left of your Estate (or percentage thereof) after all your gifts, taxes and debts have been fulfilled. When you choose this form of gift, you can have peace of mind knowing that your loved ones will be cared for, without sacrificing your long-term support for Wesley Mission Queensland.

As a residual legacy does not reflect a specific gift amount, this form of gift keeps its value regardless of inflation. In other words, the gift you nominate today is worth just as much in the future.

Suggested wording for a residual bequest:

I give and bequeath (free of all duties) the rest and residue of my Estate to The Uniting Church in Australia Property Trust (Q.), GPO Box 674, Brisbane, for the benefit of Wesley Mission Queensland in aid of that organisation and for its general purposes* and declare the signature of a duly authorised person of the Trust to be a full and complete discharge.

Pecuniary Bequest

This form of gift specifies a set dollar amount, determined by you at the time of drawing up or altering your Will.

Suggested wording for a pecuniary bequest:

I give and bequeath the sum of $_____ to The Uniting Church in Australia Property Trust (Q.), GPO Box 674, Brisbane, for the benefit of Wesley Mission Queensland in aid of that organisation and for its general purposes* and declare the signature of a duly authorised person of the Trust to be a full and complete discharge.

A Testamentary Trust

You can also make a gift through a testamentary trust, which would provide Wesley Mission Queensland with ongoing financial support.
