Bequests and Estate Planning
Leaving a gift in your Will ensures vital research continues beyond your lifetime.
We recommend you talk with your Solicitor or Financial Planner who will ensure your estate plan is correct and your wishes are met.
Different ways to remember JDRF in your estate planning:
- specific amount;
- percentage amount;
- What is left – this is also known as a “gift of residue;
- pledge – an undertaking to pay a certain sum of money within a specified period of time usually at regular intervals. Gifts can be paid through cash or stock gifts;
- Trusts and Funds;
- Life Insurance or Superannuation Funds – these can be used to give money philanthropically.
Many JDRF supporters have a connection to Type 1 Diabetes and wish to have their gift directed to an area of personal interest, please get in touch to discuss this further.
The suggested wording for leaving either a specific or percentage gift in your Will would be: “I bequeath to JDRF Australia for (its general purposes) or (specific purposes) (the residue of my estate, or a specific sum or specified percentage) free of all duties and testamentary expenses for which a receipt of the Treasurer or other authorised officer of the JDRF Australia shall be sufficient discharge to my executor for this bequest.”
JDRF understands that the making of a Will and your estate planning are very personal matters. If you do choose to name JDRF as a beneficiary through your Will or another estate planning vehicle, we would love a simple confirmation advice from you or your solicitor. We do not need any further details, but the confirmation assists us with planning for research. Telling us about your intentions does not legally bind you in any way.
Workplace Giving is a smart way to make a regular donation pre-tax. No matter how small the amount, having a regular contribution deducted directly from your pay can help fund vital research.
There is no need for receipts and no need to wait until the end of the financial year to claim a tax refund as the donation is made directly from your pre-tax pay.
To set up your Workplace Giving donation, follow these easy steps:
- Download and fill out our Workplace Giving application form
- Send the application to your Payroll Department
- Send a copy of the form to firstname.lastname@example.org
- We willll liaise with your employer to organise your donation
Your team mates and employer can take part as well. Please get in touch if you would like to make JDRF a charity of choice at your workplace.
Give for someone else.
