Leaving a gift in your will is a simple process that could make a real difference. If you do not have a will and wish to create one, it is a good idea to obtain legal advice. If you don't have a solicitor you can contact The Public Trustee in your state or territory.
If you already have a will, then all you need to do is add a codicil – a short legal amendment to your existing will.
A simple way to leave a bequest is to include a residuary gift. This means that a percentage or the remainder of your estate can be left to Bloomhill Cancer Care after you have taken care of your family and other beneficiaries.
There is no requirement to inform us of your intention to leave a bequest in your will, however if you have any questions or would like to discuss your intentions please contact Bloomhill on 07 5445 5794.
To include Bloomhill Cancer Care in your will we suggest that you use the following wording (subject to legal advice):
“I bequeath to Bloomhill Cancer Care (the residue of my estate), or (a specific sum), or (specified items), or (specified percentage of my estate) free of all duties, and a receipt from an authorised officer of the organisation shall be a complete and sufficient discharge for the executor(s)”

Supporting Bloomhill with a gift in your will is one of the most precious gifts you can give.
Because of this we make the following promises to anybody considering leaving a gift in their will regarding how we talk to you, how we treat your gift and how we will recognise you. These are our commitments to you and we take them very seriously.
A gift in your will to Bloomhill will help us continue our work and grow to give more people hope and access to the essential care and support that Bloomhill offers.
Writing a will can seem like a complex process and we always advise that you speak to a solicitor about it. However, if you would like to find out more about gifts in wills and our promises to you, please contact Bloomhill and we will be happy to help.
