We understand that this is a big personal decision and congratulate you on choosing to make a positive impact on families affected by the children's cancer neuroblastoma for years to come.

We've included information and links below to make this process easy for you including this summary document that you can download and take to your adviser.

Feel free to contact us if you'd like to discuss, or to let us know what else we can do to make this easier for you and other supporters. 

Making a Will

A Will is an important legal document designed to ensure your wishes are followed after your death. A Will protects the assets you have worked hard for and helps your loved ones by providing clear directions. You can either write your own Will or get a professional to write the Will on your behalf (such as a solicitor or public trustee). 

There are four main types of gifts you can leave in your Will to our charity:

  • Residual gift - giving what remains of your Estate after providing for your family and paying any outstanding commitments. 
  • Pecuniary or specific gifts - when you clearly specify how much you'd like to gift to Neuroblastoma Australia.
  • Percentage or fractional gift - essentially gifting a percentage of your Estate to Neuroblastoma Australia.
  • Whole estate - gifting the entirety of your Estate to our charity.

Here are a few helpful websites with more information regarding Wills:

Getting advice

The above information has been provided to be helpful however, it is not intended to be legal advice. Please be aware that neither Neuroblastoma Australia nor its representatives are permitted to serve as personal representative, executor, trustee or witness for a Will or a Trust.

There are online options to assist you to make your own Will however, a legal advisor (such as a solicitor or public trustee) with experience in writing Wills will make sure that you cover all the important aspects of drafting your Will. 

Each Australian state and territory has a Law Society (see below) that can help you to source a local solicitor and the Australian Government website provides links to the Public Trustee in each state.
