Please ensure that your loved ones have been taken care of and once this has been done your bequest to Hobart Football Club can take a number of forms –
- it can be a percentage of the value of your estate (this then protects against inflation and/or changes in circumstances)
- the whole or part of the residue of your estate after you have provided for loved ones
- a fixed amount of money, property, shares, works of art, antiques, insurance policies and/or any other item of value
While there are several types of bequest clauses, the following is the most commonly used for a general bequest –
“I give to Hobart Football Club_____% of my Estate, OR_____% of the residual of my Estate, OR I give to Hobart Football Club the sum of $____________ to be used for its general purposes. The receipt of an authorised officer of Hobart Football Club will be sufficient discharge to my Executor/Trustee.”
