Leave a gift in your will

Suggested wording for your Will

Once you have decided what type of gift you would like to leave to the Christmas Bowl, your solicitor will help you make sure your wishes are carried out.

You can use the following wording to include Act for Peace in your Will:

‘I bequest [the whole/a percentage/residue/ fixed amount] of my estate to Act for Peace Ltd [or successor organisation] (ABN 86 619 970 188, registered address: L7, 379 Kent Street, Sydney) for the Christmas Bowl appeal for the purpose it shall determine. This bequest will be free of all duties. The receipt of this bequest by any authorised officer of Act for Peace Ltd shall form valid discharge to my executor.’

To ensure your gift reaches us, it is important to use our full legal name (Act for Peace Ltd) and registered Australian Business Number (ABN 86 619 970 188).

Already have a Will?

You can add a codicil. If you’re happy with your current Will but would now like to leave a gift to the Christmas Bowl, you can ask your solicitor to add a codicil. It needs to be signed and witnessed in the same way as your Will.
