Why leave a gift in your Will?

A gift in your Will has the power to change the future of motor neurone disease.
 
Each day in Australia, two people die from MND and two more are diagnosed.

Research has accelerated our understanding of MND in the last 10 years. The Motor Neurone Disease Research Institute of Australia has played an important role in building and sustaining MND research in Australia. Australian researchers are pushing the boundaries to find innovative ways to treat MND. Many advances have been made possible thanks to the community's generosity.

The MND Research Institute of Australia is totally committed to its vision of a world without MND. If you share this vision, please consider leaving a gift in your Will to the MND Research Institute of Australia and help us work towards a cure for MND. 

A gift in your Will is a simple and effective way to provide support to a cause important to you, and to enable change for future generations. Gifts are critical to ensuring the MND Research Institute of Australia can commit to the continuity of funding needed for significant breakthroughs.
 
A valid Will allows you to decide how you would like your assets to be distributed. You should seek legal advice from a solicitor or authorised trustee company because it is important your wishes are properly expressed, and that the correct legal wording is used.

For a bequest to the Motor Neurone Disease Research Institute of Australia, you might consider the following wording in your will:
 
"I give (my estate) or (portion/the residue of my estate) or (the sum of $________ ) to the Motor Neurone Disease Research Institute of Australia Inc. (ABN 46 789 710 580for research into motor neurone disease.  I declare that the receipt of the Institute’s President, Treasurer, Secretary or Executive Director shall be sufficient discharge to my trustees."

And remember, you do not have to be wealthy to leave a gift in your Will because every dollar has the power to change the future of MND. People leave gifts of all sizes. You can be sure that when combined with those of other supporters, your gift will always have an impact, regardless of size. Larger gifts ($50,000 or more) can acknowledge the testator with a named MND research grant as a tribute.
