If you would like to provide for Telethon Kids Institute in your Will, there are various ways in which this can be done. You could leave a gift of:

  • A specific amount of money
  • A specific asset, such as a property, the proceeds of a life insurance policy, stocks or shares
  • The remainder of your estate (giving the Institute the remainder of your estate after you have bequeathed specific things to your loved ones)
  • A percentage of your total estate
  • Your entire estate

What you choose to give Telethon Kids Institute from your estate, whatever it may be, can be referred to as a “bequest” or a “legacy”.

We recommend that you use the following wording in your will for your bequest:

“I give [insert your bequest] to Telethon Kids Institute of Northern Entrance, Perth Children's Hospital, 15 Hospital Avenue, Nedlands WA 6009 (ABN 86 009 278 755), to be applied for unrestricted, general charitable purposes. In respect of such legacy, I direct that the receipt of a duly authorised officer shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executors.”
