Common ways you can make a gift to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation in your Will
Please consult your legal advisor who will be able to provide more information.
You can make provision for a percentage of your entire estate, after all debts and expenses have been paid, to go to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.
After making other specific gifts, you can give part or the whole of the balance of your estate, after all debts and expenses have been paid, to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.
You can nominate a specific amount of money (a pecuniary bequest).
Your Will can specify items of value such as real estate, shares and life insurance funds to be bequeathed to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.

Our recommendation is you first consult your professional advisors and seek independent and professional advice regarding the terms of your Will and your gift to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation. If you already have a Will, you may need to make a new one. Alternatively, you may be able to attach a codicil, which is an addition or supplement to your Will outlining your gift. A qualified legal advisor will be able to provide you with advice appropriate for your wishes and to correctly word your gift. Here is some suggested wording for the inclusion of a gift to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.
“I hereby give, devise and bequeath to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation (ACN 090 616 443) of Unit 1, 9 Longland St, Newstead, QLD Australia 4006; (Postal address: PO Box 2725, Fortitude Valley BC, Queensland, Australia, 4006) for its general purposes, free from all taxes and duties, (here please specify your gift, e.g. the sum of $x). I direct that the receipt of the Secretary or other duly authorised officer shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executors and Trustees.”
